I had the same this week. Message on my iPhone: update 07.2019.75.
Downloaded it on my phone and send it to my car. All OK.
In the car: update said it was waiting to start, but I was never asked to start it.
3 days later I got a message on my iPhone: upgrade failed.
And now the phone and car say: no update available.

My 330e was delivered early December. Came with 07/2019.55. After speaking with Connecteddrive about no MPG figures, no Alexa and various other items they suggested I booked it in to a dealer to upgrade to 11/2019 which I did.

Absolutely no difference in any aspect of the car.

Does anyone have Alexa actually installed as an App in the car or is the App visible on ID7?

After getting this response (below) from “connected drive advisor” I had my car software updated at my dealers today. New version is 11/2019.41. After update my 3D remote view (in the app) worked first time (hasn’t worked for weeks before this).

What has surprised me is the number of previous settings that we’re not carried over into the updated iDrive. Not a big issue but just need to go through setting them to what I want.

Response from connected drive advisor below.

“In relation to the OTA Software Updates, as your vehicle has iDrive 7 this means that this is available for your car. When a new update is available for your car a message will appear on your vehicle iDrive prompting you to begin the update.

However currently there is a known issue with this which is currently being worked on, where the updates are not being received in vehicles.

At this time we are advising customers to have this updated at their nearest BMW Centers for now, as there currently isn’t a time frame for when this will be resolved.”

I don't have it myself but as far as I'm aware it should show up in the display if you have it. Try holding the mic button on the wheel & then saying "Alexa".
Btw Alexa will not be able to do any voice commands for car functions.

Good to know on 3D view. I'm going to book the car in for an update in early February next week.

Yeah it zeros all your fuel consumption metrics, apart from Ex-Works. Annoying!

So to fix the brake fluid glitch I booked the 330e into the garage who updated the software to 11/2019.41 and the warning light has gone.

However the central display and instrument clusters seem out of sync now.

When I am hybrid mode the central display stays red whereas before it was blue.
When I put it in sport the instrument display stays blue and apart from the word sport nothing changes, so no rev counter or red screen.

Did anyone else encounter this? Is there a setting I am missing?

After my update, I had an issue where the car graphics on the dash had me driving an X3 but I reset the IDrive (holding in the volume knob) and when it came back on all was correct and working well.

Some 4 weeks on and all is still well.

Try the reset if you haven’t already.

I had something similar :

A full reset did the trick, although at the expense of some settings (not really a big deal).

Thank you for this, I recalled reading your original post at the time but then couldn't locate it to see how you fixed your problem.

Tried the nuclear ☢️ option but no luck so booked into BMW in a few weeks time

Is it true the latest update kills the exhaust note on the m340i?

Had the 11/2019 update and the car is noticeably quieter in any sports mode. ASD is set to Sporty and it's just a lot less pronounced since the update!
