11/2019.70 if I remember correctly, the last OTA update a couple of months ago.

Got everything over to the car from the phone, started updating then popped up that it couldn't update at this time and try again later. [IMG]undefined[/IMG]

Lol. On older BMWs you could stop the update and it would continue when you next got into the car. If not get the heated seats on and chill!

Nothing here as yet but sounds like it shouldn't be far away.

I've just finished installing the update. It wasn't showing on my connected drive app but when I got in the car and started searching for the update through the iDrive it then found it and started to download it.

After that I then got notifications on my phone that it was ready to download. Took around 30 mins to download on my phone, about 1.5 hours to transfer it to the car (through direct WiFi which was much quicker than the iDrive downloading it) and them 20 mins to install it

Running 07.2020 with android auto at last

Got in the car this morning for work and still saying everything is ready for installation yet it won't trigger the installation to start, says it will let me know when it's ready.

It's deffo downloaded, it says the car is ready and the app has 2 green lights saying upload is complete. It popped up when I came home from work just, so tried again, started to install then bombed out again. Think I'm gonna have to go for a decent schlep as my commute is only 10 miles and people are saying battery needs to be fully charged for it to work, hence now when I start the car then turn it off, it doesn't pop up to start the install, just says it will let me know when it's ready!

Ah ok fair enough, for me i get the install message when I got in the car but before I started the engine, there is a note in the update release that m sport cars can't install the update until the engine is below a certain temperature and as you are aware the battery also needs to have enough charge to perform the update

It's bloody frustrating though, it's only a 20 minute install, I'm sure the battery on my phone could run the update for 20 mins never mind that big lump in the boot!!

Well, gone for a 30 mile schlep and currently sat outside a Starbucks having a brew and the upgrade is on 44%, so as I thought, the battery needed a bit of help after my continual short commutes. Could tell it was different as a checklist appeared that didn't happen on the previous 2 occasions. Hopefully all done in the next 10 mins.

Is it worth me installing this latest 07 20 update? I have the option appear in my I drive over the last couple of days. I remember the effort and time taken to recode all my lost coding when I updated to the 11 19 only a few months back.

Unless I stand to gain a ton of new features, I really don't want to go through all the recoding again.

It depends if you want things like Android Auto, Apple Carplay, Cloud based Maps etc. BMW assistant has been updated, seems a lot slicker and more functionality.

WORD OF WARNING THOUGH, anyone with an Autowatch Ghost, don't do what I did and update away from home, it disabled certain buttons I used to disarm it and I couldn't get the bloody thing working. I had my card with me, couldn't successfully navigate the emergency code and had to ring up Autowatch and a technician talked me through it to access it and change the buttons I use. Thought I was there for the night!! All OK now but the buttons are still disabled for some reason, was fine on previous update.

Just downloaded 07/2020.54 to my 320d without issue. However, one annoying result, that I've discovered so far at least, is that 'Favourites' in the Nav have disappeared from the front screen. From what I remember, in the previous version, 'Recent destinations' was also on the front screen. Now, if you want to access either of them, you have to filter them in 'My destinations' in the next screen. Whoever thought that this was a progressive step?

My car updated on Friday. I see for some reason the maximum instantaneous MPG is 90.0 rather than 99.9. Not sure why that'd be.
Apple car play in HUD is just text and arrows - no maps unfortunately.

I'll try, but it looks as if they will be placed in the second screen. One positive, you can now add a business address.

How long does the update take to upload from the phone to the car? I've left it for ages it just keeps saying uploading. They should have put a progress indicator on the app!

On the iDrive its stuck on preparing update "40%", and I've driven like 30 mins.
