Remote Software Upgrade 21-07 announced

This is the first time I recall seeing such a glossy vid for an id7 update.

Not hit my car yet but we shall see...

Old news of software 7-2021. They can halt any thought of production of that dash screen.

nice video, but nothing of interest in the software update. what I really want is maps to warn me about speed cameras. other car navigation apps beep when approaching a camera. what would also be good if to control the intensity of steering intervention. it is way too strong and scary when I'm intentionally crossing the lane to overtake a cyclist.

21-07 implies July of 2021, yes? And it's October of 2021? Just checking.

For $25 you can get the app from ConnectedDrive to do just that: speed camera and traffic light warnings. It displays warnings even when not using the map actively.

elambo ,

You're on it!

Typically, when I get an OTA update, it's the month when the next update is put out -- so my car got 11/20 in March 21

not available in Australia. also BMW shouldn't charge for that.

I am on 03/2021.46 and it says no updates available. Is there a list of applicable vehicles?

There was a recent post/article from BMW about 07/21 rolling out this month worldwide. Mine was updated at the dealer, I didn't have a say in the matter. My exhaust note seems louder than I'd like but it's probably all in my head. 2021 M340xi

I just got it done when I had my oil change. I haven't tried out everything yet. Exhaust does seem louder though, I'll try it out more later.

I had seen that, and was wondering if My 330 was part of that upgrade. We already have Alexa.

I don't see why 330 will be excluded; I believe 07/21 comes with more than just Alexa

As another poster said, this exists... speed cameras is a Connected Drive add-on for almost nothing... although granted not on the map but on dash and HUD.... and steering intensity is in the settings from version 1... and can be disabled in latest version 2021-7, maybe even earlier
