In that case, a simple software update isn’t going to be enough to add any features you’re missing.
Bimmer Tech offers BMW remote coding to improve connectivity with your smartphone and third-party apps, with coding options including Enhanced Bluetooth, BMW Apps and Apple Car Play.
You will only be able to download and install a software update file from BMW if your Combox or compatible i Drive is factory installed.
If you installed the Bimmer Tech Combox Retrofit Kit or Bimmer Tech NBT Navigation Retrofit Kit, BMW’s records will still reflect that your car doesn’t have the new hardware, and therefore, won’t show that you qualify for the software update.
