I am not sure what I just did.

Paid $143.00 to BMW.

I am guessing, that I just ordered the updates for two years.
Something about a two year code.
Apparently, coming on an USB thumb drive.

Thank you for the help.

I will keep you updated.

FWIW, I paid $50 for a lifetime code. I had to download the data, but it worked. We'll see how the next update goes once it becomes available.

Was in my friend's brand new 2 series the other day, and noticed his map is so much cleaner and smooth.

A new interface/GUI.

Are we going or able to get such an update?

BWW reimbursed my money.

The email said that it was not necessary.

They ask that I check in with them, the next time I am in the dealership.

I got money back from BMW.

I just bought a connected drive store update for $50. My 2017 i3 REX doesn’t take the update. Maybe I’m missing something, but can’t make the thing do a software update, it comes back with a QR code and message stating connected drive store not available.

Anyone know what this is?

Thank you.

A 2017 can't do a remote update. You will need to download the 'updater' software onto a computer, use that to download the new update, copy it on a USB drive, plug the USB drive into the idrive in the car and use the idrive menu to complete the update from the USB stick.
