Three Tile iDrive Screen possible?

Fri Feb 14, 2020 3:48 pm

Is it possible to get the three tile display on the iDrive screen on a 2015? Is there an updated version of the software to allow this functionality?

I asked about this when I first got my 2017 i3, and was told there's a "ID5 / ID6" hardware upgrade required to the tune of $2,500, and that I'd lose my BMW Connected in the process. :(

I would hold off before dropping $2,500 on the NBT EVO update in the aftermarket at this point, until we find out if BMW won't be doing it for free as part of their response to the cellular carriers' 3G sunset that will knock all of the earlier cars offline.....
