How to Update BMW Software

2021 BMW dashboard
Wondering how to update BMW software? Your new BMW has been equipped with some of the latest tech features for your East Greenwich drives. However, new technology is developing constantly, so you may need to update your BMW software periodically to take advantage of all that your vehicle can offer. Fortunately, performing a BMW iDrive update is quite simple. We’d be happy to teach you how to update BMW software so that you can upgrade your Providence commute!

BMW iDrive Update Tips

Depending on your model, you may need to perform a full or partial BMW iDrive update. Our BMW iDrive update guide will help you determine which is necessary for your particular vehicle:

  • If you have system-wide issues, you might need to update your car’s electronic control modules. This will need to be done by a skilled technician, like the trained staff at our BMW of Warwick service center. A technician will need to use BMW computers to determine the cause of the problem. This step is only required when something in your vehicle is not functioning properly. A full update is only recommended in certain instances.
  • A partial software update is the more common BMW iDrive update. This involves Bluetooth®, multimedia systems, and mobile device compatibility. This simple BMW iDrive update can be performed right at home in Cranston–and we’ll show you exactly how it’s done below.

How to Perform a Partial Software Update

Updating the tech in your BMW will only take a short while – simply follow the steps below.

  • Locate your vehicle’s VIN. You’ll need it to check and see whether there are any updates available for your particular model.
  • Enter the VIN here to check for any necessary updates.
  • Download any available updates to a USB drive.
  • Insert the USB drive into one of your vehicle’s USB ports.
  • Navigate to the “Settings” menu on your iDrive system.
  • Click on “Software Update” and follow the steps that appear on screen.

Once the updates have been transferred, you will be able to take advantage of the most up-to-date software on your Warwick drives.
