NBT EVO ID5/ID6 Software Flash - Remote
Updating your iDrive software is only required in a limited range of situations. For example, if you want to activate a specific feature (like Fullscreen Apple CarPlay), but it isn't supported by your vehicle's current software version, updating your software could be the answer. It may also be the solution when running into compatibility issues with third-party hardware that isn't designed to work with older iDrive software versions.
Without a clear goal in mind or a specific problem that needs fixing, your BMW will almost always require a software update.
Once your order has been received, you will receive an email containing the necessary
software and data, along with shipment of an OBD ENET Cable required to complete the firmware flash. We will also schedule a remote appointment with you once all you have received all of the above and are ready to proceed.
The flashing process takes around 60 minutes in total to be completed.
Please note compatibility is limited with this product as it requires your vehicle to be specced with NBT Evo head unit with ID5 or ID6 software (Professional Navigation Option 8.8"). In other words, your BMW needs the latest on-board computer and operating system. Even if you have a vehicle from 2016, 2015 or 2014 with recent technology, your vehicle may only have the ID4 software, or the older head unit hardware, regular NBT.
