I have a 2011 e90 335i with all necessary options. I'm using one of the "Keyfob" USBs that BMW sent me in my welcome kit. I've downloaded, from www.bmw.com/update
the UPD01005 file to my desktop. Opening this folder in Finder on my Mac shows 1 .xml file and 4 .bin files. Should I just copy the whole UPD01005 folder to the USB? Do I have to extract one of the particular .bin files?
I've formatted the USB drive, via Mac's DiskUtility, as FAT32 and it is completely empty.
Put the UPD01005 file on the USB drive - don't extract the contents - don't put the UPD file in a folder/directory on the USB drive
Plug the USB drive in to the USB port in the armrest/console. Go to the update section in iDrive and perform the update
