IDrive upgrade?

Can you update 2006 IDrive to the newer versions with a software update or is the hardware actually different? I basically want smart phone integration.

If you had searched, you would've easily realized that the hardware is different.

Please kindly search next time.

Hardware is different.

I've seen this topic quite a few times already.

That blows!!!


So the forum should be treated as a wiki and not a place to discuss different things such as solutions, work arounds, and such. Got it

Gotta love search trollers if only methodtim would chime in this thread would be complete.

Who said you had to respond? Did someone put a gun to your head?

Here are two threads discussing the feasibility of retrofitting new IDrive into older cars with the old IDrive version

Upgrading 2008 E92 iDrive to latest version (2009+)

Next GEN I-DRIVE Retrofit

And here's a retrofit thread on retrofitting I-Drive into non-I-Drive equipped cars
I-Drive Navigation Retrofit

So STFU before you start mouthing off again.

And don't get me started on your other thread - Air Vent Temp controls? asking what that knurled knob between the vents is for. That information is located in the Owner's Manual.

Just so this isn't a total waste - on a related subject. I'm gay and thinking about switching over. Is this just a software update or is the hardware actually different? (I did check my owner's manual and it's not in there.)

Well that's a trick question.... The answer would normally be "1" but does it really count when it's in your own butt?

I'm not sure on that one. You should ask ragingclue as he is a part of that community and has had more gay experiences than an Elton John groupie.

I really hope it didn't take you too much time to come up with that one.
