New satellite radio support for iDrive....

With the 4th-gen BMW iDrive...

* Sirius now features "Instant Replay" - giving you the option to timeshift / replay a favorite song or program
* The channel list can now be displayed as channel name, artist and song title - giving a "sneak-peek" to what is currently being played on the channel line-up
* Channel surfing is now made easier by the provision of Direct Channel Input.
* Favorite Alert will notify users when a favorite artist, song, or game is being played.
* Traffic Jump allows users to automatically tune to the traffic message of a chosen metro area when the message becomes available to avoid missing important updates.

Does anyone know if this is a simple software flash? Run the update through BMW assit? Are there hardware components that make this possible?

I am fairly certain it is not just a software issue. My car got reflashed a few weeks ago so it has all the latest software. But, I don't have any of these features.

I called my dealer and they scheduled me for Thursday and will have a loaner for me while they update my system. I will let everyone know once I get the car back.

Well, I brought my car in and the dealer had the DVD's they needed to load but had an issue... Apparently, they need a liscence code that BMW needs to provide them. Since I was their first customer to ask for this update, I was sort of the lab rat that they used to get things going. They were unable to do the upgrade until they received the licence # from BMW which they are receiving today... so I am going back in on the weekend to get the upgrade done. They are charging me 1.5 hours labor.

The new Sirius features seem to be only applicable to the new CIC/OEM HU with built-in Sirius tuner introduced from 10/09 production on.

That is the map update, not a code update...
