About the i-Drive

Hi everyone. I got a 06 E90 330i with i-Drive system on it. It's my first car and I love it. But the i-Drive's version is pretty old and never been updated. So just want to ask if there's any possible to upgrade the system to newer version or latest version? How to do it and how much it will cost? Thank you much!

There are vendors that offer it here. If you want the latest and greatest, expect to shell out over 2K.

The price alone isn't worth upgrading. I don't have upgrading the software on your nav should be 1/8 of the cost of the car itself.

You can update the map for free, but upgrading the software will cost you $$$.

The map upgrade is about $200 from a dealer.
