CIC Software Update Versions?

Apologies for all the iDrive questions.

I've got the following software versions on a (retrofitted) CIC system.

Is there an update, and if so - what's new please?

Those aren't the firmware revisions... You'll need to go in with INPA or similar and get them. FYI C1A is the latest.

That update is a combox update to support additional bluetooth devices. To update the software go here https://www.bmw.com/en/footer/software-updates.html

The current update looks this https://www.e90post.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=12

Do you need to go to the dealer to get C1A? or is it within the Datens that you download with INPA/NCS expert?

Mega bump but I've got the USB socket working and am ready to update.

Unfortunately when I try that VIN it says "already up-to-date"?

I think I just need any combox-equipped VIN to download it... which I don't have.

Google UPD01008.bin. You should be able to find it that way.

See inxguy's post above.

The bin file only changes device recognition tables and does not upgrade the CIC operating firmware.

Thanks for posting the .bin file! Got my CIC/Combox Nextgen updated tonight. Hoping it fixes the stuck song title issue. Seems like BMW has pulled the USB update by VIN from their site which sucks. I had an IStep update about a month ago, but was still having issues.

Update: It added a progress bar to the tracks which is kind of cool
