How to...

Make sure your USB drive is formatted FAT32, copy the update file UPD01008.bin to the root of the USB drive (not in a directory). Plug the USB drive into the console USB (under armrest, not glovebox). From your iDrive menu browse to Settings > Software update > Update software. Wait a few for the prompt to update the system software to show up, follow onscreen directions.

Could have sworn its from the armrest. It's been a while, they haven't released an update in a couple of years. Going to update mine later today, will modify instructions if it's from the glove box.

Indeed it is from the armrest USB- it even specifies to plug it in to your audio USB.

As for maps and everything else, they will go through the glove box USB.

So Tag- did you get this from the website, and what improvements, if any, have you noticed with this update? I would sure love for it to function like the USB cable showing playlists, artists, songs, etc. and even album art.

Updated when I got out of work, did it via armrest and it worked as expected.

Yes, the links I posted are direct from BMW Update site. Provided direct links to save you the trouble of having to enter last seven of your VIN.

There are three types of systems this updates, MX/TX 1, 2 and 3.

MX = Multimedia Interface
TX = Telephone Interface
System Version: 1.xx.x, 2.x.x or 3.x.x

If you look at the information pdf it lists what gets updated for each version. My car has version 3 and even though this release lists both the MX and TX updates there is no update for Multimedia for version 3. This is because I already had the previous update installed, version UPD01006 which already included the MX-3.5.4 update. My Telephone however has been updated from version TX-3.5.6 to TX-3.5.8.

Only had a chance to make one call, so far so good. Didn't get a chance to really test it extensively for calls, viewing messages etc. Hoping others can provide feedback.

Can't play music from my iphone anymore...artists/songs all show up, but no artwork and no audio.

Connected via lightning cable to armrest usb...never had an issue before playing as an "External Device USB"

Edit: My car doesn't like this update, rolled back to previous version and problem went away.

NBT works only with newer hardware unfortunately. Hence the NBT acronym.

There's one vendor that does the requisite hardware upgrade (head unit, controller, cables etc). Quite the undertaking, but it might be something for you.

Are you referring to bimmerretrofit.com? haha... yeah I found them too but I don't want to pay for a hardware retrofit. I was just only looking for a simple software upgrade but since this is not possible, it concludes my search lol.

Has anyone done this update? What is necessary to request to have it done at the dealer? How do you format the USB drive if you do it yourself?

Goto www.bmw.com/update and enter your VIN, download the BIN file it tells you is needed for your vehicle and place it on a FAT32 formatted USB stick.

Goto the software update menu on your navigation and tell it to update the software.
