First BMW Remote Software Upgrade is now available
BMW Group customers can now ensure their vehicle software in all BMW’s with Operating System 7.0 is updated at all times with Remote Software Upgrade. Available with immediate effect, this feature keeps the vehicle fresh and is as easy as updating a smartphone.
The first upgrade, available from today successively in all BMW ConnectedDrive markets (italian market too), includes the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, whose range of intelligent functions can now be expanded automatically and conveniently over the air.
Remote Software Upgrade offers vehicle-specific content and updates such as function extensions for driver assistance systems (e.g. Active Cruise Control and side collision protection).
Subsequent upgrades will allow customers to source additional vehicle functions from the BMW ConnectedDrive Store and activate them easily in their BMW.
The additional functions of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant can be activated for models such as the new X5, 3 Series and 8 Series with BMW Operating System 7.0 from the introduction of Remote Software Upgrade.
Future Remote Software Upgrades will regularly expand and improve the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant’s skills (free of charge).
These cyclical updates include software adaptations and function extensions.
