Update your vehicle software safely and conveniently over the air.

Always equipped with the latest software version. It is a good and safe feeling to know that your BMW is always up to date and that you have the most recent software on board. And that is exactly what Remote Software Upgrade offers – comfort without stress. By updating your vehicle software over the air you save time while receiving selected function upgrades or new functions free of charge.

HOW THE REMOTE SOFTWARE UPGRADE WORKS.

Learn how to update the software of your BMW via Remote Software Upgrade.

As soon as new software for your BMW is available, you will be notified of it via push message on the My BMW App – as long as it is installed on your Smartphone and connected with the vehicle – or via the control display of your car. Whether in the app or in your BMW, you can open the upgrade and find out which contents are to be updated or which functions are to be enhanced. The Remote Software Upgrade offers you two ways to download the new software: either via the My BMW App or automatically while driving directly via your vehicle. After the download is successfully completed, you will be prompted to confirm installation of the new software, and in doing so, start it. During installation, your car will not be drivable for ca. 20 minutes. After the upgrade, you will be informed of the successful installation before your next trip. If desired, you can call up and view the contents of the upgrade again.
