With the official announcement from BMW of the New Navigation Professional and iDrive/ConnectedDrive, many of you have inquired when the technology (both a software and hardware [cpu, graphics processor, hard drive] upgrade) would be implemented on the various models.

Below is the scheduled rollout for the new navigation and iDrive. These dates do not apply to the new iDrive Touch system, which will have a separate rollout and application schedule.

Not without major work because this also requires hardware upgrades (as listed in the post).

The technology train rolls and waits on no one. Our cars are/will be outdated from the moment they hit the ground...lol. Sigh.

Makes absolutely no sense that they upgrade the M6 in July but not the regular 6 series.
And that the 5 & 7 get it now and the 3 before the 6, which is supposed to me their flagship. Bizarre and illogical. I would have to wait until March to order a 650.

I love how BMW love to screw over the customers who buy their first production.
