Idrive update to 2017+? Radically better

Hey Guys,

If you have driven a newer 2017+ Idrive system you'll notice its radically better. Especially in voice recognition. The voice controls are amazing in 2017+ cars. I can't stand how bad my 2016 is now.

Does anyone know if this can be upgraded just via software? I'd do anything to have that amazing voice recognition like my 2017+ Cars in my 2016.

Thanks all!

I was looking to do this for my '14 F10 as well and during a discount phase for connecteddrive downloads there was a VIN check on the shop site to see if the model of your nav prof is suitable for this upgrade or installing apple car play and so on. For me the result was F10 LCI cannot get the new software only F8* and f12 LCI and of course all 2018 onwards models were suitable for this (even 1series ). So unless you change the nav hardware there is no official way to upgrade.
