Update to UPD05062, UPD05021 or UPD05074???

Hi, Iím kind of new in the BMW world and really could use some help:

Just bought a 335i (MY2014), and want it to be up to date so I checked the software version in the screen:

Media:MN-002.33.002
Telefono:MN-002.33.002


If I go to the Chilean Site (http://www.bmw.cl) and put my VIN it offers two alternatives:

UPD05062 (23.1 MB) Update for vehicles with production date from March 2014 to present

UPD05021 (33,6 MB) Update for vehicles with production date from July 2012 to February 2014

According to a VIN decoder my car has a Production Date of February, 5 2014, so I should choose UPD05021, but Iím not sure because it offers both an Iím juts in between dates (ďto FebruaryĒ, could leave it out)

Also, If I check with my VIN for updates on http://www.bmw.com/, it offers ANOTHER one: UPD05074.bin

So Iím really lost, what should I do for my February, 5 2014 car?

I have 3 options now

UPD05062
UPD05021
UPD05074

Please help

Thanks

Mine ( April 2013) use UPD5021. Perhaps the UPD5074 will work. I think it can be tested. Il will be refused if not for your car.

Is the bmw.com/update service offline?
when i enter the last 7 digits of my VIN number it gives me the following error: "The Vehicle Identification Number you entered is not correct. Please check your entry."

One month ago it was working, with the same VIN number..

I called them 2 weeks ago and they said it was down. I just tried again and it seems it still hasn't been fixed! That is pretty bad. I am trying to fix the album art, first song meta data issue.

It can also depend on what phone you are using.

I would first install 5062 and try it to make sure all features are working OK (og and inc calls, etc.

If any problem you can simply tell it to go back to previous version.
If it is working OK then install 5074 and check all features again. Keep or go back as required.

Actually - even the latest item on the web site is not the latest software. If you have it updated at a dealer then you often get a later version again.
AGAIN - it affects different phones differently - and they also offer different software versions depending on where you are in the world - but the VIN will sort that out for you.

Cheers

I called them today about the same issue, still down.

I was just about to post asking if anyone had the latest firmware for my F30

Thanks NeonTiger and PattoLFC for the updates on the BMW site. I just picked up a 2016 320i and was wanting to make sure all my stuff was up to date, but kept banging my head on the VIN error. Now hopefully BMW will actually get it fixed. This would seem like kind of a giant mess up on their part. Not a lot of good excuses they should have really.

I'm running into the same problem, first time updating since my 3 years of ownership and I was hitting the brickwall. If anyone managed to get it working again, please let us know!

Took them long enough to get this fixed. Someone should fire the IT Staff!

Anyway, BMW is incredibly slow in providing s/w updates. The last for my 13 335i was in 2014 with file; UPD01008.bin and that only brings it up to Apple IOS5 and the current IOS is 10.1.1.

Same for my 12' F30.

Shocking, looks like they only bother with updates for their newer cars now -.-

If no luck with this you can get the NBT flashed by a local specialist.
It takes 30mn to flash a NBT from start to finish. Get bug fixes and latest BT update too, which from memory is : 003.011.002
