New Bluetooth software update

I just checked the BMW software update site and found a new Bluetooth update file (UPD1005) 8.06MB.

it looks like they updated the Telephone support firmware from 3.5.4 to 3.5.5.

They don't post a release date, so I don't know how long it's been there.


http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/nav...gion=&country=


From the release notes:

Software update (MX-3.5.4, TX-3.5.5)

Content

> Office: Improved support for email messages.

> Telephone: Improved USB connection for iPhone devices with iOS 5. Improved connectivity of certain devices. For certain devices, better display and stability during calls. Improved Bluetooth connection with
HTC devices. Improved sorting of the phone book in Android devices in Japan.

> Multimedia: Improved display of additional album and track information. Improved connection and control in Bluetooth audio devices.

> Improved functionality of TeleService, BMW Online and Internet for iPhone devices with iOS 5.

Sweet. I'm going to update tonight. Hopefully it helps with using Pandora through USB.

Hmm... It says its for build dates March 2012 to present. I have a 2012 F30, but build date was Dec 2011.... There's another option of March 2010 to Dec 2010. So my date is right in the middle! Anyone know if I can download it? Thanks.

When you go to the site, it asks for the 7-char VIN. It uses that to validate which updates apply to your car. Try it and see what it lists.

I did... It comes up with what I said above. Weird... It puts me in the middle of the two dates...

Any way, when did this update come out? Because I did a software update that may have been the same as this one about 1 month ago.

If you coded your car, would this reset any of your coding?

The new version is 3.5.5. You can display the version you have on car via the Software Update setting.

The update screen also has a back-out option so if you run into problems, you can always revert the update.

There are no dates on the update, so who knows.

This is not an ECU software module, it's only the Bluetooth/Telephone software. It doesn't affect any coding (or at least it didn't for me).

I just did the update; it updated my Bluetooth to 3.5.5, but Multi-media stayed at 3.5.4.

Is this correct? Thanks.

Well, I had hopes that this update would fix the issues with album art, artist and song title over USB. But all for nothing! hehe

I stuck my VIN number in today and it offered me the UPD1005.bin update. Installed it in the car OK, although no noticeable changes as yet i.e. SMS works when it feels like it, email doesn't work at all. Then again the readme does only refer to iOS5 improvements and doesn't mention iOS6
