No OTA Map Updates

Post by am1 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 1:11 pm

Hi All

Is anyone having issues getting OTA map updates? My 2017 M140i is still stuck in 2017-3 version and I can't find any way to force it to update. Not sure whether switching to idrive6_lite has hindered this but that's been on since the day I got the car and had no issues with last years updates. 4g signal is fine in my area too

Mine is the same revision.

Even the 2017-3 wasn't up to date and missed out on significant roads that had been long open.

Poor show.

Any reason why you can't update the maps via USB, it's easy if you follow the instructions and updates all of Europe, whereas OTA is simply UK?

With iDrive 6 and my M3, I can update the sat nav with USB. Just need to get a 64gb one, my current 32gb one isn't big enough.
