For MY2020, Drive Recorder is included with the executive package.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
Your vehicle's compatibility for the Remote Software Upgrade depends on the hardware installed in your vehicle. A prerequisite is the Live Cockpit Professional navigation system. The following models currently feature the Remote Software Upgrade: 1 Series, 2 Series Grand Coupe, 3 Series, 3 Series Hybrid, 3 Series Sports Wagon, 7 Series, 8 Series Convertible, 8 Series Coupe, 8 Series (M) Gran Coupe, M8, X5 (M), X6 (M), X7, Z4.


Alternatively, you can conduct the following test to check whether your vehicle is compatible for the Remote Software Upgrade:


So, it looks like for us that don't have the X5M, we are SOL.

No, X5 (M) means all X5s and X5Ms with hardware prereqs. Pretty much all USA X5s and X5Ms have Live Cockpit Professional navigation as standard. Unless you jest then the joke went over my head

Cameras not working after software upgrade

I did the software upgrade yesterday (in Australia) and now the parking system cameras are all over the place. The screens aren't in the right spot, the 3D view doesn't align.

You can see from the pictures that the text / icons don't align to the screen it's displaying, there is a line down the screen like it's trying to split the picture and the circle for the 3D view is on the wrong part of the screen.

Waiting to hear back from the dealer to see if I can revert back to the prior version

Cool!!! You're RHD, right? Maybe the software guys forgot to discuss placements between themselves — menu guys stuck to "same as LHD" rule and the image panel guys used the "switch'em all around" rule.

What version did you get updated to? 11/2019.70, right?

I need to unscramble my notes to aid my memory the next time, but compare to your experience:

The YouTube video leaves out a lot of detail, but has some value.
One can download using cellular on the iPhone and it did not take long.
However, to install there must be a BMW ‘internet’ connection + BT. In my case, I have to stop the video camera from taking over my Wifi.
The actual upgrade does not happen until the car is literally parked and not simply stopped.
It can take at least 20 minutes. The key must be left in the car, the park brake must be on. I can get in and out of the car which I did, but must wait I think maybe 4 minutes before opening the car door when one sees the percentage number and line on the screen.

Unfortunately, you are leaving out details of what you have done or not done.

Have you followed all the instructions in the YouTube video? If so, after you download the file you must drive the car for a bit before parking. In my case, I downloaded the file as I arrived at my office. When it was time to go home, I ran two errands, one of which required a stop. During that driving everything was transferred to the G05.

Then when I got home, I parked the car in the garage and followed instructions noted earlier.

Yep, 11/2019.70 and RHD. It seems to be a little better. Nothing like some bugs in the software. Yet to drive at night to make sure the Lasers are doing what they should!

Today I received a notice from CD that an update was available to download. I immediately went to my garage, started my X5M and went to software update. It searched for about 5 minutes and finally said there was indeed an update. It started to download on my phone, but mid way it gave me an error message that software upgrade wasn't available. I've attempted this several times, but keep getting the same error message. At one point it completely downloaded on my phone, but then gave me the same error message after attempting to transfer it to the vehicle. Has anyone had the same issues?

Thanks

Without a photo of the error message, I have to ask did you actually drive the car for the phase we see in your first photo?

I attempted while driving, on my driveway, and it keeps giving me the exact same error message. I am gonna take it to the dealer tomorrow cause my steering wheel stopped extending, maybe they will update the software for me and place me on 2020-03, fingers crossed.

Unfortunately, the OTA reports are scattered across various posts, both here in this subforum and in the primary forum. Unless someone responds to your query, I fear you must do general searches.

As it turned out the reason I couldn't get OTA upgrade is because of my code changes. This afternoon I again tried checking multiple times in the CD app and in the car and got nothing. So I thought of trying to revert all my changes to stock:

1. VO code with my originally saved stock FA xml. I previously had 5AP removed and added 8TL.
2. In BimmerCode, revert everything to the saved/oldest backup.

Soon after I disabled airplane mode I immediately got the upgrade notification! 👍

The download in the CD app is quick but it took a while to prep/transfer to the car. The actual upgrade after the transfer is about 20-25 minutes.

I now have Spotify and DR is also listed in the supported apps.

That's an interesting correlation. We'll need that to happen a few more times before we can call it highly correlated rather than a coincidence. It would be good to hear similar reports from others.

If it does turn out to be true, that's actually fantastic — it means we have a way to PREVENT OTA updates when we don't want them (bugs, other reasons, etc.)

Understand. I know some had code changes but were able to get OTA. Could it be because I added an option that wasn't originally there - 8TL (?). Hopefully others who couldn't OTA like me can verify.

It seems OTA is not forced. The user still has an option to install it or not, even after SW transfer from phone to the car.

Yes, theory of a modified FA seems like maybe the most likely correlation here if it turns out to be repeatable. So we're mostly looking for modified FAs and VO codings from others.

I get that you don't have to accept the install. But I bet it will just sit there and nag at you and then, one day, in a moment of weakness ... bam, it's in and there is no going back :-).

I had minor issues related to my OTA and now that the dealer gave me 3/2020.59 - perhaps to correct the ACC issue - all is well.

In my experience, I was unable to do the OTA update. I too had the 5DP removed from my FA and also added 8TL. So there might be a correlation with being unable to update via OTA. My X5 is currently at the dealer to repair the steering column not extending. They supposedly updated the software yesterday and today will be getting it back. I will report what software update they put me on.
