Digital Key Card / Software Upgrade

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi, has anyone registered their digital key card with the iDrive and then get a major software upgrade (03/2019.XX to 07/2019.XX)? Or even a minor upgrade...

Do you need to re-register the digital key card again when you collect the car from dealer after the software upgrade? Similar to losing all settings and having to set it all again from scratch.

Thank you

Mine worked fine after getting a major upgrade and also did not lose any settings as far as I can recall.

Agreed, no issues created by software update to iDrive going from 03/2019.XX to 07/2019.XX. I have registered both the Digital Key Card and installed another digital key on a Samsung S10 phone, both worked after the iDrive update.

I was under the impression that only 1 digital key card can be registered per car. Didn't know it's possible to register two. Dealer only allow 1 digital key card per car though. So for one profile, you have both digital key card and digital key phone? That's great! What about a profile tagged to a digital key card, digital key phone and vehicle key? Thanks

Good to know that I don't have to de-register the digital key card before sending the car for software upgrade, then register the card again when it's back.

With both he meant:
1. The single NFC Key Card (one per car)
2. The Digital Key on his Samsung S10 (up to 5 per car)
