Adding to that, if you can get your bmw connected credentials and login to bmw connected( google that and you should find it)

Once in there map updates are buried a bit not positioned ideally to find and you will have the option to download them to a usb drive. Suggest you use a 64gb one to allow it to fit.
Note the download is specific to this car alone, it's not for any other cars.

Then place in the usb drive of the car and you will be prompted to update, you can do this whilst you are driving , you will still get directions. Once the download has finished the idrive will reboot.
I'm not sure if this process can be interrupted or not (probably but I've not tried) so I chose to do this On journey taking me half an hour or more to allow it to finish.

Ora updates are as previously stated just for small area updates they will not be for the whole map.
