I believe BMW has to perform the iDrive system update. I'm on version NBTevo_P18362I and I believe there is an "Q" update available.
Okay, thank you, sir! I'll do that this evening.

For the iDrive, I'm on version NBTevo_J16383I which is really outdated so I'll have BMW update iDrive when I'm in there next.
Most dealers won't update just because you ask. They need a fault or trouble to give them reason. Otherwise BMW might not pay them. iStep upgrade, upgrades all 17 modules in the car. Takes about 2 hours if all goes well.
