Telephone: TB-005.002.001
Media: MB-005.002.001

they did the Istep reprogramming on my car earlier this week overnight and now my Idrive current software is

Telephone: TB-005.012.001
Media: MB-005.012.001


Located in Canada.... not sure if it is country specific software

Can that be updated by anyone or do I need to take it to a service center/dealer to get it updated?

And what is the iStep version number for those? I currently have S15A-17-03-506

What's the current version now? Both what the iStep version would be and what the phone/media would show.

None except it now says Apple something on the I drive screen. I don't have an apple product and so was initially concerned that my android products would complain. But no all is well on testing. There's also a roll back in case of problems to factory or last software.

Only TB and MB software were updated with HB remaining as factory.

Not sure what HB element is. T is for telephone and M for media.

It looks like there is a new version out. I asked for mine to be updated while the car was in for something else, and it's been updated to these versions.
I haven't spotted any difference so far.

I think BudgieUk's version might be dealer only at the moment as I didn't get to that version number

My dealer updated my car this week with the same version due to Spotify issues. Spotify is still, well spotty. A few issues with it fixed like the song timer is now smooth. However messages and missed calls keep appearing as new even though they have been read. Oh well can't have everything.....

Hello, would you mind telling me what iDrive firmware you're on?

idrive firmware - to check - go to the map screen and press the options button on the idrive controller and select Navigation Settings > Position and Version > Version Information.

It will show NBTEVO_X --- For example mine is NBTEVO_L

Thank you!
