New assistant drive view available in G30 - idrive 7?

Hi,

Does anyone know if the new assistent drive view will become available for the G30? (This is the BMW clip showing the new interface:
)

The assistent drive feature is part of the assistant drive plus package, which I have on my G30. This new view would be really cool ...

Best regards
Steven

Reasonable guess would be with the lci later this year.
But that is just a guess

Thx,

Does that mean that the existing cars would get the upgrade at that time? Or that the models made from the lci will be equipped with it?

2020 G30 has a limited iDrive 7 implementation. Some call it iDrive 7 lite. Also the 2017-2020 G30 has Driver Assist Plus. It's reasonable to suspect the 2021 LCI will be upgraded to Driver Assist Pro and full iDrive 7.

This Assist view in LCP requires Driver Assist Pro. So, no 2020 will not receive this through a future upgrade. FYI, it's relatively rare that BMW back ports features to cars already on the road. Sometimes these features can be enabled through coding, but in this case the 2020 doesn't have the hardware needed to support that view in LCP.

Thx for the feedback! Pity to miss out on this cool feature ... (Just to fully understand, what does LCP mean?)
