Tried to do this myself going to www.bmw.com/update. Gave it my VIN info, downloaded the software. iDrive says the software isn't compatible. Anybody know what is the deal?

It means you have the current version that you can install.

Incompatible means that software on vehicle is newer.

That link was to update communications settings in particular in the old days. It is very much a legacy link.

this is really frustrating, is there really nobody who can confirm that carplay in full screen is working/not working with November Idrive update?
I am getting my new G30 in 3 weeks but I hope somebody can get us this info sooner.

Not to rain on your parade, but is there some reason you need to know before you get the car? Is full screen CP a deal killer?

Of course I will take the car and I know I am overreacting. But I am waiting for my car some time and I do not like that I am not able to find any useful answers.. Yes, full screen is supported with IDRIVE version XX.XX, no it is not supported. It should not be that difficult for BWM dealership to answer this but they cannot.
So I was hoping to find more information on Internet but there are just rumors

I totally understand the part about waiting on it. My car is on a ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean. So close and yet still so far away. Another 2 weeks.

It is an aftermarket thing. Not sure it is offered as dealership option yet.

Dealership will charge you to update car if there is no warranty claim to cover service costs.
