Are those updates available for use in the US?

Interesting, but I wonder why they are not available on the BMWUSA site (... or are they ?).

My recollection is that the updates have never been available on the BMW USA site, only from BMW.com/update.

Do you know if: a) the updates work on "US" vehicles and, b) are supported by BMW for US owners to perform updates? It seems strange that there is no mention on BMWUSA.com (no link or such) which leads me to believe it would not be supported (e.g. if something went wrong).

Yes, the updates work on US vehicles. I haven't had a chance to install UPD01006 yet. I just downloaded it, but the outside temp of 26F is not encouraging me to go outside and install it. I have previously installed UPD01004 whenever it came out, and UPD01005 last October.

You have to pass a VIN validation test before you can download the update. If your VIN doesn't pass the test then you can't get the update. I don't know if the VIN test is country-specific, X3-feature-specific, or both.

Applying these updates is documented in your Owner's Manual. See the section on CD/Multimedia, and specifically Software Update. The www.bmw.com/update URL is referenced right there in the manual. Also in that section are the instructions for installing a software update using the USB port in the armrest, as well as instructions for restoring the previous version.

Thanks. I checked the owner's guide just now but the guides are probably written for a worldwide audience and not very explicit about what is supported where. I entered the last 7 char of my VIN on the site but it did not accept it as compatible. I'm not sure if it matters that although the VIN was assigned and production started, it is not completed yet. Hopefully, it will come with the latest and greatest software .

Note: I found the update readme and attached it to my previous post.

Hey Noka, just a thought as this happened to me for one of the earlier BIN updates. I entered my last 7 digits for the VIN and nothing happened. Later, by fluke, I happened to press the Enter key after pasting my VIN number in the box and was able to click on the "continue" button and subsequently able to download my BIN file.

So, just for the heck of it, paste your VIN back in and press enter. Worth a minute of your time. I'll bet you get to the next page where you can download it.

By the way, I'm in Toronto, and these updates are available for U.S. & Canadian customers...can't speak to any other world region though, although I don't see why not.

Dave

As soon as I cut & paste the 7 char (or enter manually one at a time), the following text shows in red (and continue button is greyed out):
The Vehicle Identification Number you entered is not correct. Please check your entry.

Just downloaded the update. No issues. I'll load it as soon as the wife comes back with the car.

Ok, just loaded it. When I get a text message I get (Sender Unknown) then it says the contact's name and the message. Still no email support for the iPhone, unless I'm missing something.

Another software update that does absolutely nothing. Look forward to "upgrading"

I couldn't resist so just downloaded it in the car via Teleservices. Version is now MX 3.5.4 and TX 3.5.5. iPhone iOS 6 issues are not fixed. SMS still works, email only works if you first change iPhone notification settings for emails every time you get in the car. After this workaround emails are wrongly categorised as SMS as before.

Didn't check to see if the answering the phone with the steering wheel button was fixed because I have a sneaking suspicion that won't be either.

Apart from those omissions, it's a great update. I recommend it.

My car definitely says 3.5.5 now for TX so either the doc is wrong or the Teleservices file is older than the bin file on the website. Just noticed the doc lists improvements for iOS 5 which is handy

bmw.com/update site would not accept my 7 digit VIN until I took delivery (makes sense I guess). It was manufactured late Dec-2012 into Jan-2013 (due to holiday shutdown). The plate on the driver's side says: 1/2013. My current software in iDrive says 003.004.031. When I enter the VIN on the web site, it allows download of UPD01006.bin which presumably takes it to 3.5.5 (maybe 3.5.6). Is my s/w above really 3.4.31 (dropping the leading zeros) and would that mean my current installed s/w is older? Why wouldn't my X3 have been produced with the latest s/w? Maybe the module was pre-loaded with the software some time ago before final assembly? Should I do the update?

My 2012 vin shows a software updateavailable and it downloads fine, but when I go to load it, the car says that I don't have a USB installed with update info on it...but I do! All that is on the USB drive is the .bin file. What am I doing wrong?

Try a different USB memory key, as the car is finicky about this.

dwkl, thanks for the heads-up on the UPD01006 update. I had no problem downloading the update and then uploading the file. lair12, i got a similar message about not having a USB installed with update info, but that message cleared in about 3 seconds with no action on my part and I proceeded with the install. The install took about 2 minutes, and replaced the following files: Multimedia MX-003.004.031 and Telephone TX-003.004.031.

I guess you answered my question above and I'll try the update soon.

I downloaded and installed this on January 21/13, everything seems to be working fine. Was there a problem with answering the iPhone 5 with the steering wheel button?
