BMW is once again underlining its leading role in digitalisation with the new Remote Software Upgrade. With this being the biggest and most extensive upgrade in the premium manufacturer's history so far, more than 750,000 vehicles worldwide will receive the latest version of BMW Operating System 7.0 (version 07/20).

It is also the largest over the air update ever rolled out by an European manufacturer. The upgrade includes new, expanded and enhanced functions, such as Google Android Auto and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

The BMW Operating System 7.0 will be available for over the air download for all compatible BMW vehicles starting in November 2020
The new software version will be available to customers in Singapore from November 2020 and can be downloaded to vehicles directly over the air and installed free of charge. Customers will receive a push notification in their vehicle as soon as the upgrade is available.

With the new updated software, Google Android Auto will be available, allowing customers to use the functions of their smartphone in the car via a wireless connection. The customer can use Google Assistant or touch operation to access their apps without having to operate their smartphone directly.

Google Maps also shows navigation guidance in the Info Display and Head-up Display. Apple Maps navigation information provided via Apple CarPlay now includes turn-by-turn directions and lane information, which is displayed directly in the Head-up Display and in the Info Display.

The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant will have a new and more emotional appearance, and it will also provide more proactive assistance with possible voice commands, and suggestions will be displayed in the redesigned widget.

The virtual character has also been expanded to include new voice commands - for example, for operating electric windows, switching between drive modes or asking for tips on how to drive more efficiently.

The Smart Opener function that enables users to open the boot lid without touching anything, can now be individually configured (for example, the kick feature to open and or close the tailgate) or, if preferred, completely deactivated.

Instructions and valuable tips on multimedia functions and connectivity can be found on a video series on BMW's YouTube channel here.
