Updating computer system
Like updating your software, BMW coding can be as simple as plugging a flash drive into the USB port in your vehicle.Bimmer Tech’s range of multimedia products for BMW also includes a hardware Apple Car Play retrofit as well as our Smart View HD and Smart View HD Flex, offering Apple TV and smartphone mirroring support respectively.To that end, consider the information below to be out of date, with a more thorough update to come.As a general rule, an up-to-date operating system is a secure operating system, and some people are terrible at updating their operating systems.That's probably why Microsoft has -- controversially -- decided to make Windows 10 an automatically-updating OS.Windows 10 automatically checks for, downloads and installs new updates to your PC -- whether you like it or not.Ford policy is one of continuous product development.The right is reserved to change specifications, colours of the models and items illustrated and described on this website at any time.
If you installed the Bimmer Tech Combox Retrofit Kit or Bimmer Tech NBT Navigation Retrofit Kit, BMW’s records will still reflect that your car doesn’t have the new hardware, and therefore, won’t show that you qualify for the software update.
In that case, a simple software update isn’t going to be enough to add any features you’re missing.
Bimmer Tech offers BMW remote coding to improve connectivity with your smartphone and third-party apps, with coding options including Enhanced Bluetooth, BMW Apps and Apple Car Play.
Update, May 15: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has largely addressed the forced updates that often resulted in lost work.
And, while the the recent Wanna Cry ransomware does not (thus far) appear to affect Windows 10, you need to make sure your PC is kept up-to-date with security patches to avoid exactly those sort of attacks.
