Ok, mine is going in on Thursday and was told it will take 2 hours to update so keeping my fingers crossed that this update will not screw up what appears to be working fine at the moment.

2 hours? WTF?

That's annoying. I was hoping it would be a simple plug-in exercise...

Mine was done today.

Took 3 hrs.

You get:

Customisable Dynamic and Enduro Pro modes
Sexy new animation when changing menus
The ABS PRO logo on the boot screen

Don't know about connectivity, as I don't use it.

Did it cost anything?

According to my dealer, BMW is requesting all TFT bikes get the update so it should be on the house otherwise my dealer would have told me the cost.

BTW, my dealer is only doing one bike a day because of the time consumption.

I have a 2017 ( actually what I now refer to a 2016.5) and do not have TFT (obviously) . My question is does the dealer charge you if you just bring in the bike for a flash to update software?

Got mine done this morning ... just under 2 hours. Looks much smoother transitioning from one screen to another. Tested the phone, headset, Nav6, turn by turn on board GPS on TFT and streamed Spotify via the TFT connectivity... all working perfectly. With the TFT GPS instructions, the music volume is lowered when the voice command comes on. Previously the music will just mute when the voice command came on. The fuel range used to hover around 450km on a full tank. Now it's actually showing closer to the true mileage on a full tank. There is also a new little symbol on the bottom of TFT to show that the DRL is set on auto and it goes off when the main light comes on. Of course, when you power up ABS Pro comes up on bottom of screen.

However, after the update all Bluetooth connected devices were reset but pairing the phone and my Sena 20s was just a matter of seconds.

I asked why BMW is requesting all TFT to be updated and was told the previous firmware had errors showing up on the diagnostics due to some bugs.

Hopefully, it will be happy days from now although I didn't have any issues with my previous firmware version. Great service from the BMW dealer and especially the guys who are on the ground.
