Upgrading 2009 iDrive software?

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the pre 2010 cars couldn't upgrade the iDrive software, presumably as the hardware isn't capable?

Got a used 2009 E92 and I figured it would be nice to update the software to whatever is the latest version, the BMW Update website doesn't seem to list anything for the 2009.

I also see some posts here for the 2015 Maps, is that something we can use on the 2009s?

Thanks guys!

software update ur talking about can be done module by module but i rather get the dealer to upgrade the entire car. also if you have certain 2009 production, the map update cant be done via usb.

For what it's worth, my dealership said they'd update the CIC software for $40. They ran into a snag, and the recommendation was to bring up the level of the entire vehicle, which the used car department ended up goodwilling (would have been a few hundred, otherwise).

If your nav screen has the "i" with the check mark on it, it already has the updated software.
