BMW NAV IV Software Update 4.90

Just installed it, the comments on fixes from Garmin are:
  • Added AVRCP capability to NAV IV
  • Fixed an error with the connection to the iPhone 4S
  • Fixed a communication problem with LIN mounts
The one I don't get is AVRCP, it's the bluetooth Audio/Video Remote Control Profile, don't know what it would be used for. I'm also curious about the LIN bus update, so I'm anxious to try it.

The AVRCP and LIN updates are to support the new interactive features of the BMW GS and K1600GT/L.

For example; automatically showing you the nearest Gas Station when the Reserve Light turns on.

Cheers,

Thanks. Some of the features are pretty cool, like actual distance to empty displayed on the GPS and setting the clock on the bike from the GPS. I will play with it today.

I believe AVRCP is also responsible for allowing you to skip/pause/replay tracks from a BT audio headset. (I thought this was part of AVRCP and not A2DP, but not 100% certain).

I can confirm that Bluetooth music still sounds like S___ on 4.90 though, so it really doesn't matter.
