that's cool. When Highway Assistant (or what its actually called in the car "Assisted Drive Plus") is engaged in my 24 iX it gives me a disclaimer on the right display that I have to press OK on to get rid of. Did that pop up for you?
Yes my M60 was ordered with it.Was yours ordered when Highway Assist was an option? My M60 was built with every option in June 2022 or so, highway assist wasn't an option. I'm not running the latest software, as I dread dealer visits and haven't seen any OTA for a while. That being said, no-- I get nagged if going above 40 on a highway in the USA.
When I see people posting of a new version, that is when I'll book my dealer visit to get the software update. For now, I think I'm on 11/2022.64 or so, OTA updated from .44 in March.
Hey OP, can you confirm that you have a 2023 iX? I didn't think Highway Assistant was even possible unless you had a 2024 model. I'd be very intrigued if merely a map update could somehow enable this for you. Maybe it was just a fluke?Freak or Feature ???
Prior to last weekend, I would have said that there is no highway assist self drive function on the IX in the UK - absolutely!
The only thing I did notice is that when I started my drive in teh morning, the IX reported that the Vehicle Maps were updated overnight!
Anyone else had the same??
Would be great to gain the same certification as the MachE for UK Motorways!
No Disclaimer Popup for me?that's cool. When Highway Assistant (or what its actually called in the car "Assisted Drive Plus") is engaged in my 24 iX it gives me a disclaimer on the right display that I have to press OK on to get rid of. Did that pop up for you?
Do you have the Build Code for the Driving Assistance pack on your M60?Yes my M60 was ordered with it.
Wow!! This could potentially be really huge news. Maybe BMW is unlocking this feature for 2023's and you've accidentally gotten early access??!?!? (Crossing my fingers this is the case!!)So I can confirm that this evening I drove hands free at 69 mph on dual carriageway and then 60 mph on an A road only dropping out when I approach a LH junction.
No message to acknowledge - cruises and follows without any steering input or grab.
Doesn’t look like a fluke? For now anyway??
Maybe you can share your VIN with someone like @Hugo_nz who has the access to the databases to look it up for you?I checked the Store and there are no options to purchase except Speed cameras and although I searched for highway assistant - the information is very blurred - some indicating a later head unit is required and then other sites contradict as it’s in ID8??
who knows TBH??
Question - how can you determine the ID8 Hardware Level fitted in the vehicle.
Hand pressure can be anywhere. On long trips I often use just my knee or the back of my hand and it detects as a touch. If apply the right pressure I get so relaxed that I literally forget I’m even driving. It’s such a wonderful system. I’m completely satisfied with the current DAPP system even not having Highway Assist!!when I saw the initial press reviews of the IX, the hand pressure on the steering wheel had to be in the top half of the wheel, whereas on mine the pressure can be anywhere N,S,E or West
