Hey everyone!
Does iX not have Congestion Assistant?
On iX3, when I driving on a closed road (e.g. motorway, city expressway). When the driving assistance system has been started , if the set cruising speed is no less than 60km/h, but the actual driving speed is less than 60km/h, the system will prompt ASISST Plus Ready. At this time, click the MODE key on the steering wheel, and the two LED on the steering wheel will light up green. Which means I can completely free my hands. Once the speed returns to above 60, the system will prompt me to take over the vehicle.
However, I haven't seen such a function on iX, may I ask if you have the same problem? I think this is a big software oversight by BMW.

It is in the manual - but it does not show up on my UK vehicle

Turning Assisted Driving Plus on/off
1. Press the button.
2. "Driver assistance"
3. "Driving"
4. "Assisted Driving"
5. "Assisted Driving Plus"
Assisted Driving Plus is automatically offered
when Assisted Driving is active and all functional
requirements for Assisted Driving Plus are met.
Two green LEDs are illuminated on the steering
wheel.
The indicator light is shown in green in the instrument
cluster.
The system starts to assist the driver with the
vehicle control.
Displays in the instrument cluster

I think iX revised the behavior of Driving Assistant Professional, combined Assisted Driving and Assisted Driving Plus, so under Assisted Driving, if the speed is low, the driver will no longer be needing to interact with the wheel for a lengthy period of time. See this video

In Sweden my car (5AU Driving assistant professional) drives "handsfree" in congestions up to a speed of about 10 to 15 km/h. At higher speed I need to regularly touch the steering wheel like in the video.

BMW announced a new "Highway Assist" feature for the new i7, a hands free driving mode for select highways (like GM, Ford). Does anyone know if BMW will give a OTA update for the feature to the current iX owners?
