BMW iDrive Guide
CCC - This is the "CCC" version of iDrive. It was in use until around 2009 (year varies by vehicle model) and was replaced by the "CIC" version shown below. The CCC version uses a single DVD for navigation updates.
CIC - This is the "CIC" version of iDrive. It was introduced around 2009 and replaced the "CCC" version. We currently offer the 2015 navigation update for this version of iDrive, for cars with a build date of 09/2009 or later.
NBT - It was introduced for 2013 model cars and replaced the "CIC" version shown above. It is very similar in style to the CIC model but has a 3D effect, is more detailed, and has sharper colors. If you're unsure whether you have CIC or NTB, you can tell by the menu selections. With NBT, the whole line is highighted red while CIC uses a red box outline.
