The CIC System was first introduced in September 2008 with the F01/F02 7 Series. The CIC model replaced the CCC with a higher resolution display and a more responsive iDrive controller manufactured by Becker which utilized a QNX operating system. Along with internet access, the original maps used were created from TeleAtlas.
Music Storage and DVD Option
The new system also included an 80 GB hard disk drive. You could upload and store up to 8 GB of music files for playback via the USB port in the glove box. In 2009 the CIC iDrive supported DVD video. However, the videos were only displayed when the car was in a parked position, meanwhile, the audio would continue to play during the drive.
