Weather widget not working, Idrive 7

Hi,

Im facing an issue, my weather widget in the main page does not load up, its currently running on version 07/2019

I've tried the following fixes but to no avail

1. Click on "option" on the apps page select "update app and services"
2. Removing all the widgets and re-adding them 1 by 1 (everything works except weather, its just blank)
3. The weather forecast works fine under the "apps" section.... but does not load on the main page widgets
4. Bmw connected works fine, just re-logged in and checked all subscriptions are active.


What could possibily be wrong ?

I believe there must have been an issue with the system today.
Mine was off as well but working fine tonight. Re check now

Mine did not update in the morning. Haven’t checked again.

If it still doesn’t work (and it’s not a general fault) just reboot iDrive. I have to do it every 2 weeks (my car is 1 month old)

UPDATE: Was able to resolve the issue using the following method, found this on the other forum. My weather is back

"After about 10 days of flawless operation, I lost the car's (my new M850i convertible) connection to my iPhone and data to both the weather and news widgets. Tried removing the connection from both the phone and the car and reconnecting, but the car would not recognize the iPhone. Called the BMW Genius line and they successfully talked me through the solution: with car running, reset Idrive by pressing and holding the volume control knob until the screen blanks, then release. Idrive will reboot. Then go to apps and update the apps. Then pair the phone. All seems ok now!"

Had my idrive updated to 03/2020 yesterday and all my widgets disappeared. How do you add them individually

Did you try pressing the options button when you are on the apps page and click "update apps"?

Yes, I've tried to do that. Says that the apps have been updated, but none of the missing ones have reappeared

Did you use your car with a different key? Go to driver profile, select your driver profile again and it should be back up.
