Split Screen Issue

Ahoy,

2014 M235i virtually fully-loaded...which I've LOVED for almost a year now.
Have had the (larger) nav system running in split screen with the left side usually displaying either a map or the entertainment source. The right side of the split screen I've had set to show BMW Online Apps with "Digital Clock & Weather".

About a week ago the entire right side had a "No data found" message and was otherwise blank. Then a few day's later it was replaced with an analog clock...regardless of whether I chose to display "Weather" or "Digital clock with Weather".

I did some poking around and found this:

http://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=71842

I hope they get this remedied, as I really like the clock/weather display. Thought I'd share this here in case others were seeing similar.

Ciao!

Same here. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the upcoming Connected Drive Store and the the 3G. Just a thought.

I don't think the battery has anything to do with it...

maybe the connected drive servers are down and you don't see it

Yea maybe...funny thing. When I go thru connect drive on the master screen I get the current weather, I just can't get it in the split screen to the right. I can have the 3 day forecast on the main screen in either large or split but all I can get on the right side split is that damn analog clock. Even tried it with my iphone plugged in....

to get the 3-day on the right split you need to select widget and the set "first page" is not as easy as with the analog clock

Same here, lost it about a week ago. And I've checked with others, they lost it too. Just the clock now

Saw this on BabyBMW though:
Spoke to BMW Connected Drive this AM, there is a fault with the weather widget (oo-er missus!) and it was affecting some i-drive models. As a short term solution they have done a service update to remove the weather app and replace with a beautiful analogue clock.

It's expected to update again in the next 7 - 10 days and bring the weather widget back via another OTA update.

Same issue here in Canada. I always used it for the weather, great feature. Screw the clock i don't need that. I just switched back to full screen.

I have had pretty bad luck with my connected drive. My auto time zone stopped working for 6 months to the point where it wouldn't let me select mountain time, always went back to California...

And when i did drive to a different time zone. For 2 weeks of driving in the new zone it didn't switch over.

I have it on manual now...

Can confirm BMW is having issues with the service that provides weather to our cars. It's been down for about 5 days now and should be back up within a week or so. Your car will automatically start displaying the weather widget again if you leave it on the analog clock, no update needed.
