The iDrive system is prone to failure for no particular reason. I could write pages on all the weird stuff that I've seen. Chalk it up to "BMW electronics" and don't worry about it.
It's a downloaded widget that displays time as well as weather. The car will continue to show the correct time on the internal clock. I've seen a message that indicates the network is down as well as one that seems to say a third party data provider is down. The messages are not very precise so some interpretation is needed.
