G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Nope. Mine works but I haven't driven far to see if it changes when I drive to different areas.

yea, something is up with mine then. The weather app is just blank and it doesnt even show up as an option anymore in the spit screen. nor does that other app, maybe flickr, that show pictures.

does anyone know how to reboot the iDRIVE? does it actually power itself off when the car is off? or is it just sleeping?

I would try turning the car off then on again - I'm unsure if a battery disconnection initiates a reboot, but I would refrain from that. In the Connected Drive iMenu make sure the appropriate apps are checked.

It comes and goes for me. Most of the time it works but all day today I didn't see weather on connected drive.

Maybe this can help, it worked for me.

update iDrive - go to the blank weather screen - press the option key on the idrive controller and there should be a menu on screen with an option to update the app. It downloaded something for a couple of seconds, but the app did not appear while I was driving. Next time I started the car the app was there and all was good.

Mine stopped working today. First time I've noticed it and I look at it frequently. Haven't tried 911Fanatic's suggestion yet...
