So, you have ConnectedDrive showing in your iDrive but it shows Not Connected?

If so, I had this issue recently on 04/11/2021 - not sure if it's the same but it might help. I got in touch with BMW Connected Drive support who said the following:

Unfortunately there was an outage our Technical Team have reported that this has now been rectified. Can I firstly recommend carrying out the following trouble shooting steps in your BMW iDrive which should refresh this information in your BMW:

·In the main menu press “BMW ConnectedDrive”.
·Press the “Option” button on your centre console.
·Please then select “Update BMW Services” on the screen.
·Please wait until “Data Transfer Successful” is displayed on screen before clicking “Ok”.
·Please then allow up to 24 hours for changes to take place before testing this again.
After doing that, it’s also worth checking the car is actually logged in with your username. It sometimes disconnects itself.

Yes, this too! I'll edit my original post to add it in.

With mine i didnt check if i was still logged in, but once I selected update online services it did take a few mins for items to appear such as news and weather (hence the wait 24 hours comment i guess!)

I just had a email for the cyber sale
I don’t use my car often but Apple car play at £185 instead of £265 isn’t bad
Is this for lifetime apple car play ?

So you need to purchase what you want through your my bmw app so once purchase it will know if your car is able to use what you’ve ordered
Yes CarPlay is then for ever (I just rang and spoke to them )
There are issues however with the store that they are sorting out ,
Hopefully no rain this weekend so the covers can come off to test the CarPlay out

Just looked and noted that my Deezer account in the car has not extended by a year, nor is there an option to do so even though I have paid for the renewal. Looks like I will have to wait for it to expire next Tuesday before I can renew it.
The weather and news options are working fine, after been out of subscription for a couple months. But, then I go to Connected Drive - ConnectedDrive Store, it says that the function is no longer available in this vehicle, even after pressing 'Update'

When it expires you can use the online entertainment voucher which you can buy now by clicking on it in the store. When it has expired click on online entertainment and it will let you renew in the car instantly by logging in again. I had to do this today.

Thanks.
Last year it ended 2 weeks early for some reason. I was just expecting to be able to activate it now so it was a seamless event.

Also double check that your Connected Drive in the car is logged in. The above method could log you out.


finally got around to doing this last night and worked perfectly. I genuinely didn't even realise I had an option button. I mean, I know it's there in the centre tunnel, but never pressed it :D

Sounds stupid but seeing the weather icon working in the idrive screen makes it "complete". Thanks again YMBF80, top input which is appreciated

Same here. I never even knew there was the option for weather to appear. All I need now is to have the ability to rearrange the six tiles on the screen.
