How to get weather on-board?

Hey guys. Recently picked up a 2016 M4 (late 2015 build date).

How do i get weather on-board? The car, obviously, doesn't have car-play/touch screen display. It actually has the older "list" view.

My girlfriend just got a 2020 X2 and her car has the weather app. Is this something I can somehow enable?

It may vary by iDrive version. My 2018 has it but I never use it. If I recall I selected an app from Connected Drive online or the BMW Connected app, which was then installed in the car. From there it is just a menu selection in iDrive. I don’t recall if my 2015 had it or not.

It should be in the manual. If you didn’t get paper manuals, you should be able to access the manual in iDrive or on an iPad via the Driver’s Guide app.

ID5/6 has a weather app but I don't think it's available in ID4. If your car has an ATM telematics unit you may be able to upgrade relatively easily to an NBT EVO with ID6.

My 2016 ID4 has the weather app. Believe you'll need the connected service (which expires after 4 years). Don't know if it will stay on after that.

Had a similar build (late 15, MY16) F82 with ID4. There's a weather app in the ConnectedDrive section, which I assume requires an active subscription. (Also, the ConnectedDrive central server seems to lose connectivity on a fairly frequent basis and the associated iDrive features won't work.)

You can also push the control knob right until the split-screen options come up and select the weather widget to show in the split-screen. While the split-screen weather widget option is still selected in the iDrive menu (prior to pushing the knob to make it show in the split screen), hold down one of the preset buttons 1-8 for several seconds and it will save as a "quick select" button.
Then, whenever you have the split-screen enabled, you just hit the designated button and it will pop the weather widget into the far right panel.

Ok cool. Before I retrofit NBT EVO I had a pre-ID4 NBT in my 2014 F32 which did not have weather, even with ConnectedDrive services.
