Question for 2018-2020 i3 (LTE) owners. Does your ConnectedDrive app send commands to the car quicker than 2014-2017 (3G)?
I would be very
surprised if remote command execution is faster under 4G. The amount of data being transmitted wouldn't need to be great, so data speed shouldn't make a big difference.
I'm guessing that remote command execution is slow due to BMW's servers that must relay remote commands in both directions: BMW Connected app -> Internet -> BMW server -> mobile data network -> telematics module -> command execution -> telematics module -> mobile data network -> BMW server -> Internet -> BMW Connected app. Delays could occur at any point along this chain. Tesla's servers might be faster.
