Traffic data acquisition times uneven

Most of the time I pull out of a garage, I'll get traffic information within a half minute or less, but sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes or more. Most of my daily drives are in the same neighborhood with unobstructed views of the sky.

What could explain the inconsistency in acquisition times?

Thank you,
Robert

Signal Strength, Connection Quality, Sat Condition, data that's available for the system to use........ many many factors. It is like one day your cellphone reception is so good and next day is bad even you are at the same spot and with same amount of foot traffic around you. Or, sometimes your internet seems fast, sometimes it is slow. It is not as simple as I see blue sky.

Any chance it could be something related to the software in the iDrive?
