Mein Auto: 2017 BMW i3 REx
BMW Connected Offline... Again!

My iDrive screen shows the globe with a slash through it, meaning my Ď17 i3 REx isnít seeing the network via its SIM card. This has been an on-again, off-again problem for me since taking delivery.

Itíll work for a week or ten days, then be offline for a couple of days. Repeat.

Itís been offline for about 3 weeks now. Todayís high in Phoenix is forecast for 116, meaning I canít precondition the cabin via the app. I know I can set Departure Times via iDrive, but sometimes you donít know exactly when youíll be leaving ó for instance, when visiting relatives on a lazy Sunday, it used to be ideal to climatize the cabin 20 minutes before leaving.

Any idea how to get things connected again? On a car full of gizmos and tech, preconditioning via the app was one of my favorite features.
