My understanding is that the 2015 X3 uses ATT 3G for data transfer and emergency accident reporting.

Anyone know whether it is likely that BMW will provide an upgrade path? Hopefully affordable?

Thanks,
Kevin

CDMA2000 is branded as 3G. You might provide the basis of your “understanding.”

#FakeNews. Notice the predicate of the subtitle, ***8220;in coming years.***8221; That is certainly true, as is ***8220;to make room for newer standards.***8221; Vaporware.

You may notice that 5G is having plenty of launch troubles.

Some of us have already been through the obsoleting of 2G and backfitting our TCU for 3G-4G. IIRC either one of those standards do not provide complete communications and data connectivity, but it has been a while.

So reports by ATT to regulators is fake news? Where is your public information with a later commitment?
