Here is a strange one. I was having intermittent connection problems from the TFT to my Sena unit. About 2 out of 6 times it wouldn't connect to my Sena but it would connect to my phone 9 out of 10 times. I have the latest code in both the TFT and the Sena. The dealer suggested I install the "BMW Motorrad Connected" app and start it before I turn on my bike. It's been about 2 weeks and I'll be darn if the TFT hasn't connected to my helmet every time. I don't understand why an app in my phone would enable my Sena to connect to the TFT but it works. I'm very skeptical but so far so good.
Same issue here! I feel your pain. Iíve started the app before the ride.....not really any help. I have an earlier 2018 firmware on the bike so just saying.
Reliability...... this may be too much info but here it goes.
So I upgraded from a iPhone 7 to 10 (x) apples newest.
It connects better than the iPhone 7 did, more often.
The 7 connected 3 out of 10 rides.....
The 10 (x) 7 out of 10. That is the only thing I changed...the phone.
So what Iím saying is.....maybe during the bikes start-up time and connecting....my newer phone is better with Bluetooth and the bike can see that device better? Higher signal strength?
I have thought about adding a phone mount on bike so itís available and close to the bike all the time during initial power up +3 minutes. i.e. .... Sometimes I fire the bike up, walk 10ft away to grab something...and my guess is the connectivity times out in those few seconds...?
Not a pro at Bluetooth...but seems if BMW could increase the range of receiving signals.... might be better.
