Locate Vehicle using BMW Connected App

Does anyone know how frequently the vehicle's location is updated to view in the Connected app? The "last updated" date and time is not consistently refreshed. It might update often for a few hours and then nothing. It has been about 12 hours since the location of my vehicle has been updated.

I don't believe he's asking about production status. He's referring to the vehicle location in the BMW connected app.

Mine seems to always be current, I've never noticed it delayed or inaccurate, however I also don't use the app on a regular basis.

Mine was last updated almost 48 hours ago, when I last used and locked it.

How does it locate it? Do you need a data plan or something specific to your vehicle?

There is no data plan required in the vehicle. The car uses its own data connection. Others may chime in with the details.

I think it is included in the connected drive package / remote services with the SIM card in the car.
