Iphone Tesla app

I have an App problem - I'm not sure its a software or hardware fault however, maybe one of design?! I live in the concrete jungle, and the App seldom works. According to the SC that is due to all the Wi-Fi around, and apparently the X tries to connect to whatever it sees. As a result, my App seldom updates - when I open it, it just gives data from last week on a dull screen, and continually "cycles" trying to get my X info - but cannot.

So I can go to my Wi-Fi settings on the X, turn off Wi-Fi, the little icon top right on the MCU then shows LTE/cellular, and sure enough within seconds, the App makes a connection and updates just fine.

The problem is that, when you turn off Wi-Fi, there is a little message on the MCU stating that the Wi-Fi will turn back "on the next time you drive." So this appears to mean that I always have to turn off Wi-Fi when I stop the car, in order for the App to work?

Baffled here, thanks for any insights.
