Location not updated during shipping

I'm getting my 2015 P85D shipped from Florida and super excited. However, despite the car being almost fully charged and connecting to the Tesla app, the location has not updated in several days. The same thing happened to my friend car when it was shipped. Any ideas why?

Same happened to me. I only saw it once, when they had to unload it to get to a car that was loaded in front of me.

2 Enclosed trailers block the signal

3. Car doesn’t transmit data when in deep sleep
