Phone problem getting out of Park?

I a post recently about someone who said the ferry caused their car to not get out of park. I agree with people's assessment that it was just a coincidence about being on a ferry.
All of a sudden over the last 4 days, my Moto G5 plus gets me into the car no problem (although now it seems I need to be closer to the door), but I get in, put on my seatbelt, hit the brake and trying to shift into R or D and nothing happens. I try a few times and then I get the message to put my keycard on the center console. I keep trying and then finally it works. It's not a scientific test, but it seems after I get the keycard message, if I take my foot off the brake and try again, it works.
I am still on the .28 firmware.
I rebooted phone, I have the Tesla logo on the top status bar. Notification shows "connected" to my car when get close. I never have the app running in background. Hasn't been a problem since when I got the car in May.
Anyone else experiencing this lately?
