    Qobuz And Tidal Dropouts

    Been getting lots of dropouts on both Qobuz and Tidal while driving my vehicle the last couple of days. They've been pretty much un-listenable. Had to skip Qobuz and Tidal and go back to "low definition" Sirius/XM...yuck! What gives?

    Ed, what I do: download albums on my iPhone Tidal and Qobuz app.
    Then play them offline while driving.
    Works perfectly (I have about 300 albums on my phone).

    There is good 4G in my region, but sometimes, when I travel, there is not even 3G.

    It would be unusual for me to ever listen to music in the car. Maybe on a long trip.

    Re: Qobuz And Tidal Dropouts

    The higher res music on Tidal &Qobuz require more bandwidth and our phone companies seem either not to allow that much data or not capable of providing it. Even around the city Tidal is mostly not usable. Tidal does have a settin that will vary the quality based on your phone signal, I haven't tried it. I see some phone companies have a way you can get internet in your car, there's the cost, plus I wonder how good that can be it the regular data isn't up to task.
