Contrasting this with the 2012 S4 I traded in recently which would operate on the same garage door from down the street pointing in any direction.
Has anyone else noticed this difference? I fear it's simply a 'feature' of the A6's homelink transmitter and not anything I could have replaced, but it's worth seeing if anyone else has noticed the same and then mentioning to the dealer at my next visit.
I have noticed mine feels somewhat lacking in range as well and even worse if the car's rear is facing the garage. My previous C6 S6 was better, and my Jeep Grand Cherokee has more range regardless of direction of travel.
As someone stated, it could have something to do with other interference.. I do have AT&T Digital Life home automation/security so i have a wireless garage tilt sensor on the garage door as well as a wireless outdoor camera nearby.
