Same initial reaction here, however I've been able to improve range by 50% by determining I could add additional length of about 12" of wire to the receiving-end. The unit hanging from the ceiling in your garage may already have a coated-wire hanging from it (about 6" long in my case), to which I added 12" of similar wire, improving the "antenna" size, seems to work for me.
: Same experience here; yet another trade off of the wave of the future. The advantages of the UGDO is a great looking finish and no batteries need changed. On the other hand, I found the Genie remote has much better range with a fresh battery and can be used without having a key in the ignition. Both seem like something BMW could overcome with a small engineering investment.
