We understand that Lat Long Alt can be derived from 3D Cartesian (X,Y,Z) but does a 5D Cartesian (X, Y, Z, Vx, Vy) does the extra mile to provide a more precise conversion to Lat Long Alt with the additional velocity data?

Your question does not really make sense to me. The precision of the spherical coordinates of a point are determined by the precision of the corresponding Cartesian coordinates, speed does not enter the equation at all.
Perhaps you could explain the context of your problem and why you think the conversion is not precise enough for what you are trying to achieve. Sound a bit like there might be a moving object or vehicle involved?
Cartesian velocity refers to the velocity of an object in a Cartesian coordinate system, which uses three perpendicular axes (x, y, and z) to define the position and motion of the object.
Cartesian velocity is different from other types of velocity, such as linear velocity or angular velocity, because it takes into account the movement in all three dimensions rather than just one or two.
Cartesian velocity is an important factor in converting between Cartesian coordinates and latitude/longitude coordinates. It helps to calculate the change in position of an object over time, which is necessary for accurate conversion.
Yes, cartesian velocity can be used for all types of Lat Long conversions as long as the conversion method takes into account the movement in all three dimensions. However, some conversion methods may be more accurate than others depending on the specific situation.
Cartesian velocity is commonly used in GPS systems to calculate the position of an object in latitude and longitude coordinates. It is also used in navigation systems for ships, airplanes, and other vehicles that need to accurately determine their location in relation to a specific latitude and longitude point.
