Default starting a new tread for info

hi everyone, i was out again today, and like i said the other day, my thinkware f800 pro dash cam, is interfering with my wifi on my IXc. so when my OCD kicks in, i need to do something right away.
my escort live app, has a very hard time connecting to my detector, so when i saw there was a phone off ramp on the PKY i was on, i pulled right over. when i stopped driving, i turned off my dash cam, and the live app, tied right into my detector. than i found my wifi on the detector, and for the first time, it downloaded a update on wifi. i called the dash cam company, and i asked if i could turn off the wifi in the unit. the guy said yes, but i have to do it from their app. guess what, i couldn't get that connected. just my luck.

OK HERE IS MY MAIN QUESTION for people that have wifi detectors. after the detector downloaded the update, i started to drive with the dash cam off. everything on the detector was working fine. i brought my phone back to the home screen, and the live app running in the back, and the detector was still working fine. than i opened the live app, and i logged out. as soon as i did that, the detector lost the wifi. Larry the tech, told me that once i got the detector connected to wifi, i wouldn't need the app in the background. do any of you using wifi, have to keep the phone app running in the background, and when you shut the car off, than start it again, do you have to sign into wifi again, thanks for any help.....

You do not need to keep the app running.

You do not need to log in again to a Wi-fi hotspot after your iXc has connected it. It remembers the login information and auto-connects when in range.

Escort Radar customer service is available from 9am-5:30pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608 or by live chat
