Default Defender Database Update Frequency

I have a question on state updates to the Defender Database...
I live in WI is travel a lot between WI and MN.
I recently came across Escort Radar's sticky on states included in the weekly updates and it looks to me like the last time WI was updated was back in Aug, 2018 and no indication MN has ever been updated.
So while I see some states (like OH and IL, etc) updated al the time, states like WI or MN rarely or never.
Am I reading this right? (If this is so, I could be paying for a DB subscription and never get any benefit from it).
Could someone confirm or correct my thinking on this? Thanks

Currently there seems to be no traffic enforcement cameras in Minnesota or Wisconsin.

From what I understand there are traffic enforcement cameras in 24 states.

Some states have very few updates, some lots. You will get an email notice when your state does.

If you use EL's cloud database you RD will utilize the most recent database without paying as long as you are hooked up, but it will not update your onboard database for those instances where you don't connect to the cloud.

Whether or not you state has updates, you can still update every couple of weeks to update the entire national database including states that surround you.

Thanks for the replies. I probably was a little confused when I asked the question, but am a lot clearer now what DD is and isn't
