Default Difference between 360c Op Bluetooth vs. WiFi

Is the only advantage to using WiFi in the vehicle not needing to hook the 360c up to a computer for firmware updates? If so, then I'm fine just having the detector hooked up to my home network, which it sees not only in my driveway, but upon approach and departure to my house. I take it all EL database transmissions (receiving and transmitting) occur through Bluetooth if there's no in-vehicle WiFi or Hotspot tethering? My car has WiFi (17 Ford Escape Titanium), but it only receives WiFi when hooked up to our home network in our driveway, just like the 360c, not when on the road. I just don't want to go through the hassle of using Hotspot on my phone if the only advantage to using WiFi on the 360c is the firmware updates in the car.

Wi-Fi offers you the following:
- Firmware updates
- Defender database updates. Your detector uses the internal Defender database when you are not using Escort Live or when you do not have cellphone connectivity.
- Speed limits
- Live alerts

If you use mobile Wi-Fi, then you no longer need to use the Escort Live app for speed limits and Live alerts. Whether you want to use it this way or not is entirely up to you. You can continue to use Escort Live and only use Wi-Fi when you get home.

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