Cool Escort live not working with M1 Dashcam

I recently put an M1 Dashcam with my Max 360 radar detector. Since installing, my app does not work. As you guys know the detector works off of blue tooth and the M1 works off of Wi-Fi.
Here's my problem......When I turn on the Wi-Fi for the M1 on, it turns off my cellular data from my phone company. The app is not working because it's looking for a signal to pass the data and I have no Wi-Fi in my car. So basically what I end up with is about 2 minutes of the app working when I'm by a Wi-Fi source then it fades. I have a Samsung S8 with ATT
Would anyone know how to fix this? How to get Wi-Fi to my car. Is there something I can buy that would help?
I love my Escort devices and I use the app everyday.
Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.......

You aren't supposed to run the M1 app while driving. It's supposed to be used to configure the M1 and review videos. So when you aren't running the app, your phone isn't connected to the M1's wifi.

I'm not using the M1 app during driving. I'm trying to use Escort Live but using wi-fi on my M1 camera so it can record is preventing me from using the Escort Live App working. Any ideas??

Asking a follow-up question. Why are you running WiFi on the M1 dashcam? It isn't needed unless you are running the M1 app. Videos are stored on the microSD card directly.

I'm confused.

So you're saying that I can turn off my Wi-Fi on my phone and still have the M1 work,record (Green blinking light)? I thought in order to record anything, you had to have the WI-Fi on so the Greenlight would blink and that showed it was connected to WiFi.
Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

Yes, correct. The M1 doesn't require your smartphone to be connected to the M1's WiFi while recording. You only use WiFi to manage its settings or to review recordings.

Happy to help. Don't feel like a dummy, tho. This forum was created so that we users could help one-another. There's no such thing as a "dummy" here.
