I am having the same issue. How did they fix it? I get some cryptic SSID for my WIFI and an IP of 239.239.239.239. My phone connects just fine to the WIFI in my car with a normal looking IP address.

I have that exact issue including the IP address of 239...(as mentioned above) and so far there is no solution aside from using your 360c via Bluetooth connection to your phone as if it were a plain 360.

Having the same issue with WiFi. I get "--" for the PSL. If I choose Bluetooth I get the PSL (in most cases if the EL road-database has it on file..

I find it's wrong about 30% of the time in Escort Live in my region of Colorado Springs, CO. Seems the maps are missing a few roads on the map as well. Looks like Navteq data from 2008 in my opinion).

I know the 360c is connected to my WiFi Hotspot correctly because if I only have WiFi enabled (with white PSL and dashes)...
I can update firmware
I can update Defender database
I can report Ka band manually and during a real-threat
I can receive cloud-posted Ka band threats if I approach them

I still get PSL "--" however. If I toggle-on Bluetooth and remove WiFi, I get EL's PSL data.

I've given the unit plenty of "reboots" to verify this over the last 2 days. It's my opinion WiFi is not transmitting the PSLs (shoddy as the actual PSL data is anyway).

There's obviously a server issue it would seem. I'd call in to Escort Radar.

This is exactly my issue too...they want me to send it back but I see no reason to. We all don't have faulty units.

Bump. A different brand is looking very appealing after reading the reviews. This lack of functionality is making the decision easy at this point. Hope to see some answers here soon...

You need to be cautious of "other brands". The Grass isn't always greener....

Other brands that I have tried will drive you crazy with false alerts.

In addition to this you would accomplish nothing by what you are needing. "Other Brands" do not even show the Speed Limit Data at all. Don't even have that capability .

I have already played with the other brand. I chose the 360C for the connectivity feature for EL. I never used it on my original Max, because I hated having to open it when I got in the car. I have 6 more days on my return window. Hopefully somebody gets my issue resolved by then. If my detector shows an IP address, my car shows its connected, and I am able to download updates, that tells me its something on their end. Likely a provision on the EL account. But that also shows as active on my device as well, so...
