Default Excessive Mobile Camera Alerts

For a bit over a month, I've been getting exclusively Live Mobile Camera (yellow camera icon) alerts on my detector when it's connected via wifi. Since it's often sending me these alerts at locations where I just drove and saw a K or KA signal, I have started driving with the App open and connected. What I've noticed, is my Detector will get a "Live Mobile Camera" alert, while the app will get an X, K, or KA alert. With the app open, it quickly overrides what the detector received from wifi so I only see the mobile camera alert for a moment. However, this seems to confirm that the detector is interpreting the alerts it's getting from wifi incorrectly.

Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

I'm getting a bunch that only appear on wifi. When I run bluetooth and the app they don't show up. They seem to be at fixed intersections with no red light cameras.

Yes. On the RD only.

And I donít seem to see on App at all.

That is a speed trap alert from the Defender database.

Are you sure while driving down the road your kid or someone didn't mark a bunch of speed trap locations? lol

That's what I thought was happening at first, however these only show on the detector and not on the app. They only show on the detector when it's connected to wifi, not over bluetooth. They are only ever at intersections with no red-light camera.

It is using the internal database when you use Wi-Fi. These are on your unit.

You can clear them individually by pressing MRK twice while it is alerting to them.

To wipe out all of your user marked locations: select Clear Locations/Marked from the detector's Preferences Menu.

I just wanted to clarify, on Escort's "connected" detectors (360c, iXc etc) when using Escort Live . . .

1. Through WiFi, are both the Defender Database and User Database coming from the RD's internal onboard memory?

2. Through BlueTooth, is the Defender Database coming from the EL Online Cloud and User Database coming from the RD's internal onboard memory?

EDIT: This request for clarification was moved to separate thread under "General Detector" as it relates to all Escort GPS enabled detectors (not just the 360c) and because it is broader than the narrow question addressed here solely regarding " Excessive Mobile Camera Alerts".
