Default Is using ONLY wifi the same as Live app?

From what I understand, the models (360c, RL360c) that have wifi can connect to the defender database directly without requiring the Live app to be running on the users device.

So, obviously this means that I will be alerted to all the "pre-defined" red-light and speed cameras locations in the defender database.

But then the marketing info of the RL360c says "CONNECTED CAR COMPATIBLE - Built-in Wi-Fi allows for instant shared alerts and software updates."

By saying "instant shared alerts", does this mean that my RL360c (running in stand-alone mode) will alert me to an upcoming "real-time" alerts that another user just submitted such as another escort live user's RD that just detected a LEO in front of me?

If so, then are these the only operational differences between using the RL360c in stand-alone (not running EL app) mode vs. using the live app:
- The Live app will show you a graphic map and icons of the upcoming alerts
- The Live app allows me to add a real-time alert or confirm an existing alert

And speaking of the last point, if I am using the RL360c in stand-alone mode (without running the EL app), if I then "mark" a new location as a red-light, will that be added as a new real-time alert that will be sent out to other live users in the area?

And if I run my RL360c in stand-alone mode, will the LEO radar alerts my detector sees be reported to other nearby live users as a real-time alert?

Yes the wifi mode will alert to everything. And remember. You can press and hold mute button even in “stand alone “ mode to mark when you see police spotted so others will know. These are reported in just the wifi mode too.
