Default Redline & EL failed to post a LASER encounter

Recently I was on cruise control going across town exactly at the PSL as displayed by GPS. I saw the setup before my detector alerted to LASER. I was being monitored. I was thinking one for Live and a couple seconds later hit the cop spotted button so it would cross post to waze. I then entered a waze report to note laser.

To my dismay the laser Icon did not show up on my EL map. I restarted the app to see if my laser report would show. Nope. The cop spotted one did though. Or maybe that was from my waze report. Five minutes earlier the Redline detected a Ka signal which it posted to EL and which displayed.

I always make sure that the detector is initialized before I start out because EL is kind of hit and miss about actually picking up the detector even though the LED on the live cord is blue and the detector icon is blue. I have learned to touch that icon and look for the confirmation before rolling out.

BTW, I think that EL should try a little harder to initialize the detector on its own or at least alert the user after X time goes bye without initialization.

Is weak LASER reporting a known issue with EL? Why just LASER? If it makes a difference, I have K and X disabled as they are not used here.

Samsung Galaxy SIII running Android 4.1.2. Stock but rooted phone and ClockworkMod boot loader. EL is the latest release available.

The Redline alerted to the laser encounter. Ka and Laser are enabled. TSR is enabled but with K off.

X2, go into Escort Live, Alert Settings, and then just verify Laser is on so it will show on the map.

All settings were as they should be. The only thing a can think of is that spot did not have adequate network coverage. I assumed el cached alerts it could not send for when it could. But it's it really?

Escort Live does not cache alerts when you are in an area with poor network coverage and receive an alert.
