    Hi
    @Andre70
    I find the Wi-Fi devices are more stable and more responsive in general use when you 'Forget' the Wi-Fi connection....
    Unless you're using a personal My-Fi Hotspot in the car for your data connection, the only other reason for a live Wi-Fi connection is for updating the device....
    I always turn off (Forget) Wi-Fi by default and only login for updates....
    Its no big deal for updates, you only have to enter your Wi-Fi password

    Logout of your Wi-Fi....
    (You can't actually log out, you can only 'Forget' the connection)
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Settings --> Wi-Fi
    Tap on your Connected Wi-Fi
    Tap (Modify) Icon
    Tap (Forget) Icon
    Tap (^) Icon Screen top right
    To verify the Wi-Fi is OFF Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) screen top right Wi-Fi logo with an 'X'

    To Reconnect to Wi-Fi.... For Updating etc....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Settings --> Wi-Fi
    Tap on your chosen Wi-Fi
    Enter your Wi-Fi Password
    Tap Done
    Tap Connect

    removed all information of saved wifi networks, rebooted a couple of times and seems to be back, is that a TT feature?

    I do not need a wifi point or a hotspot, used to work perfectly using GPRS with SIM card inside the device.

    did an update with my home wifi, no more traffic, nor radars, SIM card was not connecting anymore.

    removed all saved wifi network from the device, rebooted a couple of time, and seems back to normal, will give it more tests at next trip.
