    I was driving with Google Maps and using my data plan. As I was moving through Wi-Fi areas, Google Maps was interrupted with a request for me to try and log on to the active Wi-Fi site I was driving through How do I stop that from happening? When I'm traveling, I want to use data. I tried to disable wifi, but it reconnected by itself. Thanks

    Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu (3 dots) > Advanced > Network notification (uncheck)

    alternatively... just turn off Wi-Fi!

    See, also, pages 97, 98, 99 and 100 of the Verizon G900V Users Manual for Lollipop. Well worth a read through as it can answer a lot of questions.

    Turn off the automatic scanning.

    Settings > WiFi > Tap the 3 dots > Advanced

    Disable "Network Notification" and "Always Allow Scanning"

    I never use the built in WiFi scanner. I use an app to scan places that I'm at to decide when and where I want to connect.
