No they have been sending out emails.. several times a week now for over a month....I never received database update information before over many years.. now all of a sudden I get them every week....I'm sure they are feeling the pinch of Uniden and Radenso.
Exactly! E-mails are flooding in and the database e-mails are new as well. I have seen 2 in the last couple of week and never a one before. Looks like they are jumping up and down for attention.

Keep in mind also, it's tax return season.

If you pay attention, you'll notice the absolute ONSLAUGHT of Mattress Commercials.

Admittedly - I followed the lemmings over the cliff, and bought a mattress this year!
But that's PURE coincidence, as my back has been killing me and my mattress just turned 10.
While my back apparently turned 80. :corsair:

I haven't had an issue yet with my 360c
Neither did I until 3 months in, then I did. They are few and far between for me, but they are there unfortunately.

With all the discussion about the Max360 and Max360c locking up, I'm curious how widespread this issue is and how many of you have experienced it. Is it a bunch of us or only a few with the silent majority experiencing the detector running fine? Let's see what the poll says...
Well its Sept 22, 2018 and after the latest version of firmware load over wifi with 360c, locking up everyday
great work ESCORT !!! Paid $650 for this issue ;0(

Are you using Escort Live (EL) and could you please describe the nature of the lockup?
The reason I ask is because I had lockups on my 360c prior to updating to v1.5 (USB inniated, not WiFi) but none after. However, the type I had manifested in a single unidentified signal with all-greyed signal strength bars as if locked out. Nothing else worked that was radar related but the GPS side of the RD still functioned. And, I have never used EL.

If it locks up more now then prior to the update, you may want to try to update again via USB and see what happens.

The good news is Escort finally admitted they could reproduce the lockup issue on the 360c (without Escort live): K band and lockup - Escort Radar Forum
Hopefully a fix will be released soon.

Yes. I'm beginning to think that there are at least 3 types of lockups, not the 2 originally identified by Escort. I know at least one I had (single unidentified greyed-out signal locked on screen with no further radar detection), was unrelated to EL and that a 2nd was identified by Escort as being EL related, but it seems now there may be a third per your post. Also complicating the matter is that they do not seem to be identical on the 360 vs 360c since they use different software and Escort is hesitant to apply the 360 "fix" to the 360c.

It would be nice to have a new LockUp Poll effective going forward only, separately for each the 360 and the 360c, identifying the type of lockup still persisting such as:
1. Display Screen Locked with 1 unidentified greyed-out source, no further radar detection available
2 Display screen functions to show what Mode the RD is in (including scanning bars working) but radar reception is locked/sleep
3. Displayed Alert is active and continuous for miles until RD rebooted
4. Other (Describe)

Each lockup would be identified with the RD Model, the software version in use and whether EL was in use. If no poll I'm hoping anyone reporting lockups going forward can supply this detailed info so this thing can be resolved on both detectors and done without adversely affecting their performance. I'm also wondering what happens if the 360c is being WiFi updated via home or car connection and that connection is interrupted such that you go into a blind spot or pull out of your garage too soon. Does this create another potential for lockups on the 360c that does not exist on the 360?
