    Kind of sneaky for them to post it, and then not release to their servers until the next day...should've just posted about it today instead.

    *** Be Careful with your EX, because when you update it, IT will default to Factory Settings on the update (at least mine did each time)!! ***

    The old ER units always maintained your old settings, even on updates (unless you cleared them otherwise). Now, there's many complaints that the EX updates are NOT holding the old settings which is a PITA when you update.

    It doesn't clear your lockouts though, thank goodness. Plus with live it's very easy to set them back to your liking. Heck, take a screenshot of your settings beforehand.

    updated to 1.7, only settings that changed was TSR, and GPS were on. Everything else stayed the same. Even my modified K and KA band segs stayed put. Now to test.

    Shouldn't have to reset all my previously saved settings. It's a flaw.

    Allegedly very minor increase in sensitivity. It will never be a Redline original ( nor will it false like the old Refline either).....

    well, 90 min, 50 mile drive...findings; zero BSM falses (mix of city and highway driving), usual suspects though, stores and speed signs. Did notice a very slight/modest increase on K-band. By that I mean maybe an extra 150-300ft range. Tested from a speed sign by my house that alerted about 5 seconds sooner than before updating. TSR off, K segs (1,2,3,on), KA, 2,5,8, highway. In conclusion...happy with the update :bravo:Escort!

    I don't know what Escort changed, but man, the BSM/IVT filter is dramatically better in 1.7. Only had one punch through today...Escalade, 24.090, other than that. Zero K-falses.
