    From my understanding the GT-360 is a repackaged Max360. Considering there has been a recent firmware update to the Max360 can we expect that a firmware update to the GT-360 should be in the near future? I'm mainly interested in the enhanced BSM filtering.

    Is possible at the current price point as even it still evolves... That we owners of the GT360 won't see timely firmware updates....i would suggest liking it as is. With that said I think it's a great unit for the price and really, at least in autoscan the IVT filters are hard to beat anyways. They could also tame down the twitchy ramp up but then it would lose some of its unique character that makes me like it.

    Maybe, in another 6 months?....i don't care, it's good like it is.

    The Escort Rep over at their forum said that a FW update for the GT-360 is on the way. It's supposed to fix any lockup issues. So... we know it's coming, but not exactly when.

    I see a thread over there called "360c Lock-up Issue Resolved?" which seems to state this. Glad to hear they are working on an update.

    I will keep up with Larry more on that but I still say if you really like firmware tweaks this isn't your machine. I stuck with 1.5 a long time on my Max360 until my wife got it.... Updated to 1.7...... Talk about docile....i like the unit but it's almost boring it's so good and for me, just a tad shy altering to KA for my needs. On the other hand I've told my wife when she hears it speed up to the speed limit...

    I don't seem to have the range issue on KA band with my GT360 or lockups issues.

    I drove 1200 miles week before Holiday deep into Illinois and it was fairly quiet with BSM. Could tell range isn’t R3 league. Only had one KA close call. Michigan next week & around Ohio week after, will get a better feel on how it does.
    So far keeping it on Highway w/o filtering. No lockups I’m aware of - scan bar never stops.
