So it begins.. Had my first lockup on the way to work. Buttons were unresponsive and it had to unplug it and plug it back in. I took a pic, but cant see anything on camera due to the sun..

Sorry to hear it, man. Unfortunately, it doesn't surprise me. But thanks for reporting it. We need to track these things.

Sorry to hear that. For all of us. My limited use has not seen this. Question, were you using ER Live when this happened. I have not been able to get mine to connect behind the BLE connection on the phone to Live. Maybe that is why not hit me yet.

I was not connected to live and it was one of the gray k band lockups that plauged the Max 360.

Thanks for the heads up. I've had my GT-360 in daily use since mid August and have not seen a lockup yet. I usually have it connected to EL and generated lots of greyed out ones.

Did you report this on ERF and/or the Beltronics forum?

I'm sure 6 months from now they'll be claiming there has never been a report of a lockup on the GT-360, but it's still worth getting it documented on their forums.

I've tried to register on the Beltronics forum, but the capcha doesn't work.. so there's no way for me to post over there. I did just register on the escort forum and I started a thread in the Max360 area.. link to thread Beltronics GT-360 Lockup - When will there be a fix? - Escort Radar Forum

Bel Escort Bras. They look nice at first, but you'd prefer to just remove them and enjoy the view.

"You are the first person to report this issue with the GT360. If the problem persists, send it in for service".

Amazingly the post didn't get scrubbed, but I got the "It should be released soon" response regarding the firmware to fix it. I wont be holding my breath.

LOL. Nope, it is just the word “backwards” spelled backwards. If I say it phonetically it is more like Sdraw K Cab; sss-draw-kay-cab. haha.

I suppose I could have been “Forward” spelled backwards. “drawrof” or “sdrawrof”. Sounds like a Russian farmer trying to describe the sound a dog makes.

It’s like the Gmail disclaimer for the Spam folder. “Any unresolved issues reported here will be deleted automatically once they reach 30 days.”

Someone else mentioned above the issue with registration on Beltronics forum, specifically with the captcha. I had that same issue when I tried to register a few weeks back. I suppose they’re waiting for someone to register and make a post to report the issue? Heh.

Radenso said soon for 9 months on the ProSe
Uniden been saying soon for a while now
Ecort soon = within the next 2 years or 3 rejuvenated rereleased old detectors which ever comes first.

Actually, they are all underwhelming responses. But, your prediction on the GT360 potential future reality caused me to chuckle in a big way.

Saw this too. At least they said “soon”. And not, “see you soon, we dropped selling and supporting it”. That is no excuse. They have no shame.
