    Yeah.. He already posted in another thread in the 360c section a couple weeks ago that an update was on the way for the GT-360. He said that no one has reported lockups w/ the GT-360 as well. Now they can't say that anymore.

    Just wanted to report grayed-out lockup #2 happened this past weekend. I have no idea how long it was locked up. Didn't notice it until I was almost home.. GREAT JOB ESCORT AT GETTING THE FIRMWARE OUT IN A TIMELY FASHION TO FIX THIS DEFECT! /sarcasm

    Yup, had that happen with the Max360 before the last 360 update. Pretty scary when you pull into the driveway and realize it's been locked up and you don't know for how long.

    Went to an appointment this morning. When I pulled in the parking lot, got 2 KA alerts as I put the car in park. So I looked at E Live and it showed a hit while I was one the freeway. If I had heard an alert, I would have slowed down - at least a little... the alerts don’t say who posted them but the time matches when I would have been there and I seriously doubt there was anyone else in the area.
    Once locked up does it restart?

    And I have never heard of any air patrol in Cleveland, with two airports in close proximity, I doubt they would allow sightseeing tourists in the landing path of commercial passenger flights. .
    Also, E.L. now shuts down if you don’t move for 10 min. So what happens if you are stuck in traffic? I have to look and see if they were smart enough to allow turning that option off or gave an option to increase the time out period.

    On traffic jams... around my travels, I experience massive construction based delays. And accident delays. Here in Indiana so many transient travelers, trucks and cars that wander off road, or crash, or run over obstacle, or run into each other.. Many accidents on crowded highways. That also causes massive log jams that many times find the nav systems don’t give enough warning to avoid (happen too recent to react). So I will get stuck in those. I have not had EL shut down due to no movement in those situations. I guess I move a few feet within the time window.

    Good catch on lack of alert. Will have to keep eye on that. You think it is locking up, or maybe the Ka from someone else comes from a noisy Cobra? Or maybe another model with different sensivitt capability? Of other RD running default all Ka settings, not segmented where it falsed on sat dish or Cobra like RD? Maybe yours is set optimal for lack of falsing. Because of the auto report in Ka, that would have their notice show up, but not yours? Not trying to sweep possible lock up under the table. I am thinking there are other possible reasons for differenence..

    In meantime ER still can’t get my iPhone EL to recognize our GT-360. I have tried everything asked and what I have thought of. It works with multiple Max, Max360, and RL-EX. So, I go naked, no EL with GT-360. Use Waze to compensate. Tired of spending time. I also only show 1.0 firmware for GT-360 on ER Pro PC app and Old Bell app. Yiu know if there are new database and for it?

    Can’t Rem if it was EL or Escargo that had a problem connecting with BT. But when I figured it out it was counter intuitive. Think with Iphone you have to discover detector through EL settings not the iPhone BT setting.

    Updates drove me crazy and Ecort was little or no help. You have to unload the older Ecort / Bell SW on computer and get the newest detector pro SW. Ecort claims they update cameras all of the time. They have even sent me emails to update the GT a few times saying there was a major DB change. Which was nice of them Every-time I start EL it says no detector attached then connects.
