We know that Escort put out updates a little bit ago that seems to have fixed the filtering on the Max platform detectors (360, 360c, II Platinum). Were those updates ever extended to the Beltronics detectors on the same platform (GT7, GT360)? I have always loved the Beltronics alert tones and don't own a Max platform detectors, but wouldn't waste the money if it's going to be useless on K band. Anybody have any info?

My GT360 is as good as my Max360 updated FW family knocking out BSM. This was the case out of the box. Also had 5.5 mi+ Ka warning of slow cycle I/O (meaning LEO once I/O was triggered he kept it on for a bit, then went silent again). So far, I have been impressed. Not sure anyone sells the GT series anymore. ER has cratered wither Bel website related to GT360being available for sale last time I checked.

Bunch of us bought GT360 when internet had big sale putting the GT360 New as low as $270-$299. Easy risk at that point. So far, works great with no lock up. I think it already had the BSM update out of the gate. Has always been quiet. Hope that helps.

My wife loves the GT360. It's the only thing she wants to run in our Van that she drives most of the time. I intially bought it from Blong2506 just to test and then resell but wife took it from me. lol

--- DOUBLEPOST MERGED ---

For one thing she says it looks like Rose Gold so she loves the color LOL And she says "It only goes off when it's a real Cop and doesn't bug me" So I can't argue with her there. Oh and plus she say " I like that it points to where cop is the direction."

Agree.. the look/style, and color grew on me over time. Online pictures do not do it justice verses when on windshield. Your wife is also like my wife. She noticed the different look and approved. She is ok with the 360c style too (but not the color of the trim). She also likes the tiny Pro-M tucked up mostly hidden whatever vehicle it is installed. She was a multi decade V1 user until falses were unbearable. She dumped it years ago. She was used to full logic mode with inner volume control knob set real low, during the heyday years.
