Hey guys, my truck was broken into last night and my Max360 stolen. I had switched from a V1 a few years back after that one was stolen lol. So now I'm in need of another. Thinking of going to a Max360c but just did a bit of reading in here and wanted some input.

I live in Houston btw and travel quite a bit to Corpus, SA and Dallas. What band is primarily used in Texas or in Houston for that matter?

Welcome to RDF! You mentioned previously owning a V1, have you ever used the JBV1 app by @johnboy00 or seen it in action? The MAX360c is also a great RD and there is a new Uniden R7 coming out. You truly can't go wrong with any! If I was looking for a new RD, I would contact @chakeubeam is in the San Antonio area who always has great prices on RDs! Again, welcome!!!

Welcome.
After those heartbreakers I think its time to consider taking down your RD everytime you leave.
Were they on the dash or windshield ? Consider a visor mount. Keeps it out of sight. More expensive, but maybe a remote mount.
Good luck.

34.7 is the primary radar band for state police and locals in Harris county. Houston police pretty much use lidar, 35.5 ka, and some k band here and there.

I mount it beneath my mirror. Nobody can see it. It's just my truck that draw alot of attention. And this was partly my fault for leaving my key at the gym.

Its almost exclusively Ka in SA, with some k on the outskirts and Laser downtown. Its sounds like your driving in some pretty sketchy areas, I recommend getting an installed unit for sure.

Feel free to PM me your serial number and I can keep an eye out for it locally.

I was actually pretty fond of the setup and the flush mounted mute button is definitely a bias towards the new 360c...

No, I've never seen that app. But all 3 that you mentioned are what I'm considering. The 360c would use my existing mounting setup but going back to a V1 is an option. I've read about the new r7 but I hate to wait that long...

Wow, that's impressive. Has V1 made some advancements since I had mine or how is this possible? I was aware there was an official V1 app but from what I remember it was pretty useless IMO...
Escort still has the Patent for BlueTooth. What V1 has done is have a Dongle using the Concealed display technology. @BlueV1 may be able to explain this better. @johnboy00 developed JBV1 (free app) that uses the data from V1 (expanding on the V1 app), VVase (CSA, community sourced alerts), PAWS (LEO airplanes), GPS (allows lockouts controlled by JBV1), Potholes, speed traps, Speed limit muting (my favorite feature) and even a Weather Radar... The Situational Awareness is just amazing.

The Max 360c is a nice unit.

Welcome to forum. Max 360 seems to be a sweet unit. Nice to have several good choices. Might be time to look at a dash cam with parking mode. Just a thought.

Very clean install. Sorry to hear your car got burglarized.

Yeah, they are everywhere. Car break-ins in my town of under 2000 from time to time. But I agree there are a lot of good choices out there now.
