1. Issue Reporting And ResponseThat has been tried and tried on the escort forum with past issues. Two things happen when problems are reported there.
1. Thread gets removed and/or the poster gets banned.
2. Escort denies the reported problems and claims they have no such reports while on reputable forums and social media the issue is all over the place.
Where did you get this information? Was it posted by Escort that they dialed it back or are you just assuming?
I've found that if a separate thread is created to report a specific issue, and if enough people report that same issue shortly after an event happens that can trigger the issue (such as a recent software update), then Escort is much more likely to look into it, especially if it affects their top line detector.
2. Software 1.8 K Band Adjustment
Escort indicated that 1.8 contained an additional K band lockup resolution item but was cryptic on any details. I have two 360c units which both started to provide less K band filtering after 1.8, especially as respects the rear antenna. I reported it and contacted them to see if there was any way I could revert to 1.6. I even offered to return and pay to reload each with 1.6 because of this issue that I was experiencing. They are always cryptic when it comes to their software but they certainly did not deny that what I was reporting was the case, nor do anything to disabuse me of the reported item. There were other posters on the ERF that reported the same thing who talked to certain individuals at Escort and were told that a modified version of 1.8 was in the works to address the matter . No smoking gun detailed specifics, just the cumulative info and feedback from both sides.
See Thread Below Post #1 below as to "official" content of 1.8
MAX 360c updated to v1.8 MAX 360c
See Thread below for initial report to Escort of 1.8 BSM feedback and indication that they are looking into it:
Additional BSM Punch Through After 1.8 Update MAX 360c
EDIT: I just made a "back-door" request on ERF for Escort to look into it in my response to a member there whose 360c was fine until recently, and now (on 1.9) he is getting a lot of laser falses, even in the back woods country. It would be nice for that to be followed by "front-door" new thread feedback by those here who have experienced the new laser falses so that it gets the attention it deserves.
