I got my Max 360C the first week of Feb 2019 and instantly LOVED it. Excellent protection with the fewest false alerts. All that changed mid June. I started getting random clusters of false ka alerts from the rear. Up to five signals at a time, both driving down the road and while I'm parked. I turned my vehicle around facing the opposite direction and still picked up the same random relentless clusters of false alerts from the rear.
I called to see about a warranty claim and was told it's a know issue that they are working on. Now I'm getting random laser false alerts. Am I the only one experiencing this problem? It seems random, but it's making it almost worthless.
I have it set for automatic updates in the hopes of an update to fix it.

Well this sounds irritating. Is there a way for you to reload the FW and do a factory reset?

I posted the same concerns about the false laser alerts earlier this month. I called and spoke with Escort CS. I sent mine in for repair and got it back in amazing time. They replaced a resister on the main circuit board and it fixed my issues completely. Now mine works like it should and I love it again. Mine was covered under warranty and they even threw in a new windshield suction cup with the magnetic mount and a coiled cigarette lighter power supply free. I love the Escort company and their CS is awesome. That's my experience with them lately.

Welcome to RDF! It’s still under warranty, so I would contact CS again and insist that you want to send it in to be looked at. Make sure you tell them you’re now experiencing an abundance of laser false alerts... anything to get them to agree to taking a look at it. Good luck and keep us posted!
