Keep reading my ecort went to sleep, I think my ecort goes to sleep...
With computers you can ping a device on the network. If you can’t ping it sometimes there are work arounds that are the equivalent to a ping, like sending a message and getting an acknowledgment.
Can’t a small quick and dirty app maybe with a logger put this to bed and ‘Ping’ a ecort & see if its in LA La Land?
Example: Parked in a lot in front of a store that I know I locked out. GT360 was silent. Came out of store and after restarting car, now shows lockout.

Forgive the possible stupid question here, but this also happened to me with my DP360, but the cause was a temporary lack of GPS lock. Did you see a "0" speed on the screen when the lockout wasn't reporting? If no speed was present, it could have been a lack of GPS.

Zero speed because I was parked in front of the store. The lock out showed up before I restart the detector. I can drive past and park at that store as many times as I desire with the R3 and it never fails to register. Low speed muting will keep the sound off but the display still shows the signal.
When I pulled in the 360 didn’t register anything.
And I’ve sent the GT360 back twice for repairs.

@Up All Night, When you have sent your GT360 back, what has Escort stated they did to your GT360 on the service ticket? I am not too optimistic and totally confident that when I get my Max 360c back the “silent/sleeping” lock up issue will be totally fixed. I almost wish it was a hardware issue on my detector that could be fixed, but it appears it likely could be a firmware issue across the entire Escort/Bel/Cobra 360 series.

First trip was getting a error message.
They said they fixed it by changing some components. Second trip, when they returned it the BT wouldn’t work so they replaced the BT module. I immediately bought the extended warranty since I now wasn’t convinced they were competent and the warranty was almost up. Right up till the moment I pulled up the the store, I believed it was working after the fixes. Now I’m second guessing like everyone else.

I am not second guessing, my sleeps/locks up what ever you want to call it. I posted a video in the Beltronics section of it not alerting to a Ka band sign.

Signs are not a reliable triggering source IMHO

You might want to ask what kind of sign before you provide your opinion (or even watch the video). These are Stalker signs with a full stalker 34.7 gun internals inside, like an ATR. Not K band and certainly not any of the new K band type signs.

Are you running in Auto or AutoNoX by chance? I've noticed the Escorts like to completely filter out door openers in parking lots and not show anything. However, if you switch to Highway mode, they'll then begin showing up and so you'll fall back on low speed muting and lockouts.

So if you're seeing your detector not show door openers like that, try switching to Highway mode and seeing if they get reported and thus locked out consistently.

I been trying to figure this one out for days now. Why does my max 360 keep alerting to locked out things with the word , "Stored" on something it already Stored with a 1 quick alert then the detector sliences it. Glad to know my detector is working correctly.

So if you run it in auto mode it will not alert to locked out places at all? That kind of sucks because I'll rather run highway always.

That 'stored' message might be some flakiness from that FW version - see if it continues and go from there. It might be expanding the lockout area.

When you run in Auto, the detector starts behind the scenes blocking based on speed. It might show your lockouts, but might not either. Same is true for non-locked out locations - it might just filter them and you never see them at low speeds. Example - driving in a strip mall parking lot might be silent. It is supposed to be on par with Highway at around 60mph. I just leave it in Highway all the time and look for my autolockouts to show in gray as I pass them. That's why I am always leary of not seeing my lockouts or seeing different behavior from them - I just want some consistency.

Ahhh, i see. I'll do that..

I haven't noticed any lock ups on my detector because i only drive city and go thru so many populated places with automatic doors and i see the detector with the greyed out alerts a lot so i assume it's working if I know the normal lock out spots.


Wish it was a simple known fix for this sleeping bug. Not sure how anyone is still using their known sleep problem detector daily with this serious and maybe costly issue.

Just watched a Vortex video where he said Escort just dropped update Version 1.10 I think it was. Supposed to fix the sleep issue.
