Wow, this is exciting! Hopefully the competition forces escort to stay on its toes a little more.

MRCD Update
I was just able to confirm that 360/360(c) MRCD Firmware Update will alert like laser (all 4 arrows simultaneously) due to the short distance/immediate response required for both, just as the International model does currently.

Laser False Update
I also noticed that a Firmware Update for the 360 (and presumably for the 360(c)) for additional laser false suppression is in the works with an anticipated release date in about 3-4 weeks, that is providing everything checks out. I'd probably tack on a bit of time as things rarely go as planned with these rather complex devices.
Thanks for update. Saves me time.

maybe they will also update the GT360 and Cobra version too. Hope so. On side note, have been running GT360 still on 1.0 FW. It is very quiet, great range on local K band LEO, and rest of highway and metro Ka units. For me, I really like the R7 display set with the round signal strength, and also the 360c/360 Displays. But the GT360 display, for me, is the fastest in my Rai brain giving me info to ingest the fastest, and clean. :)

Good to see progress on MRCD/T. I hope it works! Not a fan of the "laser type warning", and if the range is "that short", it may end up being a "ticket notifier". Let's hope it has some range. As for the lower frequency issue, it will be interesting to see what the regular 360 does.

I will say my R7 did well with MRCD in MD on my recent trip to FL and back. And Uniden plans to improve on that. Nice! About to post up some video with MRCD capture.

So it will be very similar to the video on YouTube with the 360c international vs mrcd. If so that's pretty long range for that particular source.

This post was from 6 days ago but the first I've seen that ER is working on a reduction of 360 laser falses in the next update and a timeline of 3-4 weeks.

That is good - maybe someone here should ask them if they plan to update their firmware to have radar gun ID as well

You do realize that 3-4 weeks for Escort may be the equivalent of 2 weeks for VR... :laugh:

That's cool. Here's to hoping it can be brought to the entire 360 line, including Beltronics and Cobra detectors on that platform.
It is coming soon to the entire 360 line up across all Cedar brands.

Here's some wording:

Me:


Them:


And some more wording:

Dear support person, if you had not played with your wording back then you would have now had a client with a 2-3 months old retail price paid Max 360c waiting for the update, rather than a Fleabay bought DualPro 360 at 1/3 of that price waiting for that SEMA event.
DualPro 360 has already received MultaRadar CD detection. The firmware installing it is available now on Detector Tools Pro.

I don't understand the issue you have with our wording. Can you explain it in detail? Thanks!

Thank you for responding. We have been burned by VR coming soon like statements. Glad to know it will happen. Hope “soon” context is in days, not weeks and months.

suggestion, if you have something new up your sleeve for your FPGA, now would be a good time to get that done and announced. Or, these days pre-announcing months in advance seem to get mass accolades on other RD makers with RDF members and CM ecosystem in general.

Thank you for your reply Escort Rep. Will these updates be available via wireless for the 360c, or only by detector tools?

Days/weeks for MAX 360c, followed by MAX 360, followed by GT-360.

DualPro 360 has already received MultaRadar CD detection. The firmware installing it is available now on Detector Tools Pro.

I don't understand the issue you have with our wording. Can you explain it in detail? Thanks!
Sure, let me explain:

Months ago I was hell bent on getting a Max 360c. Was ready to cough retail for it.
I asked if the US 360c is able to detect MRCD like the International version does, and if it makes sense for me to get the International version, as I have MRCD in my area AND travel to Europe often.
And most important - if the US spec 360c does not have it - will it / can it be updated to detect it in the future (as I don't know if it's a hardware difference between the 360c US and Int. versions or a firmware one).

The reply was "for MRCD you need the Redline, nothing else in our range can detect it, you don't need the International version of the Redline for that, and no, an International version of the 360c is not good for the US".

No actual comments on the 360c US version - can it be updated in the future, etc.

So I gave up on getting a 360c full price and I got a DualPro 360 at 1/3 of the retail price of the 360c (long live Ebay), and I'm holding on to it till my green goes to greener pastures.

If, back then, the reply was as much as a hint, like "...The difference between the 360c US and Int is only firmware, and MRCD can be added to the US version in the future if need be...", much less "...We are working on it..." I would have jumped on it.

Now, about the DualPro360 already having MRCD detection - since when is that ? Which firmware version ? How is MRCD displayed - as MRCD, or something else ? I updated to 1.2 last night (before reading this), do I now have it ?
Thks

I understand now goblin, thanks. Sorry about the back and forth. There are areas in Canada which use mobile MultaRadar. Due to feedback from our Canadian customers, we decided to add MultaRadar detection to the 360 platform products. The Defender database handles alerts to fixed position cameras.

MultaRadar detection was released last week for DualPro 360 in v1.2 firmware. You will find "MultaRadar" listed in the Bands settings menu. It is only alerting to MultaRadar CD. We may add MultaRadar CT detection in a future update.
