Awesome, thank you for these updates!

Just updated all my detectors and it's great to see AutoJTK support finally enabled for the Max360/360c detectors as well. I'm personally relieved that my wife now has AutoJTK for her ZW5's...

excellent update for the Max 360c. Just sold mine almost 2 weeks ago. I was waiting on the JTK option what seemed to be a lifetime. Congrats to Max 360c users.
Next I guess will be the latest FW for the R360c for the lock ups on powering down. Mine doesn't appear to have that issue, though I have mine connected to the switched 12volt connection to power off when my car is shut off. Of course it starts back on when the car is turned on because of the last status memory feature of the detector. Looks like Escort support may be back with us users-Awesome job Escort!

Appreciate the update, however, I'm curious to know why this isn't shown in Escort forum first?

I'm part of both forum's and your right I should be shown there, first. But, let's be honest. RDF has alot more RD chatter and for me a lot more informative IMO. I still go to ERF, but I like the competitiveness & knowledge, of RDF members. No knock against ERF, I do learn there too. Just my personal opinion.

I just noticed that with respect to the MAX 360c "connected" detector, the update if performed by wifi could take at least 30 minutes. Some may want to use DT Pro on this particular update to speed up the process. That was helpful info to include with the release. Thanks.

It is so weird after I updated my Max 360 From Version 1.12 to version 1.13, The Detect tools Pro shows version 1.10. How come?!

Looking forward to the update. I hope with Escort participating in this forum and with this update these are signs that Escort is headed in the right direction with their customers. I have been a loyal Escort fan for years. I really would like to keep it that way but have considered other brands lately.

I used Detector Tools Pro on Windows to update my "79" serial number Max360 to v1.13. In the settings I see the "K Notch" option now.

I also updated Escort Live on my Android phone to v3.1.60. When I connect to the Max360 and go into Settings | Radar Detector Settings in Escort Live, I do not see the "K Notch" option available.

I don't see any JTK options available on the Max360 nor Escort Live, but I also do not own ZR5's or ZW5's, so maybe these are hidden unless shifters have been attached?

There are two variants of the Max 360.
  • Serial number 79x with Bluetooth Classic (BTC), chipset QKLBT1
  • Serial number 85x with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), chipset QKLBT2
The version numbers do not align one to one, as the BLE version came out at a later date.

Same here for me....Just checked the R360c to confirm it did not show (JTK options) unless any Z's are hooked up so I believe we want see that option with Max 360 unless we do as well....

Yeah, I've never understood why Escort didn't rectify that situation just to avoid the confusion.

To complete a firmware update with DT Pro it must be re-connected to 12 volts to finalize the installation. If you check it while still plugged into USB immediately after updating, the old firmware version usually still shows. Just thought I'd toss that out there for those who may be new to Escort.

Having dealt personally before with @GailFromCedar I get the feeling she is trying to clean things up with Escort. Shawn at Escort in Middletown, Ohio has been very helpful too. They have a neat showroom if you ever get the chance to stop by.

I'm having issues with EL app after this update to the app... after updating all K band alerts are showing on the map... over half of the alerts on the map are KA alerts and there actually K alerts.... even all the auto lockouts... cluttering the map of false alerts... I swear they never test their updates before they release them
