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

You may want to check your app settings and try setting them all to the opposite of what they are currently, and then back again.

When I was using Escort Live app regularly, I would choose to only be shown Live Alerts from other users for Ka & Laser, but not for X and K Band; I found too many users were running detectors with poor filtering settings, and were sending up all sorts of false positive hits for X & K. For this reason, I chose to only receive alerts on the app from other users when it was Ka Band or Laser.

It's me that's leaving these false alerts... I saw it several times... it would be a lockout of K band and it would automatically send a false alert to the map and alot of times say it was KA alert

Any chance the K Band notch filter will make it to the Max II?
Same basic system and it could use it.
Just bought one last Christmas from Escort eBay site.

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?

I don't see it in escort live, I updated the app and still not showing,
so I went to car and did old fashion settings on max360 without app, and there it was,
bad part is you have to do it this way to enable it as it shows default "off"

Did they remember the Bell GT-360?
Posted from my iPhone using the RDF Mobile App!
And the Cobra DP replacement.

I still use the GT360 on FW 1.0. It has been a hoss. Better range on Ka over other Max 360 platforms. And still the most quiet Running FW 1.0. IF the new FW is ok for GT360, time to finally update? You check your DT with GT 360 attached? What does it show? Since you are updated, IF the latest update is available you might see it. Let us know.

I'm a little OCD with things so I factory reset my unit, then did an update all, powered it on for a few minutes, powered it down....then back up and re-personalized my settings. I did not have to 're-pair' the RD with my phone. Everything seems fine so far. Hit it with K and Ka and responded as it should in the typical time frame.

I will say I am very impressed with how Escort has been stepping it up lately and releasing firmware updates/fixes and listening to our feedback. Hopefully this trend will continue!

When I scroll to the k notch in settings, my Max 360c announces all the different settings out loud but is silent when I scroll to k notch but announces it on or off. Anyone else notice this?? (not that it really matters anyways but seems kinda sttange)

Same on the R360c also. IIRC there was another setting on the R360c in version 1.3 that did announce also, for some reason I thought there was 2.

I think they added it to the firmware quickly - which is appreciated. Maybe they did not have the time to get it coded correctly or it was a very minor item as you mentioned that they forgot.

Glad most of the detectors now have Auto JTK and the K notch, that is the important part.

Ran the update this morning. Had some difficulty powering back up in the car. I wish we could get an option for also filtering K below 24.100. I know I’ve seen a breakdown somewhere about K frequency ranges.

Put in 125 miles on the Max 360 BLE 1.10 update today with K notch on. Seemed to work very well. I had 2 Ka encounters, all of my lockouts were grey, and only 1 false BSM to an MDX. No noticeable weirdness or laser falses. Very preliminary report is that it seems pretty good so far - nice quiet ride.

I should have paid closer attention to the block notched. Had one of those moments at an intersection when arrows go berserk with bogeys galore. 102. 125. 219. Nothing in the notch.

I have resisted updating my 360c due to issues I had with earlier FW updates and having to send my unit in for service to fix terrible Ka band false alerts. I have passed over a couple of FW updates but wanted the K notch so I thought I would roll the dice. I updated my Detector Tools and hooked the 360c up and crossed my fingers.

The FW update crashed twice on my MacBook Pro. It failed on update 1 of 6 both times. I then tried my Windoze laptop and the update seemed to run fine. When I plugged it into the car and the detector connected to Wifi the 360c asked if I wanted to update the firmware. I thought it was strange and didn't have 30 minutes to sit and run the car. Then it asked if I wanted to update the database. I did not press Y or N on either and let the detector cycle to its normal operating mode. I went back in the house and updated the firmware again. This time when I plugged it in the car all I got was the database update notice. When I checked the firmware version it had updated properly.

Still buggy updates for me but it looks like everything updated okay. Just hoping my quiet detector doesn't get amnesia and start throwing false alerts like it did on an earlier firmware version I had.

I updated my Max 360 to v1.13 and have observed considerable reduction in K band falses particularly with Hondas and Acuras. However, I experienced several Mazda hits with K notch on. Hopefully, this feature will be further enhanced to improve these K band falses. Glad that Escort is still supporting their older products, though!

Question... I noticed on Escort Live, I could not find a slider or choice to turn on/off the K notch block. Is this done only through the manual on the detecter settings? Thank you.
