I too updated my M360 to the newer firmware and it really is quiet. I wanted to reset to factory defaults but forgot so I suspect my Knotch filter was off. Ran it on Highway for some 60 some miles. Very quiet with only Jeep PT. These were short and only a squawk then silence. Definitely watched when passed by Hondas and Caddys. Regretfully no Mazdas.

yes only thru the detector (max 3 ,r360c).im not sure about the others these are the only two i have.
Thanks. Just watched Vortex RL 360c set up Videos. I bet All the 360 platforms will be required to do this via device setting UI.

The 360c (x2) seem to be back to 2018 quietness of my first one before the update run over past couple years. I did not go in and set up the K block either.

For some reason, using a Mac with OS X 10.14, Detector Tools won't recognize my Max 360. I'm using a proper USB cable, and my Max 360 goes into USB mode (as indicated on the status screen). I updated Detector Tools to the latest version, 2.5.5 - Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thank you!

Did you click the green button to discord latest firmware? Or is your serial number not popping up in DT?

Thanks for asking, JonnyAngle. I was going to post a screengrab of the frozen startup screen upon launch of Detector Tools, but suddenly IT WORKED just fine! I'm confused, because for the past two days - on two separate Macs - I'd tried and failed to update, with both connected to internet. I'm mystified, but also glad it all worked out. Now I can't wait to see how the update works, because I've been getting a lot of false alerts. Thank you to all members of this Forum!

I had issues last week trying to update mine on 2 different laptops with no joy.....ended up I had to plug the detector into the car and power it on and off, then back inside on the laptop all was good. I had to google it to find the hint.

Still got a few newer Cadillac SUV and new Honda CRV false K alerts with the new K Notch on our trip to Banff but still much quieter with the K Notch.

Terrible Ka false all day today with my Max 360c. Very annoying. No vehicles for miles and constant 33.4, 33.6 and 33.8 falses. Its like they add and fix one thing and it messes other stuff up!! Any resolution for these rear Ka falses that I never had before Escort??

^^^ Same thing with the Max 3. Ka falsing everyday since I updated to firmware 1.2.

I’ve reached out to Escort support multiple times but have not heard back yet. I wish Escort thoroughly tests firmware before releasing it into the wild like this.

Not sure what to do with the Max 3 now. Keep it and hope that Escort releases a fix or return it back to the store. Very frustrating.

On the Escort forums they blame the lack of fixes on Coronavirus. But supposedly they are working on fixes for various issues. Just be sure to keep the firmware updated and keep Escort Live updated

I thought I got a bunch of ka false s today. My wife texted me that there were cops all over the place about 2 miles down the road so I figure i was getting reflections from that.

That Escort forum is a few days behind and a few sandwiches short of a picnic. I wouldn’t put any stock to what is said over there unless it’s directly coming from @JSherbondy. The mods are complete fanboys and completely bias. 99% of the time they get their info directly from here. Lol.

All tough questions on the Escort Forum get the COVID excuse. 2 year old problems (like EL and wifi connectivity) aren't COVID problems; they're product problems management has not addressed

I’ve noticing most of my Ka falsing is happening within Ka2 Freq: 33.704-33.896

Weird thing is that in the LA, CA that Ka2 freq is hardly ever used. So I’m not sure what is causing it to FALSE to that particular frequency.

@Vortex, can you use your “pull” (and charm, lol) and see if you can get Escort to chime in on this please. It’s affecting multiple Escort units (after later firmware updates) and I’m afraid it will get swept under the rug.
