Halo everyone,

I have just purchased MAX 360C to replace my valentine V1. I found out some questions by using Escort Live.


Question 1)
My house is nearby the speeding camera. I pass by it everyday. I realized that there are huge difference when you are / aren't connect your phone to Escort live app via Bluetooth.

When i passed by speeding camera, it does alert me when i open my Escort live app and connected by Bluetooth.
When i passed by speeding camera, it doesn't alert me when i did not open my escort live app.

I updated my 360c to 1.2 version (latest), is there anyway I can get alert without connect via Bluetooth?
I feel like I would miss the speeding camera / Red light camera when i did not connect via my phone.

to be honest, Its difficult for me to open app every single time before I drive.

Is radar have memory or data of speeding / red-light camera / GPS? Why i have to connect app for alert?


Question 2)

Is radar to show speed limit without connect the app (via bluetooth)?
It only show speed limit when connected.
It show post speed limit when it disconnected.

Do you have your Max 360c itself updated to the latest Defender Database? Do you have an active subscription to that? It is a paid service.

Escort Live always gives you access to the latest info if you're connected to the cloud, but if you're not actively connected using your phone/WiFi, then it falls back to the Defender DB built directly into the detector.

As for the speed limit info, that's only available when connected to the cloud. There is no speed limit database built into the detector the way there is an RLC/speedcam database.

Hey Vortex,

Thank you for quick reply.
I'm sorry what is the latest defender database? its new word to me. how could i update it?
I did connect my radar with wifi once with Escort Live app, and update to firmware 1.2.

Does Firmware same as defender database?

My app show current subscription expires 9/1/2021.

For Speed limit info, then i might have to look at road sign while driving :)

Firmware and Defender Database are two different things. When you try to update over WiFi or by plugging your detector into your computer and running Escort's update software, it will try and update both. If your Defender DB subscription is expired, it'll error out when you connect, but it looks like yours is still good. You can also try manually updating the Defender database itself, again either in the detector over WiFi or using your computer and the update software.

Assuming it's up to date, I'm not sure why there'd be a mismatch between your detector and Escort Live over the phone.
