Serviced for the 3rd time...@jerzboi, I feel your pain having had issues with my Max360c. Hopefully Escort has some future firmware updates on the horizon which hopefully will address some of your concerns and issues that you and some other people are experiencing.
I know the Max360c is a different Escort detector, but I have to segment my Max360c on Ka to minimize the Ka false alarms. Segmented, my Max360c doesn’t false very often on Ka, but when I run the entire Ka band on, Ka false alarms do occur more frequently.
I just got my Max360c back from being serviced for the third time in early October, and my detector still has the random and non frequent sleeping issue where it stops picking up radar at sometime during the power cycle, and it won’t alert to radar again until power cycled.
It is frustrating when you spend top dollar on a high end radar detector, and it doesn’t meet your expectations. Now I do like my Max360c when it is working properly which is 98-99 percent of the time, but the sleeping issue is significant if it leads to a ticket. I will no longer use my Max360c outside of city driving.
On the RL360c, it definitely sounds like there have been some improvements over the original firmware, but it seems like a lot of people including yourself have some issues on your RL360c that need to be addressed. As I mentioned above, I think a firmware update is on the horizon, and you have a very capable R7 to use for a while. For me, I have my V1G2 which is now my primary detector.
It is a shame when you spend $700-$900 on a product and you don’t feel comfortable using it, or it isn’t performing as expected. I thought about getting an RL360c, but I need to get my Max360c working properly and sell it before I will even consider buying a RL360c. Good Luck!!
