Hi,

I have an Escort Max 360 and was recently given a super-speeder citation because I was unaware that some law enforcement agencies still use K-band radar (I literally just ignored the alert). Mandatory court appearance in May.

By "super speeder" I assume you're in GA, K band is still very prevalent in GA and should always be taken seriously, sorry to hear you had to learn the hard way.

Again, sorry to hear about your ticket. I grew-up in Ohio which back in the 70's and 80's was probably the most ridiculous state for enforcement but unfortunately, I think GA passed them a long time ago. You'll definitely want to lawyer-up for this one and it will likely be expensive because the gov't entity will be most interested in getting their $$. We have a couple members that are attorney's that specialize in traffic tickets but neither are in GA.

I'd suggest making a posting in the "help, I got a traffic ticket" section of the forum with some of the details (be careful about listing detailed specifics because your case is pending and this is a public forum) and maybe someone will respond that knows a good attorney in that area. Again, wish you were joining us under better circumstances but a traffic ticket is how a lot of members started here.

Don't forget to keep your M360's firmware up-to-date to provide for the best possible BSM K-band filtering to help reduce false alerts so you know when an actual LEO is radaring.

@The No Fly List , Welcome to the Forum from Tennessee!! I am definitely sorry to hear about your ticket. Unfortunately, K-band is alive and in use in many areas of the country. Hopefully an attorney can help help you in your case. Good luck!!

Hope you prevail in court. A $200 surcharge applied to the ticket will really hurt!

The cop made it a "local ordinance" so it's most definitely a cash grab for the city

You can not update the firmware through the EL app, only via usb to a computer.

I would have to go back and look but I believe it was nov/dec of last year where they introduced the K-notch feature.

If you have not, download Detector Tools Pro from Escorts site and connect your M360 with a usb cable that supports data as well as power.

One of the attorney's active here (@Disconnected) is from the ticket clinic. I think they primarily focus on FL but maybe he can assist or direct you in GA as well. Good luck!

Give my office a call at 1-800-Citation tell them to transfer you to the Georgia division. We have an office in Valdosta, GA.

@The No Fly List, you'll definitely want to call this number. @Disconnected is a highly respected traffic attorney and RDF member. His court record is second to none and I would trust anyone he recommends within his group.
