Escort Laser Shifter firmware update V2.12 & V1.12 (Version 2 and Version 1 laser shifters) Release Notes

What’s New in Firmware v2.12


Cedar Electronics is happy to announce the release of version 2.12 and version 1.12 firmware for its laser shifters. We have several minor improvements which have been made in this release which should continue to improve your experience with our laser shifters. This firmware update applies to:

  • Max Ci 360
  • Max Ci
  • iXCi
  • Max Ci Platform (relevant if shifters connected)
  • Max Ci International (relevant if shifters connected)
  • ZR5
  • ZW5
Enhancements:
  • Improved performance rear laser shifters (ports 3 & 4)
  • Fixed a laser gun identification bug
  • Improved overall jamming performance
How to tell the difference between version 2 and version 1 shifters

The version 1 shifters and bridge box were changed in the fall of 2018 due to an end of life component. The performance is the same as version 2. Version 2 shifters have a white stripe on the cable near the connector tip for the bridge box. Version 2 Bridge boxes have a white dot on the bottom. Your installer will be able to look at your install to determine which version you currently have.

How to Get the Update

For consumers, take your vehicle to an authorized Escort custom install installer. For installers, you can find the update on Detector Tools pro (https://www.escortradar.com/pages/update-your-device). There are two different links on the page depending on if you are using Windows or Mac OS.

@JSherbondy I have your ZW5's, version 2, and after the update they still say 1.1 - Is this correct?

My ZW5's also report 1.1 after updating and my Max Ci 360 is reporting 1.10 after updating. The Mark & Mute trick doesn't seem to be working at startup with the Max Ci to verify the firmware that way. I wonder if the jammers have updated successfully or not.

I just successfully updated according to Detector Tools pro but when I check the version it still says master version 1.0
Is this normal?

Typical Escort garbage. Tried to update the FW on my ZW5 jammers and followed the instructions to the tee. Still kept getting update failed. Now I am not even sure if they are working. Cannot wait to get rid of this garbage and buy a setup from a company that actually produces products that just work and are easy to update. Please post FAQ's around updates at least. Bush league.

So this is what I see on the back of my box… is there something else I need to take off as it does not seem to be a port for mini USB? Thanks.

I’d be happy if I could actually apply the first LIDAR update to the system in like 2 years…

FWIW I don’t know the answers since I haven’t even gotten a chance to try this update but the rear heads on my Ci 360 were definitely a bit more prone to close range PTs across most guns. Wondering if that is improved by this update.

Mine also shows 1.1 after supposed successful update. Makes one wonder. SMH.
