One thing to watch out for is the power sequencing for updating the Max Ci. I found it a little bit tricky.

The Max Ci system will not jam unless you are moving faster than 25mph. If you try the test at speed, you'll see that it will go into Shifting mode.

I can confirm. The only time I've seen laser falses was when being tailgated very closely by a LIDAR-sporting Mazda. But most of my observations of that were with v1.0. I suspect that must've been...

Thatís what I was thinking too, but sure enough, my system also updated from 1.1 to 1.3. Hopefully when EscortRadar comes online our curiosity can be satisfied :)

The latter behavior on Acuras is pretty similar to how IVT works on the Max Ci 360 in my experience. Auto mode appears to have additional filtering at all speed ranges compared to Highway, and it can...

If you want to look for "falses" to reassure you that the shifter is at least receiving, you may have better luck with a remote control. Those shoot pulses of IR and some of them can be confused with...

A false of 35.842 likely means your Jeep uses the same radar sensor as Tesla (Bosch MRR4). Turning off segment 10 or both segments 9 and 10 will make the false alerts go away.

Just to confirm: Are you opening the Escort Live app to pair? These BTLE devices never appear in the Settings -> Bluetooth list until you initially pair using the app itself.
