Butcher -

I agree. It seems like the last 2 or 3 "new releases" were just remakes of previous detectors. Unless there's some substantial improvement, I don't see any value in those remakes. I...

The Coming Firmware Update

The max360 firmware update has been out for a while now. I've been wondering when the updates for the older Max series are coming out. I know I probably can't be given a date but I'm wondering if...

This is true but the difference isn't that great. If you want MAXIMUM sensitivity to K band, it's best to run highway mode.

When you run Auto mode, your sensitivity for K and X band is highest...

Are you saying you started having bad Ka response after the recent update or were you unhappy with the Ka range before the update?

It sounds like your detector needs to go in for a checkup. The...

Understatement it is! I too hope as many as possible came through the storm with little to no damage.

The fact that Escort is pausing to collect more information is very reassuring to me. It seems some people were surprised about how quiet their Max360 units became and that some range may have been...

Have you been able to measure a range reduction? I know you're saying you've got reduced range but can you quantify the reduction? Is it as much as Rolltide's?

Just to be clear - are you saying you're seeing a 30-40% range reduction with highway mode on and tsr off?

1) Does the filtering work in all modes (Highway/Auto/etc)?

2) Is the filtering independent of the TSR setting?

This is what I was referring to - what Escort says should happen. I agree that what we saw showed something different.

I am reserving judgement until Escort has a chance to comment.

For X and K bands, yes, Auto mode adjusts the sensitivity based on speed in detectors that have GPS. This shouldn't be news. It's explained in the users manual for your detector.
