Exclamation Detector Tools for Apple Mac updated to 2.4.17

Detector Tools for Apple Mac has been updated to 2.4.17 with the following changes:

- Corrects an issue on MAX 360c and MAX 360c International models which could cause a "Check FR" error code. If you continue to get a Check FR error message after updating using Mac Detector Tools 2.4.17, then use the Manual Updates/Update Firmware menu option at the top of the Mac Detector Tools screen.


Note that Detector Tools will not auto-update. You will need to remove the old Detector Tools and install the new Detector Tools

Both the email I just got from Escort & its web site show the new MAC version as 2.4.16. Please advise. . .

I just checked, the website at the top shows 2.4.16, but the actual download link gives you the file for 2.4.17, I just downloaded it, and it works. The text at the top of the page needs to be updated, but the file is there...

Good to know. The email from Escort also inadvertently referred to 2.4.16.

Running this app with an Escort 9500IX... and it is painfully slow. I don't know just how large the data base has gotten over the years, but spending over an hour in the car to update this database is really not worth my time.

It seems "Reading Locations" and "Uploading Locations" take > 20 minutes for each function.

It should not take that long. Something is slowing down the data transfer. A different USB cable may help. And be sure to plug it directly into the Mac (do not use a hub).
