Default Serial #

Have your Serial Number ready when you call. It will speed up the order process. Even if you did buy Direct.

Is this just a map update or does it include firmware updates too?

Default Maps

Only a guess but I would say just map and speed limit updates. Larry(Escort) is out next week. Don't know what days, you will need to wait unless a co-worker can answer. Otherwise call Escort on Monday and ask.

Although I guess that the development of firmware updates is definitively stopped, I hope that if a new update came out it would be available through Detector Tools

What else is included? Or is it just a speed limit info update for $30
There has to be more than that!

I asked because the last update they sent out on the sd card included a firmware update along with what I thought was a map update too.

No problem

The microSD Card sent always contains full application and latest maps available.
When you start the update process there's a check for installed versions :

=> if your firmware wasn't up-to-date with Detector Tools : then the software will be updated.
=> if you didn't have the latest maps : they're automatically refreshed with the latest version.

I guess in your case that your iQ had not been updated with DT before

Is there something I/we should infer from this statement? Should I put any thoughts of ever buying one out of my mind?

Default Not Ready to ship

Not quite true. I ordered my Map Update a few minutes after Larry posted that they were available. Yet the order does not show on their (Escorts) system a week later. I do understand that they need to make the update only work on my IQ serial#. But it seems that these Update SD cards are all walked through Escorts system manually. As customer service can not easily find your order till it ships. It does seem that a weeks time would be adequate to prepare and ship,and it is an uneasy feeling that you can not track it from your account.

The map update includes updated speed limit data.
