If you are not using another detector in the car with your RedLine then it needs to be serviced. Detecting a signal that is obviously not present is a big deal.

I just replied to another thread of yours where you mentioned the same issues. It sounds like you are using a Max 360 and a RedLine with a SmartCord Live cord in the same car at the same time. Both devices are trying to pair with your smartphone which may have caused a device activation issue (the "invalid user agent" message in the Escort Live app). I advise un-pairing the detector that you aren't using from your phone until you get your Max 360 operating without you seeing the "invalid user agent" message in the app. If you continue to see this message then, while you have access to the detector and Escort Live app, please call our service department at the number in my signature below.

Our products offer much more than they ever have before so there is more of a learning curve when you first use them. For instance, Escort Live is the only app providing connected radar detectors with speed limit data, user reported alerts, and camera locations (and storing locked out false alerts on your RedLine). Other apps are simple detector interfaces.

Once your Max 360 is properly activated on Escort Live then I think you will find Escort Live is quite easy to use. Remember that your Max 360's display will show everything that you need to know from Escort Live. You don't need to see your phone when using it so you don't need to mount it. On iPhone you can leave the app running non-stop in the background and the iPhone will shut it down a few minutes after it loses connection with the detector. I use iPhone and rarely ever have to open or close Escort Live. It just works automatically with my detectors (we are trying to get to this level with Android phones too). And Escort Live also has a ton of options to adjust what you are being alerted to.

Can this be overwhelming? Definitely at first. But it doesn't take long to understand it and how it all works together. I'm the same age as you and I figured it out so I'm pretty sure that anyone can if they take a little time with it
I do not "DO NOT" use 2 detectors in the same car at the same time... My issue is and remains the distance or lack of with my 360.. I agree it is an awesome looking detector but I guess after owning the now late RL the alert distance is dismal at best. I shut TSR and K band off trying to squeeze out more distance and it has worked but not by much... I am probably one of the few, but all the options are meaningless to me.. All i care about is distance, distance between the cop and me.. I can lock out my own k band false's. I drive a 500 horse power car, i need distance...

The V-1 i ordered needs extensive setup within the app, this sort of interaction doesn't bother me at all.. I like the gadgets and playing with the operation of the detector.. I just want range.. Range, Range, Range...

Also I've been on live for well over a year.. Live doesn't do me any good really.. I live in VA and there really aren't any other alerts.. In the 14 months i have been on live Ive never seen another alert from another user in VA. I'm sure there out there somewhere but I've never seen one.

A properly operating Max 360 is not lacking on detection range as others here have overwhelmingly expressed.

Detectors are illegal in VA, which is probably why you aren't seeing much activity on Escort Live. And of windshield mounts only the RedLine is stealth to radar detector detectors.

Yep well aware of all of that, which is why i said that i don't have any live hits because I live in VA.. Thanks for the news flash.. As i stated before I've been using RD's for 20 years.. No more correspondence is necessary my V-1 has arrived... Your 360 is now taking up space in my desk drawer..

In VA only 2% of State Troopers have Radar Detector Detectors VG-2's and Spectres, the odds of getting stopped for that are slim to none, further more the ticket for a RD is $35.00 + cost which is about 60 bucks and no points.. Thanks for the sermon, you let me worry about the laws I'm violation i let you worry about producing a product that works properly and is worth buying.. I purchased and 360 3 weeks ago and sent it back the next day for the one i have now, i am so impressed by your product I spend another 500.00 buck for a V-1.. you tell me do I sound satisfied with the 360's awesome range? hummm
