I have experienced though, where the EL app hasn't always worked right following update to either the EL app or IOS
This, I have most often fixed by "starting clean"; meaning: 1) delete the EL app and 2)"forget the Bluetooth connection" for the 360 in iPhone settings, then re-install and attempt to reconnect.
If the above does not solve your problem, I would try connecting with a different iPhone and if the issue still exists, then a call to Escort Customer Service
Good Luck

I can try that. I had similar issues with my iPhone X, and after upgrading to the new 11 Pro, it's worse.

So I'll delete everything from the phone and start over.

Tried, still same problem.
Odd thing is that sometimes it will connect after 10mins after all...

I had the same problem with my Max 360 using my Samsung S3. It used to work when I used it last year so when I decided to go to the EL app again I could not get the 360 to connect no matter what I tried. Well at this point it doesn't matter because I'm selling my Max 360 (which I've had since 2017) and upgrading to the Max 360c. I just ordered it last night because all of a sudden Escort (and other retailers) took $100 off the price. The buttons were all worn down on the top of the unit so it was time for something new!

You will like the 360c better I believe. I have liked mine better than the older 360. Quality of the unit is superb, and it's smaller too. Enjoy!

This is strange. I don't recall hearing this happen before. If it happens with another phone then there is probably an issue with the detector, requiring it to be serviced.

The BT icon in EL will flash rapidly, actually.
As soon as I launch EL, the BT icon will appear on the Max360. Then either the BT icon on EL goes blue after a second or so, or it starts flashing rapidly in white.
When it goes blue, a second or 2 later I'll see the BT icon on the Max360 change to the white background with speed limit display. Otherwise, the Max360 will just show the BT logo.

I'm using Detector Tools on the Mac to manage my Max360. I keep up to date with new firmware (Is there a way to be notified of those?) by updating it once a month. Is there a setting I should make in the Max360 that is advisable for BT?

The only Bluetooth setting available is the Bluetooth Delay Setting (only available when the detector is connected to the app). If your car is connecting to your phone when it starts then setting this to 5 or 10 seconds may help.

So, the first time after resetting everything (Remove + reconnect BT, also delete and re-install EL), it wouldn't connect.

But since then, it seems to be working quite well!

Bluetooth is a problem for sure. When new, my 360c connected to my iPhone XR perfectly. After installing zw5 and updating, it would no longer connect. After lengthy troubleshooting and call to escort, sent it in for warranty service. It was also plagued with rear ka false alerts. Came back a week later; no more false alerts, but still no Bluetooth connect to my iPhone. For the hell of it, I tried it with my iPad Pro, and what do you know, connected right up! Settings on the iPhone and iPad are identical, as is all the software. Go figure.
