Default Redline 260C and Defender Database

Will the detector update via wifi with the Defender Database? Do I need to activate it somehow?

Thanks!

David

Yes defender updates are usually sent out on Monday or Tuesday, and you will get this prompt automatically if you are using wifi and the auto update is turned on.

My RL360c has NOT updated the defender data for the past two weeks. Has anyone else had this happen to them?? I deleted & reinstalled all the software on my phone and in my car thinking that something may have gone wrong with the software. Still no defender update. Has there been an update from Escort the past two weeks??

I have not received any updates for the past few weeks either.

Me neither. I did notice that the official Defender Update Listings Thread has not been updated since March 2, 2020.

Does everybody have inactive Defender subscription? I updated mine on Tuesday using Detector Tools.

There are so many variables and issues involving WiFi I would only update using Detector Tools. Call me old fashioned or it's use being inconvenient but it always works.

My detector tools subscription is good till 2025 so for me that's not the problem. I tried to update my RL360c on my computer and the firmware button is working but the data update is grayed out & will not work.
First thing we need to know is their an update available for the past two weeks. I can't remember when Escort did not have an update for their defender data base.
I hope this is the case and nothing is wrong with the detector.

I just tried a manual USB-DTP update and it was successful.
It loaded the 10/19/2020 Defender Database
