Default Power on to update?

Do I need to power on my Max II to update the firmware of just plug in the USB and run the Escort Detector Tools?

Another words does it have to have it's power connected, as it will not find my Detector on my Mac with Catlina installed, withe eh updated Detector Tools i just downloaded from he website..

I figured i better update as my detector show bluetooth connected to my iPhone X yet the Escort app shows no connection to my Detector..is my original problem

Make sure you connect to detector using BT through the app.

I always used the older style USB before and it worked, does it have to have a special USB besides the older style?, it shows up quick on the Detector Tools as Max 2 blinks off then says cannot connect to your device...

Not sure what you mean by "older style"?? It should be same cable youv'e always used.

Restart your PC, and reinstall DT fresh.

It would just be the regular USB. If it fits well and everything it should be the right cable to transfer the data.
