Default IXC or max3

Which gives the most bang for the buck IXC or max 3? I'm interested in IVT to filter unwanted signals. I'm leaning towards the IXC (especially since it's currently on sale), but now the max 3 is available. Any thoughts ?

Thanks.

The Max 3 has a few additional features like the new K notch to help eliminate false alerts from BSMs. Also it has the JTK feature for the ZR5 - ZW5 if you use shifters and would like that.

MAX 3 - way better IVT filtering and seemingly better range.

My debate is between MAX 3, Redline 360c and a different brand.

As the others have said, between the two choices, MAX3 (unless wifi connectivity is a necessity).

Well John (CTO) just laid out a new update for the Max3 coming in 2-3 weeks. Lets see if the ramp up issue is addressed. Looking good so far.

Frankly, I'm encouraged with the recent engagements from Cedar.

It should be a simple matter, but they need to tweak the MAX 3 K band Auto Mode filter in its next update. I see it has good results otherwise in its initial distance testing by others.

Can they tweak ERF so members here can get a peak at those initial distance testing results as well, please?
