Default Detector Tools Pro, v2.1.7 Works with VMWare on OSX

Confirmed. Just updated my MAX CI 360 on Mac. Running VMware version Pro 8.5.8, running Windows 7 Pro. You must make sure you follow the cycle down procedure without the CI connected to the USB. When the power is off, you will be able to update to 1.1.

Wanted to confirm: These Tesla falses are definitely gone. The Max360Ci now is almost entirely free of Ka band falses and is working wonderfully. Good range on every 34.7 encounter I've had so far, and the arrows are simply awesome.

The only things I have to add are:

- I've seen a single 33.75x false. Like in 1000 miles of driving. That's pretty awesome, but I have almost never gotten 33.8 falses on my Max360, so I'm wondering if there's any RDR improvements that are left on 33.8. Now that I'm using Ka band more, I'll collect more information on whether or not this is a frequent occurrence, but right now it's extreeemely rare and a huge improvement over other extreme range Ka detectors I've tested. When the Max360Ci goes off on Ka band, my mind thinks it's a real alert before I even look at the frequency.

- It seems like there may be some tweaks to "Auto" mode in this build. BSM filtering is still as good as ever, but it seems like it's alerting to a few more speed signs and lockouts have expanded a bit for a few of the speed signs as well. Previously in 1.0, it almost seems like it was completely rejecting certain K band transmitters especially when it was in pairs (e.g. speed signs on both directions of a road). Now, this behavior seems addressed and I'm seeing even more reliable K-band alerting that makes sense against stationary sources.

Disabling narrow segments is a tool to use to help eliminate false alerts. For instance, eliminating the Ka falsing which some Tesla owners are experiencing. Due to it's extreme sensitivity, MAX Ci detects a faint harmonic from certain Tesla Auto Pilot transceivers which falls in the upper Ka range (a frequency range not used by police radar). Disabling Ka Narrows 9 and 10 eliminates these false alerts.
Same issues with 2017+ Porsche Panamera. Disable 9 and 10 solves the false alerts
