I went up to several different door openers and couldn't find a full blast radar, I'll keep checking for one and reply back when I do.

Thank you! I have a CVS and a smaller grocery store that I visit that will cause this to happen, but those are the only places to trip this event so far - and I have to park in the front row to make it happen.

I remember this being an issue back years ago when the Max was first introduced but this should have been fixed years ago actually. Not sure what is going on.

I bought a Bushnell Radar Gun to 'play' with to test this further. I can get the unit to sleep indefinitely now if I just fire it out the window away from the 360 before start up. I can go back 10 minutes later and trigger the radar gun again the the 360 is still silent. It will do this every single time.

That being said if you wait just a few seconds until the 360's 'splash screen' disappears and trigger it right as the screen switches to 'highway', then wait about 20 seconds or so, it will alert when done with the internal boot process and work as it should from then on.

Something during those 1st few seconds of boot up, if there is a strong K source, will cause it to sleep until it is restarted. You can't tell the door openers to not operate for a few seconds after starting your vehicle though, ha!

Ok, at this time this is as good as it as has gotten for me. I found a Best Buy door radar operating on K band, but signal strength no matter how I moved around was at the most 5 bars out of 6 (apx 85% of max signal) on spec display. I still tried to get mine to malfunction by restarting it several times at different angles (still 5 bars, 10 to 20' from door) however mine seems to not be affected and works normal. Like I said before ser # is 85---- but I did notice it's update is v 1.5 so I need to update it to the v 1.6 or whats current. Thats all for now but after I update it, I will remain on the lookout for a full blast K band opener and report back. It's been a long night so time to get a few hours sleep (4:12am) , til next time....
