Are you running version firmware 1.8?
Versions prior to it seemed to have a bit more enhanced BSM rejection capability, especially as respects the rear antenna.
Hopefully Escort can tune it back a bit in the future. It had the best BSM I had ever experienced, so much so I got a second one shortly thereafter. Going to keep hoping for a retro-tweak.

Default My First Impressions

I just got the Max 360C today and I'm impressed, in a sort of weird way.

First, the display is MUCH better than the Max 360 or the Max2. I can leave it on "Auto" and it actually looks right for the conditions.
- Disclaimer: I bought a new Blendmount to go with it so maybe the new Blendmount isn't casting as much shade on it as the old one. Either way, the display looks a LOT better to me.

The WiFi connection: I actually put a hotspot (and $10/mo) into my car to do this but it's FAR better than using the Escort Live app. On my iPhone (gave it up about a year back) I remember being able to run the Live App in the background (I might be wrong on this) but I had to make sure it was connected. On my Android phone you can't just run it in the background (like I can with SO many other apps) and have it work. You actually have to have the app open and in the foreground for the data won't update. I eventually gave up on the app. The WiFi bit takes my phone out of the equation and it's a lot better. Now I wish my Garmin GPS (Yep, I used a Garmin GPS instead of a smart phone app - it's a lot better - this coming from a guy who used a smart phone app for nearly 10 years) used WiFi for traffic, weather, other updates/info..

The main thing is: Get my phone out from being the middleman on this stuff because it's kind of a pain.

The design of the Max 360c is more in line to what I expect (vs. the Max 360 which was a bit bulky).

I like the magnetic mount. That works WAY better than the Max 360's mount which was WAY better than the Max's mount (with that horribly placed release tab which was right next to bar holding everything up!).

Anyway, while I'm knocking Escort on many of their flaws, the Max 360c actually deserves a "good job", IMO.

I am glad you like the 360c. I had these same observations when I upgraded as well. Awesome detector!

just got the 360c today. went through the 8500 x50, iX, max 2, and now the 360c. I haven't been able to get the PSL to work on either bluetooth or wifi. I was able to update over wifi though. so its running fw 1.9.
question for escort, are the settings for escort live on the iPhone different from android? the video I saw of someone setting up the RD through escort live iPhone app seems to have extra settings that don't show up on the android app. using galaxy note 8 with android pie 9. also I can't get the detector completely level, its tilted to one side, if I try turning slightly it becomes pointed more to one side, not sure if that made any sense to you, but Im thinking its because of the curvature of my windshield. to adapt terms used to describe axis in flight, its rolled a little to the left, but when I correct this by twisting the mount, the yaw becomes pointed to the left, is pitch the only thing adjustable? how is everyone adjusting to the different curves of different windshields? previously you would bend the mounts, but the new mag mounts are plastic and unbendable, I think?

Congratulations on the MAX 360c!

Mount
There is no roll adjustment on the mount. We recommend mounting it in the center of the windshield which should result in no roll.

No Speed Limit Data
It is odd that you are not receiving speed limit data through bluetooth or Wi-Fi. A premium Escort Live account is required for this data so there may be an issue with your account. Please send me an email at buy@escortradar.com with your login email address and I will look into it.

Thank you

It is mounted in the center of windshield, maybe slightly favoring driver side, only because i would have to sit up in my seat to touch any of the buttons if it was any farther. I will attach a picture as soon as I figure out how, lol. And I also just emailed you what was requested.

You can undo the clip that secures the suction in place and move to left or right then lock it if you want to adjust that way also.

Sometimes you can also move it a hair to left or right without released the clip but I would recommend releasing it first you don't want to risk damaging your mount.
