Was it a defender database update or a unit firmware update?

It sounds like the Defender Update. I got one too (I have a 360c).

I've never received an email announcing a firmware update in all the years Escort has been around on any detector, only Defender.

here is the e mail i received from escort

Defender Database™ is the largest North American database of speed traps, speed cameras and red light cameras available for drivers today. Not only is it the largest database it is the
most up-to-date database, with weekly updates available for all of ESCORT's Internet
Ready, GPS-based Radar Detectors.

Please update your detector if you are located in the following states:



ALBERTA, ARIZONA, ILLINOIS, MARYLAND, NEW YORK, RHODE ISLAND, TENNESSEE.

To update your unit with this latest information, please use your Detector Tools program. To update your ESCORT GPS product just connect it to a PC or Mac running Detector Tools and begin updating!

Updating either firmware or Defender via Wi-Fi is the same as using Detector Tools.

The Defender update email only goes to users registered in the affected states.

We only send firmware update emails for critical issues. One was sent earlier this year.
