This doesn't indicate if I can update my Escort MAX II from my Mac computer using the update tool! That's my questions. I guess I can give it a try...

The original post specifically says that the Mac version of DT can update your Max 2. Have you downloaded the latest version

Default Mac Update rendered my 9500ix inoperative

I downloaded the Mac 2.4.9 Detector Tools and I plugged in my unit, the panel on the detector said USB as usual and it connected and I clicked to start to download, to error panels appeared "firmware Updated of your 9500ix FAILED" and "Error updating your 9500ix, Update 1 of 2 failed".
The USB light went out and the unit scene was blank.
When I plugged it back into the car the unit would not go on and made a clicking noise.

What happened, how can I fix this ?
is there an override.
Did the download kill the unit ?

I have a Mac and in the past, I have updated at my daughters house with windows.
I have the latest Mac version High Sierra 10.13.1
Please advise,

I grabbed my 9500ix and connected it to my MBP (also running High Sierra 10.13.1). I launched the Mac version of DT (v2.4.9), and it recognized the 9500ix. I was warned that my Defender DB license had expired, but I clicked the green button and the firmware was downloaded in steps and it installed without issues.

I don't know what happened in your situation, sorry to say.

UPDATE: what are the first two digits of the serial number on your 9500ix? By any chance, are they "33"?

No it starts with 22.
I called and got thru to the Company.
I needed to hold the Mark and Bright button down while plugging in the usb cable.
It restarted, it downloaded all the upgrades but it needed to upload all the locations, 3 hours later it is still updating, we live in Texas.

The reset is good to know, hopefully it will download all the locations and not crash.

If the update did not successfully complete, use a different USB port or a different USB cable. The updates should only take a few minutes to perform.
