Thumbs up Just saying

I don't believe for a moment that Escort is ignoring its customers.


A really old saying is - 'Don't worry, things will get worse'

This much I do know with full certainty. The firmware updates for the Max and Max II are looming.

Let me ask which is better? Do you want it "right" or do you want it "right now"? I realize the cliche is old, but I think that it applies in this consideration.

I want to see the firmware updates, too, because I own every member of the Max family. The update for the Max 360 has been spectacular, and that's why I'm waiting for the updates for my other Maxes as well.

The updates are coming. I promise.
If they're working so hard - why they didn't do nothinh on Max International version? We got bunch of fake promises from them! That' s all what they were able to deliver! They're far away from a good brand. Escort was the best - but now ... well I'm not sure ...

Default Updates on Bluetooth connectivity issues?

We are looking into resolutions and working with Apple about this. Should we be able to resolve this through updates on our end then we will.

Could you please provide updates on when will the Bluetooth connectivity issues will be resolved with the Max2 radar detector w/firmware 1.7....using iOS 11.2.1 on iPhone 6.

What is it exactly that Apple did that broke down the connectivity with the radar detector? How do you plan to fix it? Firmware update? or do you need to change something in the hardware? This product had been working fine until this Bluetooth issue came up after the iOS update...

you're probably better off just selling it and buying a new model to get support... days turns into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into never.

The bluetooth issue is fixed with the latest firmware update on the Max 2. I have no other issues with bluetooth since I updated (iOS 11.2 on iPhone X).

You are incorrect. An update is coming for MAX and MAX 2/II.

Not yet.

We are busy with the MAX 360 alert lock-up reports. That should be resolved very soon, a week or so, then we will continue work on the MAX and MAX 2 IVT Filter update. Much of the code is the same between these detectors so I expect testing to go well with the MAX and MAX 2, but you never really know until you do it.
