I appreciate the response, itís better to keep the cummincation open and more frequent if possible. I know this is a tough problem, itís very random and difficult to replicate in real world driving. My only guess is there was incorrect code somewhere written in 1.6/1.3 and itís been carried over to newest fw. Please keep us informed.

Default Lockups

Has there been a resolution to this issue? I am looking at upgrading from my Max 2, but I donít want to buy something with a known issue.

i just ordered one. should get delivered tomorrow. didn't know about the lockup issue until now. i understand these glitches happen and eventually get worked out. however...i'd rather not be involved in the R&D process myself.

been an escort fan since the beginning/late 70's. can hang on to my 9500ix a bit longer if things aren't sorted out yet.

has the issue been resolved?

Itís sporadic - I donít seem to experience this issue as much as most on this forum.

FYI - the disconnect issue seems to be slowly fading away with each iOS 12 beta update.

If you just got a max360 youíll be happy with it. These issues may be annoyances but does not stop me from enjoying it.

I'm really no expert on this issue, however I have a Max 360 with a serial number starting with 85 (the newer model) and I've used every firmware update to current and have never had the lockup issue. I use EL about 50% of the time. So not sure if it's hardware, hardware + firmware, h/w, f/w app? No idea. But I've been lucky.

Updated, range is not near what it was before! I backed this thought up by putting my 9500ix in the same vehicle. 9500ix is blowing the max out of the water!!!! This is not what I paid for! E mail sent last night to Escort requesting a call to discus resolve or refund.

Two detectors together will cause interference this is not a valid test.

The 9500ix May indeed get better range on false alerts because it can not filter and tell the difference like the Max can. What kind of tests are you doing that is indicating to you that the 9500ix is better? What is the radar source?
