You guys made my detector useless now
If you have an original MAX and used the green "Software Update" button in DT you can try updating it again using the "Update all Software" under the "Advanced" Tab in DT. I had an issue with my original MAX using only the green software update button. You cannot go back to a prior version.

There was no change to Ka band detection in this firmware update.
If it continues to detect X and K falses from door openers, etc as it did before then it is most probably operating as it should. You may just have not encountered Ka band on this particular trip.

It is not possible to install previous versions of firmware.

If you would like to have it serviced, please contact our customer service department at the number in my signature below.

Im a trucker and i will update you guys as i go thru different states and highways...

But i can assure you that something changed with KA band detection after the update...
I passed at least 10 roadside trooper and law enf. But not a single alert yet...
Either they ALL didnt have it on or this thing is not working...

How do i know?
I had the other bands turned off and was running KA band only before the update and now i turned ON all the bands and i barely pick a false alert on K Band....


I was happy with the previous version of it but i updated the device like an idiot.
Now i have to send it to you guys for repair and pay almost 150$..?


Dodge that!

You should notice a huge reduction in false alerts on K band after the update, particularly from vehicles, but detection of police radar (regardless of the band) is unaffected.

I assure you that there is a significant reduce on KA band alerts and it came to a point that it miss 3 out of 5 KA band alert.

I have 2 Passport Max2 units and the one i didnt update is much more reliable than the updated unit...
Im only running KA band active on both units and the updated unit cant catch most of them...

I wonder if anyone else having the same problem as me but i will send this updated unit to you guys so you can see yourself.

The new update fixed the Bluetooth problem but it didnt worth to lose KA band

If you are running both units at the same time that will cause them to miss alerts. Radar detectors emit radar-like emissions which confuse other nearby detectors.

Nobody is reporting units missing Ka radar after this update. You are welcome to search the forum for yourself.

If you like, we can service your detector. To set this up, please call us at the number in my signature below.

If it was me and I felt that strong of a concern I would have Escort look at your unit.

I will sell the updated one and keep the old version so that will solve my problem for now.
