Default Max with low serial # question

Hi,
I have a low serial # 58xxxxxxxx Max. I down loaded the firmware and the latest firmware. I bought it around 2013 - 2014 I think. Did it get the same updates back when I down loaded the firmware then ?






Thanks, Shiri

FIRMWARE
The latest firmware update for the older MAX was released in July 2018. It is version number 1.12. Just hold down both the Mark & Mute button as you power on the MAX and it will display the version currently on it. If you just updated the firmware now it is different from what you had back then.

I had a MAX serial 58 *** and the latest firmware did not install correctly when I used the green Update Software button in Detector Tools (DT), even though it reported the the current version was installed. The RD worked but not as well as prior to the update. I had to reinstall it using the "Update All Software" command under the Advanced Tab in DT rather than the green Software Update button. Others experienced this too. If your firmware update took only seconds then it is a sign that it did not work properly. If it took minutes then it's probably OK,

DEFENDER DATABASE
The latest defender Database is dated 2/4/1019 and shows up on the computer screen after a Merge is performed with Detector Tools.

You are OK. You do not need to download every update before. The latest software available (both firmware and database) includes all of the previous changes.
