Exclamation MAX 360 updated to v1.6/1.3

MAX 360 with Bluetooth Classic (serial number beginning with 79) has been updated to firmware v1.6

and

MAX 360 with Bluetooth Smart/BLE (serial number beginning with 85) has been updated to firmware v1.3

with the following changes:
- IVT Filter has been updated for enhanced false alert rejection against radar based In-Vehicle Technology (aka CAS, BSM)
- Resolved an issue with false alerts not storing correctly. You do not need to clear your lockouts for this fix to take effect. It will take several passes by false alerts that were not storing correctly for them to be re-learned and stored correctly

Wonderful news. Congratulations on achieving something I know you've been working on for a while. You guys deserve a pat on the back.

For those of us who couldn't afford more than one antenna, any predictions about the arrival of the updates for the Max I and Max II???

Updating mine now!

I saw Vortex's YouTube blurb on the Max 360 update, and he states that, if the update puts the Max 360 BSM filtering on par with the Max 360 Ci, then it should be one of the best overall detectors on the market, if not THE best. I agree.

Looking forward to doing some driving with my 360 to see how it does against the Pacificas (they seem to be the worst), Acuras, GMs, etc.

Thanks Escort!

Thank you!! ... initial run from WV to DC was MUCH improved. I only got 3 potentials falses, 2 were the same source, around 24.160, and I don't know for sure if they were BSM, stationary, or real LE yet.

HUGE improvement!

Thanks!!
Quick question, does the v1.6 firmware update reset all settings back to factory defaults?

Can't wait to update mine as soon as I get home.

Thanks, I realized it as soin as I updated mine. I think I'll leave it this way for a while before making any changes.

Can someone post a link for the 1.6 update? I went to the Detector Tools link in one of the Vortex videos and it gave me v1.5. Thanks!

You'll have to download the latest version of Detector Tools for your platform before it will load the new firmware.

After the update, you must restart the detector before it will show you the newly installed firmware version when holding down the MUTE and MRK buttons.
