If you are running those together you could get interference and even cause your R-EX to go off due to some leaking signal from the Max360.....

Thanks kasher , i understand they can conflict with each other , max with rex on leakage but they seem fine , only conflict i have noticed was booting the max up aiming towards the rex during set up , all else seems fine ! When both mounted no triggers , after all i love testing things out !! Even if i break sh*t !!! And get another ticket , hell ive had so many whats a few more !! Got 1 on fridge now for no seat belt !!

If you are haveing the same issues then yes , or u can wait for mine to get bk to me and ill let u know the results !! Mind u its about a 3 wk turnard then a wk or less of testing although the sound should be noticeably louder out the box !! Plus ka band runs 24/7 across the st from me !!! Police station !!

Kinda funny ,that now there is a update to 1.5 , to control the false laser triggers , how about would it restore the volume bk ? Guess i would not know since i sent it in for this repair , i have to say so far i havent been impressed at all with all the trouble this new device has had , one thing i have learned ill stick to what works till the problems work there self out before i buy another new item , looks like escort has its hands full with bugs !! Sadly this makes me want to jump ship to other brands !!

I am not hearing anywhere else about lower volume after this update.

Updating will many times reset the detector back to its factory default settings. If you changed the volume level then you will need to change it again using the + and - buttons.

Also, could it be your AutoMute volume that is too low for you (the volume it lowers to after the first few seconds of an alert)? If so, you can change the AutoMute volume level, or disable it entirely, in the detector's preferences menu.

my auto mute is disabled and my volume is turned all the way up. When it alerts me me red light camara etc it's really low other than that it's OK oh minus the laser falses but 1.5 I guess should have changed that I'll see
