Thumbs down Sadly I値l have to continue to look elsewhere

I wanted to love this thing.

Arrived today & during setup the video wouldn稚 show on the app! Kept getting this damn 擢ailed to connect to Cam live stream, something to that effect.

I brought it inside to PC to maybe update FW, that also didn稚 workout well. But I did see the recordings on PC, just not on the app. (Yes I have Tmobile).

Lastly since I use Blendmount, I have my Max360 swiveled towards driver view, so I can see the face of the detector better. So the camera would only capture half of the view of the road. Since it doesn稚 point straight (not the cams fault).

Either way, sending this thing back ASAP.

I was attracted to idea of not running cables... but I値l have to settle for another cam & deal with sloppy cables.

Not having the detector pointed straight ahead and level is going to negatively impact performance, especially for oncoming LEOs and LEOs behind you. Can you adjust the Blendmount so the detector is closer to the windshield and pointing straight ahead?

New electronics are complex, a good read of the owners manual and checking setting would probably have solved your issue. As just stated, you cannot turn your detector like that because you will effect performance in a negative way.

This is placing you at a disadvantage when detecting radar or laser from LEOs. Don't do this.

Speaking for me, I use a BM along with my 360c and M1. I like the combination very much, but I use an iPhone instead of an Android.

Sorry to hear you are returning the M1. Putting your phone into airplane mode should help with viewing videos on the M1 app on T-Mobile phones.

Updating the M1's firmware only involves copying the firmware .bin file to your M1's root directory (do not put it in a folder) and restarting M1. After about 30 seconds of the red light flashing, the M1 should beep and the green light should appear.

Radar is directional. Not having your detector aimed forward is reducing detection range. I strongly recommend having it aimed forward.

It sounds like you would enjoy the benefits that a custom installed detection system offers.
