If it only updated Bluetooth, why am I picking up Mazda's now when I did not get a false around them before?

Default Recent Mazda CX-5 experience

I have an up-to-date, original MAX that is normally used in my older Volvo w/optical BLIS system and stays pretty quiet, falsing around the typical Acuras, etc. with the newer IVT systems. However, this weekend I took it with me on a Midwest college tour starting in Chicago, back east to Ann Arbor, down to Purdue and back to Chicago over several days. Several hours of driving each day. It just so happens that I rented a brand new Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring for the trip and it was like my trusty MAX started losing its mind as soon as I drove off the lot.

It seemed that it would false alert passing every single semi truck and large vehicle, and I passed a LOT of them during the whole trip! Drove me nuts. It was practically unusable. I figured most trucks on the Midwest highways must be using new radar-based blind spot warning systems - until it finally hit me halfway through the trip. It was the MAZDA’s blind spot radar that must have been reflecting off of passing vehicles and setting off my MAX. Ugh! And to think that I was thinking of buying a new car soon. Maybe even a CX-5. PLEASE tell me the coming IVT filtering update will solve this issue!?…

Or will my Escort radar detectors soon became a fond memory of the past?

Default Lockout Option Suggestion

Here’s a suggestion that might help with these new car IVT issues - Simply add a new Lockout option that records the signal frequency/signature and ignores the GPS location. That way you could “train” your detector to ignore the radar transmissions from your own car(s). Granted, it leaves you open to legit radar sources using the same frequency/signature, but would be better than shutting down the entire K-band. Would this work?...

I don't think we will ever see an update with IVT filtering.
It's took forever just to get the Bluetooth working correctly on Apple phones.
