Default ZW5 and Escort Ixc

So I have installed my zw5 shifters and according to the spec sheet it should be compatible with the IXC detector. So I have the detector plugged into the new smart cord that supposed to communicate with the zw5. How do I know if it's actually connected to it and where in the world do I find the JTK settings. Doesn't show up in the android app or any choices in the preferences on the detector. Or am I out of luck.

I'm not familiar with the IXC (I have the Redline 360c and the Max3) but when you power up your vehicle and your detector powers on you will hear a double beep and the detector will say "laser shifters shift" letting you know they are detected/connected (this can take 3-7 seconds as it's not always immediate).

The JTK settings are through the detector.

I see the message laser shifters shift but there is no jtk settings on the detector or within the app, which tells me they have not provided an update for the ixc. I did use the support tool and it said I had the latest firmware. So unless they come up with new firmware I'm SOL with jtk.

Your thoughts are my best recollection of where JTK stands on the iXc as I could not find a post confirming that it was added to its firmware as it was for the other compatible models.
