My money's on #1. And it's going to take a heck of an effort from Escort to get me interested in anything they make from here on out.

Escort has gone, in fairly quick succession, from the Max ->...

Looks like a notification that the police use an airplane to check speed in that area. It's provided by the internal Defender database, much like any other warning (red light or speed camera, common...

Generally. The horn is pointed away from your own sensors. And not every vehicle has K band sensors for the collision avoidance. The real trouble spots seem to be GM and Honda products and the new...

I'm sure it's coming, but wow. IIRC, they had originally said it would be ready in October.

They won't go away... they're just being referred to as a power outlet now.

IMO, automakers and vehicle accessory makers desperately need to come up with a new plug-in standard. Something much...

Will both see radar behind you?

Yes. Radar bounces around a lot, so even a single front facing horn will get a peek at radar that's originating from behind you. Now, a second horn facing the rear...

Max is a good detector.

The arrows on the 360 are really nice- I went from a Max to a 360 and it would be hard to go back. Not only does it have the IVT rejection firmware, but the arrows give...

Yes.

Some tints and other coatings (so it's not just OEM windshields, some aftermarket tints can have this too) can be rather opaque to radar waves (and other electromagnetic radiation). While...

They say the update improves the Max/2 to 360 levels. Owning a 360, I can tell you the IVT filtering is incredible. It's not all powerful (still some punch throughs at close range), but I'm not...

It's not unusual to have police move from the reported location before you get there. Live alerts can be fairly stale with not much way to know how recent they were beyond the setting "show alerts...

If you're not running one of the more recent firmware builds a strong K band hit can bleed into a Ka band alert, so I'd make sure you have the most recent version first of all.

I found the fix worked with mine as well. Looks like this one's been solved. So, how long is it going to take for the tantrum throwers to apologize to Escort for their whining...

iOS 11.0.2 involved some fixes for crackling BT audio.

Apple did mess with BT functionality in 11... my wife's Fitbit has quit talking to her phone as well, so it's not just Escort.

Can be.

But it's not limited to just Escort Live products. My wife's Fitbit also won't connect to her phone (iPhone 8, iOS 11), and that tells me that it likely is Apple who went mucking around...

If only the FCC would say "X and K bands are no longer authorized for speed measurement devices." Then come down on anybody using Ka for any unlicensed operation.

Beats me. I run the same settings and found punch through are very rare and only at very short ranges- Acura and Hondas would alert at hundreds of yards before the update.

I'm interested in knowing how it does with the Honda/Acura/Chrysler Pacifica falses in the 24.200 range. I'll be updating mine this afternoon.
