Default Do I leave the smartcord plugged in while updating via USB?

Does the USB mini B cord provide enough power for the Max 360? Or do I leave the power cord plugged in as well?

Am I supposed to use a USB 3.0 port, or will USB 2.0 be ok?

Thanks

Just the USB cord when updating, do not plug in the 12v power cord when updating.

USB 2.0 port is fine.

Make sure you are using a USB A to mini B data cable, some USB cables only supply power.

Download Detector Tools HERE.

Install Detector Tools on your computer.

Do not connect to 12Vdc power when updating.
Connect your Max 360 to your PC or Mac using a USB A to mini B data cable (not included) and update it using Escort Detector Tools.

The lower green button is for updating the firmware (software) of your detector. If it informs you that your software (firmware) is already current then I do not advise to force it to update.

How do I check the current serial number and software (firmware) version on my MAX 360?
To view your ESCORT Max 360ís serial number and software revision, press MRK and MUTE (remember "M & M") while powering on the detector.

The cable I have does high speed data along with simultaneous charging. So hopefully my first update will go well.
