This week Escort is releasing firmware updates for their 360-series radar detectors including the Max 360c, Max 360, Beltronics GT-360, and Cobra DualPro 360. This latest update fixes several important issues.
In this update, there are 3 primary fixes:
- Improvements to product stability (hopefully finally fixing the lockup bug)
- Resolved issue causing rear false Ka alerts under certain conditions
- Reduced laser false alerts
This is the third update for the Max 360c to help resolve the lockup bug. Hopefully this latest update (firmware 1.10) fully resolves the issue.
The previous 360c update, 1.9, introduced some occasional rear Ka falses that could be addressed with Ka band segmentation as well as a bunch of laser falses (I got about 1-2 per hour). This latest update should help alleviate these radar and laser false alert issues.
AutoJTK support with the ZR5 and ZW5 laser shifters is not part of this update and will hopefully be added in a future update.
Here’s the latest firmware versions for each detector:
- Escort Max 360c: 1.10
- Escort Max 360: 1.11 (if serial starts w/ 79)
- Escort Max 360: 1.8 (if serial starts w/ 85)
- Beltronics GT-360: 1.3
- Cobra DualPro 360: 1.1
You can update your detectors using Escort Detector Tools Pro, Beltronics Detector Tools Pro, or Cobra Detector Tools Pro.

I updated to 1.10 and now my 360C is not picking up any radar. In fact I got a radar based ticket today and never knew I got shot. Frustrating to say the least. I was really enjoying the lack of false alarms, too bad I didn’t realize I was not getting any alarms.
What? That’s crazy…
Same happened to my 360c also. Luckily that day I updated my r3 also and had both my r3 and 360c running in the same car. Police on a motorcycle clocked me and my 360c did nothing but my r3 picked it up. Something’s definately wrong with thia new update.
Eek, please be careful when running two detectors at the same time. That can cause its own problems too due to interference between detectors. Hopefully that was the culprit, not the lockup issue… but who knows?
I am a fan on the Valentine V1 and was ready to buy the same unit for another car, but now with the V1 being in limbo, I am considering the ESCORT Max 360. Is this a good all around detector similar in performance to the V1? I am ready to buy it but just want your opinion.
It is, yeah. You can pick one up here: https://geni.us/EscortMax360-VR or here: https://geni.us/Max360c-VR
I’ve noticed each time I unlock the screen on my iPhone X I get a false Laser detection reading. The Phone is 8” from the Max360c when this happens. Is this what the update should fix?
Other than the color and a few very slight differences in the cases, is there ANY performance difference between Escort and Beltronics? Do you see an Escort or Beltronics brand detector/dash cam all-in-one in the future?
Which is good redline 360c or max 360c ?
Right now, Max 360c. When Escort gets the Redline 360c working properly, I think it’ll be the better detector.
