just bought my Max 360 couple of days ago. These 2 days I drove a lot around the city.....numerous police cars crossed me from opposite direction, the well equipped ones, traffic ones,....not one alarm signal from my detector. Broken?....NO, I own before several radar detectors, including so acclaimed 8500, 9500 ix.....they all went back to the store after 1-2 weeks. I start to wander who writes all these exceptional reviews cause I use to read a lot before buying a product and that's how I ended up giving escort another chance. Everyone talks about how great these late ones are eliminating false alarms...and I agree with that, or how it tells you that you're driving over speed limit...thanks...I know that already. BUT HOW MANY REVIEWS TELL YOU HOW YOUR DETECTOR DETECTS POLICE CARS THAT CAN GET YOU AND GIVE YOU A TICKET..... cause in only 2 days I could've get at least 5-6 tickets if I was to only trust the very fine Max 360 I own.
I need a detector cause I constantly drive fast and I got too many speeding tickets over the years, last one 3 month ago in Canada using a friend's Valentine detector..... I'm giving up searching for a detector, either their technology is intentionally left behind police's, or else.
My Max 360 is going back to the store. Ah, by the way....minutes ago I was trying to register my product with Escort so maybe I can benefit from that firmware update the reviews are talking,,,,guess what?...the registering page just won't work,,it keeps saying incorrect username/ password without giving you details. I am a computer savvy, usually I figure stuff out, not this one, I called the number on the screen just to find out no one available.... Escort, you need a revolution and products up to date. .....and you ,,Happy oners'' enjoy further your great Max 360 being so quiet in town and elswere...so quiet that won't detect the main reason it was created for....police cars that can get you.
I still hope I may get back with better feed back in a week or two but i'm already skeptical.
