Does the Max 360c have band segmenting and an RDR toggle?
The MAX series of detectors use what Escort calls UltraDSP which is lightening quick at processing detected signals without the need for band-segmentation.
Can special athermic windshield adversely impact detection performance?
"Athermic" windshields have a metallic coating which will severely impact a radar detector's performance. Most have small areas to mount detectors and GPS nav units. GPS signals will also be blocked by this coating.
What is the Defender Database?
Defender is a database of North American red light and fixed speed camera locations that can be updated weekly.
What is the USB Port Used For?
The Max 360c is web ready and the USB port can connect to a PC for software downloads and Defender Database updates.
What is variable speed sensitivity?
The Max 360c is able to increase sensitivity as your traveling speed increases so when you are driving at slower speeds the likelihood of falsing will drop as you do not need fully sensitivity.
Can the Max be used outside of North America?
Escort does not monitor what frequencies are used overseas, but many customers travel abroad with their Escort
What is Expert Mode?
Expert Mode will show you up to 8 radar signals at the same time and will show relative signal strength and associated Band of each signal.
What is the Warranty Period?
Escort's products ordered from RadarBusters come with a full one-year factory warranty. Extended Service Plans are available on select models that will provide two additional years of warranty for $29.95.
I already have GPS in my car. Why do I need it in my Max 360c?
The GPS feature is not used for navigation. The Max 360c allows you to Mark locations of interest, Block false radar and laser alerts, tracks vehicle speed in real-time, and allows sensitivity based on the vehicle speed.
What is the memory capacity of the 360 and can it run out of space?
The 360c has more than enough memory to hold all your locations as well as the camera locations used in the US.
