MAX 360C USERS WITH ACCESS TO WI-FI

1) If MAX 360c has firmware version v1.4 or earlier, its firmware must be updated. Failing to do so will prevent you from receiving speed limit data, Live alerts, firmware and Defender database updates over Wi-Fi after September 12, 2018. We recommend updating using Wi-Fi.

2) To check the firmware version, hold the MRK and MUTE buttons while powering on MAX 360c.

  • IMPORTANT!!! Apple users: If your MAX 360c firmware version is below 1.5, immediately update its firmware using Wi-Fi. Failing to do so will prevent you from receiving speed limit data, Live alerts, firmware and Defender database updates over Wi-Fi after September 12, 2018.

3) To connect MAX 360c to Wi-Fi and update firmware:

  • If you have not already, register MAX 360c on our website here. Remember the email and password that you used.
  • Install the ESCORT Live app on your smartphone and pair MAX 360c to your smartphone's Bluetooth. Login to ESCORT Live using the email and password used when you registered MAX 360c.
  • Connect your smartphone to your Wi-Fi network and go to ESCORT Live's "Wi-Fi Settings" menu to enter the Wi-Fi network's password. After successfully connecting to the Wi-Fi network, the speed limit indicator on MAX 360c will change to white indicating that is receiving data from Wi-Fi.
  • After MAX 360c connects to Wi-Fi, it will notify you if a firmware update is available.
    • If a firmware update is available, Update Firmware? (-No/+Yes) will be displayed.
    • Press + to begin the update process. Make sure to stay within range of the Wi-Fi hotspot until the update has completed.
