    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    I see from my setup file that I was hit 3 times by the vitronic poliscan on the south bound side of I95 in Maryland. I also got hit on the north bound I95 in Virginia by the Kustom ProLaser & Prolite after he hit me with KA. My bel magnum saved me. Can't wait to do the Radar mod to the AL. I would recommend the AL Priority to Every one.

    There are 2 updates for the next update and it will be done in two stages.

    Stage 1 - Your Control Modules Needs Updating
    Stage 2 will follow shortly after with the CPU firmware update.

    To get your unit ready for the next firmware update you first need to update the Control Module (UCSET.bin) - For this update to take place the unit needs to be turned off and while powered off you need to insert the USB memory card. Once powered on this update will install. The Control Module update is not serial number specific.

    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    Thanks Tom - I don't think the referenced 4.2.3 is active yet, as the text hasn't been updated.

    I re-downloaded the firmware file again, and it has the same file hash as 4.2.2 that I previouly downloaded. Do we have to wait to upgrade to 4.2.3 first, before applying the control set update ?

    The next firmware update will require updated sounds for the control module (Especially Radar Alerts) so you need to update the controller prior to the next firmware update or many sounds would be missing from the Control Module. There is no need to update the Controller firmware until they release the next firmware update.

    The process is slightly different then firmware updates in that the control module update is not tied to your serial number like the actual firmware updates. The unit also needs to be off prior to inserting the USB memory card. Normal Firmware updates will automatically install if inserted when the unit is powered on.

    New Firmware will be available tomorrow. Please also remember to update BOTH the Control Module Firmware as well as the current CPU firmware. You will need to update both for the new firmware to operate properly.

    How do I know if the update to the handset took place?

    Sorry. I meant the Control Module.

    I downloaded it today and put it on the key. Plugged the key in while the ALP was powered down. Powered it on and it seemed like a normal power up sequence. Does it gave a color or a beep is my question.
