    Default How often does Cheetah Update?

    Does anyone know how often Cheetah updates the RLC/SC database for their products?

    I got the GPS mirror in August and saw a message on here about an update being "live" the same day, all is good. Since then, every time I run the software for updates it is the same revision/file.

    Is that just the firmware version with updated locations or is it exactly the same as it was nearly 2 months ago?

    Way back in April I purchased a 9500Ix, which I've since sold and replaced with the far superior V1. I still get the email from Escort about which states have updates each week, Illinois is always on the list, and Chicago is riddled with the d**n things......so the thought of having an outdated file is a little disturbing!

    I have only had my C50 for a couple of weeks, but it seems like they update about once a week.

    Does the update file name ever change for you?

    The only one I get is the one listed here: http://www.radardetector.net/forums/...date-live.html

    Every time I go to update it asks if I want to replace XXXX0919 with XXXX0919

    Please tell me Cheetah is still updating the old platform.

    My C100 has not had a new update in over a month...

    That's what I thought as well, but it has been over 2 months since the last update I've seen.

    SpeedCheetah still lists the most current update as 0919; which according to a different thread on this site, went live on 8-18-09.

    Disappointing for sure, guess I'll have to load the Trapster RLC database into my GPS.
