I tried it last night using the USB-C adapter from GoPro and it did not work. No mic settings showed up on the MAX like they do on a Hero 5 or above and the only mic that worked was the one on the camera.

You can't use an external microphone with the GoPro Max or the GoPro Fusion. The simple reason being that anything attached to the side of the camera (even a USB cable) will result in stitching artifacts. As a result, external microphones or the GoPro Microphone adapter are not supported by the Max.
I would suggest using the feedback section in the "Contact Us" page to ask for Bluetooth microphone support in future camera models.

That makes perfect sense, but we need to make sure this external mic supports a wired connection as well. Many of us use a wired connection because we are in a noisy environment. Mine i use in my ultralight aircraft and hook it to the intercom. I'll likely keep using my hero5 for that purpose, but I know being able to on the 360 would be good.

I bought the Max a couple of week's ago for my motorcycle youtube channel Back2TheBike. It's an upgrade from my existing Drift Ghost X in quality and the post-framing 360 capability. A bluetooth-type external mic would be really useful to mount inside m helmet's cheekpiece for in-ride comms and chat. Meanwhile, I've mounted the Max on my fuel tank, and will keep the Ghost X on my helmet. I'll run both on every ride and strip out the audio from the Ghost to mix with the video/sound from the Max. Not perfect, unless anyone has a better idea?
