Default How to properly set up and integrate max CI 360 with a ZR5 system?

Okay so after a lot of waiting patiently and several discussions with my authorized dealer, I am going to stop waiting for the 6 head bridge box and move forward with protecting our Mercedes G wagon. Nobody knows for sure when a bridge box will come out and my dealer doesn't seem to think the price will be all that different from a ZR5 system.
With that said, it seems like the easiest thing to do is to run all 4 heads from the Max 360ci in the front of the car with all the indicator switches moved to the front. With a ZR5 system in the rear of the car. Sound good so far?
Front placement, what does Escort suggest, 4 heads in a line across? Going in order heads left to right 1,2,3,4? Or 2 low in the front on either side and 2 in line above them towards the top? If so 1 and 2 bottom 3 and 4 top? What layout would be advised. I will not throw my AD under the bus, they are more than willing to play with this, but also highly suggested another system with a proven 3 head layout saying at this time head placement is more of a guess than anything.
Last question as they said it was impossible. Can the controller of the Max CI be tied together to power on/off the ZR5 system and turn the shifters off? I don't know how easy it would be to be driving recolonize the alert and than select which controller to double tap to pause the jamming process

Hmmmm. Let's wait for EscortRadar to respond here but I am thinking put all four straight in front and then as you said do the ZR5 in the rear. Problem solved. Sounds good and this will get you what you want without waiting any longer.

Thanks! Realized this might help, not the exact car but a very accurate example that I could find quickly of how the front looks, currently the front 2 sensors are just above the middle of the grille, left and right. I do have a front plate.

The rears are just above and left and right of the plates. If we decide to add 2 more sensors to the rear they will likely go just above each rear light. I am guessing but may be possible to get them up higher.

I would keep the ZR5 and MAX Ci's shifters separated so that they do not crosstalk.

If you put all 4 MAX CI heads up front, be sure to change the DIP switches positions in the interface module to reflect this.

Each shifter covers a 21" radial area (a circular area 21" in diameter around the shifter) so I would space them out evenly. Keep in mind of highly reflective surfaces such as the front plate, chrome, and lights.

Perfect and thanks! Does it matter where port/head 1,2,3 and 4 are placed in relation to each other like should 1 and 3 be on one side of the car or 1 and 2? Hope that makes sense?

I do not think so. But you want to be sure that your switches on the Control Box or set properly.
