Default ZW5/ Max 360C combo?

Was there ever a Max 360c / ZW5 shifter combo sold (in 1 box)?

A friend is claiming that he bought one a while back but I cant find one online. I see you can buy a 360c or the zw5 separately.

Thanks ahead for any clarification.

Yes, at one point they offered a bundled deal - not sure if it came in one box or not - but you got a discount for the pair.

When you buy the ZW5 you have to choose between one with either a "SmartCord Direct Wire" (hardwired) or a "Plug & Play SmartCord" (cigarette lighter) to handle the wireless interface.
Therefore, I would doubt you will see a ZW5 boxed with a 360c, as opposed to a separately boxed discounted deal which I have seen offered from time to time.

The ZW5s are nice if you need only 2 heads. If you want 4 head capability the wired ZR5s would be the alternative.

I run the wired version of the shifter. Mine did not come together . You have to buy them separately . But I saw on this website that there has been discounts before to buy both together which is probably what your friend is referring to .

We offered a bundled MAX 360c & ZW5 combo which was available in direct wire and coiled cord flavors. Both were in one big box.

As I best recall there was something in the offing to allow the ZR5 to handle more than 4 heads.

Is there anything similar in the ZW5's near future to allow an increase in the number of heads it may be offered with?

It is my understanding that eventually that they had planned to add capability to add more sensors..... I have been well protected with my dual, so.... though I had considered later adding a third sensor up front I am not convinced it is not needed and probably will not upgrade.

I was considering a wireless front/rear setup were it to become available.

Yes. We will wait to hear from our Escort Rep on this one. It may have taken back burner for a while, but I think it'll happen eventually. I can't say enough good things about my ZR5. I decided not to go with wireless when I bought my shifters just in case I needed to run it without a detector for whatever reason, but the wireless shifter idea is really huge, and I am betting that you'll see a lot of these go wireless as time goes on .
