Default Portable Laser

Is there a portable laser shifter (jammer) than I can place next to my Max?

None I've ever heard of.
Bottom line is that the laser diode head must be up in front of (or in line with your bumper) to be able to shift. Something inside the cabin will be too far back to work properly.

I'm not aware of any windshield-mounted laser shifters/jammers. All of the ones that I've seen are installed in the front grill near the headlights, and above the rear license plate.

Exactly. I cannot bring myself to drill holes and other blasphemies to mount a "parking sensor" in my Shelby. Don't need it that bad either. ALP is getting close with a B/T wireless module from sensors to control unit.

We could but the shifters would require more transmitting power than is legal or safe. Under the constraints that we have to work with, shifters must be installed near where you will be targeted, the lights and license plates.

I have our upcoming MAX Ci installed in my vehicle which did not require a single hole to be drilled into it for the shifters or the entire system using the mounting hardware that it includes. We cannot guarantee that this is possible on all vehicles but it may be possible on yours. If you are interested then wait until March when we begin selling the new MAX Ci to our authorized dealers and you can consult with them on what will be required for the installation.

You can use double-sided tape or any type of removable silicone style adhesive. Have installed a system on my 2016 Genesis and there was no drilling whatsoever need it easy as pie
