Default Will LSP Be Updated To New MAX CI VPR Capability?

Well I have to ask this . . . When will ESCORT replace the Laser Shifter Pro with new shifters that are based upon the MAX 360 CI VPR system/algorithms?

Soon I hope, as my LIs need replacement and a custom install MAX 360 CI would require me to scrap my MAX which I am not ready to do right this minute (and pay a lot more). Was looking at ALPS but would much prefer to see what ESCORT has on the drawing boards.

I have the LSP, too. I hope that it can be updated.

The new shifters included with MAX Ci and MAX Ci 360 are entirely new and will not communicate with the old shifter interfaces. There will not be an upgrade path to MAX Ci components from any of our previous installed systems, including laser shifters.

My original question did not inquire about an upgrade to the LSP itself. I knew that was not going to be a possibility. I inquired if the LSP might be under consideration to be replaced/superseded/supplemented by an updated ESCORT shifter product that functioned like the one contained in the new MAX 360 CI with VPR capability.

So same question as originally posted. Is there anything in a standalone shifter product in the near future along those lines contemplated from ESCORT to complete with ALPs VPR capabilities? In other words, if I were going to upgrade to an ALPs in the next year to gain VPR capability, might I be pleasantly surprised to possibly see an ESCORT competitive shifter maybe within that rather broad time frame based on the new CI's integrated shifters?

Sorry if there was any confusion between the Title and body of my post.

Thanks

Absolutely and it may be released alongside of the MAX Ci.

Is there a new (ZR5) availble as a stand alone or that can run alongside a STI-R? If not now, then when??

Yes, we will soon be offering the ZR5, possibly later this week. ZR5 is our latest stand alone laser shifter system. ZR5 will not integrate with a Beltronics Sti-R installed system, but it will work alongside of it.
