If the windshield has a metallic coating then it will affect radar detectors and GPS receivers. There may be areas of the windshield that is clear of the coating which may work for you. The metallic coating is easily visible with polarized sunglasses. It looks bluish/purplish.

Happy to report that the base quadrifoglio does not come with an infrared windshield and the max 360 does indeed work.

I have a non Quad Giulia with the infrared windshield and my 360 works fine. that being said, mine is mounted at the very top of my windshield at the 10 o'clock position relative to my rear view mirror

I confirmed with other QV owners who have the infrared windshield that it does not impact radar performance.

Kind of wish now I would have got my QV with it. Oh well

I question the comments from the other QV owners. Athermic windshields definitely impact detector performance and GPS signal acquisition, unless the detector is mounted in one of the "cut-out" areas of the wind-screen.
