Thumbs up ShifterMax sensors jamming DragonEye with latest firmware

Here is a video from Cartunes, one of our authorized installers in Atlanta (where DragonEye guns are heavily used) demonstrating MAX Ci's ShifterMax sensors effectiveness against a DragonEye gun that is using the latest firmware.

As long as ShifterMax sensors are installed properly, they work very well.

Very impressive! Does the ZR5 perform as well? The sensors look the same.

Will you announce when software updates are available in the forum?

The ZR5 shifters are exactly the same as the ShifterMax heads with the Mac CI and CI 360.

Iím sure that a firmware announcement will be announced shortly.

Actually the current firmware that is released to the public months ago will do this. It is already released.

MAX Ci, MAX Ci 360, ZR5, and the upcoming ZW5 all use the same ShifterMax sensors which have the same performance as shown here in this video.

We announce all software updates on the forum. We already released an update for the MAX Ci's ShifterMax sensors to address the latest DragonEye software. New systems already have this update installed.

@escortradar I spoke with Cartunes about this video because I am getting the same setup on my new car.

1) They confirmed this car (the one in the video) has three heads on the front and not just two. In this situation do all three heads fire back at the dragon eye, or does one read the pulse pattern, and the other two fire back? I am asking because I was told the pins on the shiftermax module only affect the announcement of the direction from the CI360 and don't link the heads to communicate with each other?

2) They told me you guys are sold out of the ZR5. Do you know when it will be back in stock?

I cannot discuss how ShifterMax sensors work in detail, it is proprietary technology.

I can say that ShifterMax sensors do not require a dedicated sensor to read the gun's pulse pattern like other products in the market. Adding ShifterMax sensors increases the overall coverage of a vehicle. If you have a vehicle with a large frontal area then you may want to add additional sensor/s.

I do not know when the ZR5 will be back in stock.

Demand for all of our installed systems has been beyond supply since they were announced in early 2017.

Production in the USA has now begun to alleviate the supply chain issue.

Going forward, all Escort installed systems will be made in the USA!
