There is a device called the In-Hom device. Many of my clients have had more luck with it. Another alternativeis the SCRAM device but that's an ankle bracelet you have to wear continuously. It is also more expensive.

Short of requesting a new device be installed to replace your old one, the only other avenue would be to seek a medical incapable status, which would require a letter from your doctor and a subsequent motion request to DMV. If approved however you then must go the max 6 months with zero driving, as opposed to just the 45 days you did. Bottom line: bite the bullet and soldier through it is best advice.
