    Yeah but the RF won't work in this country due to the different RF frequency. I believe the frequency used in the states is illegal in UK?

    Is this remote the US equivalent of the UK's ProntoNG RU950?

    Also, what exactly does the docking station do? Does it act as a battery charger? Is it worth it?!

    Cheers

    Best regards

    I guess not :)

    Though for retailers (like myself) it is important and something cost wise that has to be factored in when were looking to import kit to resell in the UK and Europe; I often see posts saying product X is way to costly in the UK when its only $Y in the US.

    CE approval is important - its illegal to sell anything in the UK and Europe that's not CE approved and it can be a costly process for the manufacturer/distributor.

    Best regards

    Joe

    PS Has anyone confirmed with there Home Insurance company if non CE approved kit has a detrimental affect on policy cover?

    maybe a dumb question :blush: but does the change of the american 100v to the european 240v matter? Does the base still charge the batteries? My only concern in importing from the US is they have a different power supply.

    Does the RF frequency of the US model interfere with any 'standard' wireless stuff in the UK - e.g. wireless telephones, etc?
    Any recommendations of the best US distributor to import a TSU7000 & RF extender?

    Thks!
