isn't the RF extender used in the states a different frequency?

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

No its not the UK equivalent, uk model no RU980, your on about the Pronto NG TSU3000 USA model .The base is for charging and usb pass through.

Hello all

Just hope it don't mess up anything 'important' nearby ;) - and I guess its not CE approved either!

Best regards

Joe

CE Approved....do we care?

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?

but the general joe isn't selling....we're buying, and if its £650 in the UK and £400 in the states...then its a no brainer!

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.

You can get the power supply from maplin or you can use an old pronto one .

nice, looks like I'll be getting a pronto soon. The only problem now is how I connect it to my Mac, but thats another thread.

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!
