Did you call or email Transcom? I've had no response to my quick and
polite email, and I didn't want to call them (yet) in case 50 other people
had also been doing the same...

I know that some people think that we should "guessed" by the price that
we were buying a clearance product without software, support or warranty
(apart from being DOA) but if you look at the dealsdirect website just
about everything else they sell is fully functional - they are NOT an
electronics junk shop! I'm not really too happy about this and I will be
expressing my concern about the lack of disclosure to them. I'm just glad
I decided to hold off buying a second unit.

I wonder how much the GPS and GSM modules are worth individually? Could
see some appearing on ebay soon. LOL
