I received my set (REF-0 & REF-1) today and both units have production date 2000 week 5 and were packed in blue foam and a mylar ESD save bag.
The outer box was opened by eBay, easy to detect due to the eBay tape that was used to close the box again. Maybe because it was shipped via UK and eBay is taking care of the import duties and taxes. The inner boxes were still original.

Nice small rugged units!

I recognized the GPS unit as Oncore UT+, anyone already checked the software version? V2.2 or V3.2 seems to be the best ones, the others may cause some problems, as I remember from older posts.

Onother question... here in Europe was use screws and nuts with 'metric' (mm) threat. What is used for the mounting screws, how do you call that? Maybe I can find some nuts on eBay as well. I want to make a simple rack for the units.

Best regards,
