Alan Wheeler once whispered in the wind:
Thanks Andy, but sorry, this pilot was to run hydraulic steering, not wheel steering.
The Navman, which is a really good unit and what I was dreaming of buying one day, has a RRP of NZ$3500, which is about US$2K'ish. I think you guy's are lucky that you get a pump in that price and the pump is extra in NZ.
The money I lost was NZ$850 which was not quite US$500. Our exchange rate is presently 65 cents to the US dollar. So the ST4000 would be approx $1400 my cost plus freight.
The Autohelm ST6000/7000 system to drive Hydraulic, is closer to NZ$8K buy the time I have everything. So it is too expensive here. For me at least.
I would also add, as a former New Yorker, if the price
was that much lower than what the value of the product actually is, it's either a) Stolen or b) a fraud. Sorry to hear about your loss. What a shame.
Another tip (althouth it's not going to help you now), is to compare many items on eBay. Look and see what the average going rate is, and then determine what it should be selling for on eBay.
Best of luck, and hopefully, karma will allow you to find something to make up for your loss.
