I believe that code is just for the RAM products.

As to the BT headset, I gave up on it. The ones I tried just didn't work well for me. I could hardly hear them over wind noise and through ear plugs, the speakers pressed enough on my ears to make riding more than a couple hours downright painful. I couldn't get the mic and my chin in the helmet at the same time. I spent enough chasing that dream, and gave up.

Appreciate GPSCity for offering such a good price and big discount.
I have been trying to figure out how to securely mount my phone/GPS on Kymco Downtown 300 with minimum modification.
One user on Kymco forum showed me this setting:
http://www.rammount.com/universalxgr...2/Default.aspx

It looks nice, but I found a problem:
the listed RAM-B-272 is 9mm hole while RAM-B-252 is 11mm hole.
According to other Downtown user, the bike has 10mm hole for the rear view mirror (where I plan to put the base plate), should I get a 11mm instead since I can't find any 10mm model form RAM?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I sent a PM to GPSCity on 6/2 for the Garmin coupon code (want to order the Zumo 590LM)
So far no joy.
GPSCity hasn't posted for a couple of weeks, hope G is OK (is J still monitoring his PM's?)

I'd prefer to support GPSCity given his participation here -a little discount doesn't hurt either- but the silence is eerie and it makes you wonder about the support, should you need it. I'll give this a few more days...

Pick up the phone or send an email. PMs can be missed. GPSCity has always been great to deal with.

Check out the Schuberth SRC system or the BMW COMM system, I have both and people tell me they cannot tell I riding a bike when talking and I can hear perfectly clearly at any speed.
Ride Safe,

Tried that. The order department says: "Yeah, we have some coupon codes on ADVrider, we don't give those out on the phone." Catch 22.
So I'm following the prescribed protocol the vendor published. I'd rather do business with GPSCity still, but it's a discretionary purchase: I have choices, and if I do not receive a courtesy response within a few days I will exercise them.

What is this great customer service of which you speak? I called them a week ago about the discount code for the Garmin Montana bundle and was told to send a PM. Sent the PM six days ago and no response.

Look, I don't mean to start a bitch sub-thread about these great guys. People have accidents, break hands. Garmin has been known to put shipment restrictions to vendors selling under MAP. The marketplace is huge and vendors cannot monitor every 'Farm' 24/7.

I'm sure they'll resurface in due time, these offers are an incitement, not an entitlement. Speaking as a businessman, the 'hook' is to establish relationships, becoming the 'vendor of choice' long term. I'll give these guys a bit of slack, they're dealing with whatever the current priority may be -putting out fires- and they'll be back as soon as they can.

We're motorcyclist, hell, things don't go as planned all the time. If GPSCity is absent for a while, no worries, I may buy somewhere else. Doesn't make them bad (or good), they're just trying to feed their families like we all are.

There is also an e-mail contact on their page, which has worked for me in the past. I can only speak for my experience which was good

$719.99 delivered. Amazon? Amazing! No secret handshake required, either! But you snooze, you loose!
Bet you I get a PM code tomorrow...
