Another Newbie from the Netherlands
« on: August 18, 2013, 05:52:08 PM »
Hi everone,
I very recently got a demo fro the DutchmidiMan with his 07 RT, laptop en GS911 Pro and I became steadily more enthousistic as we went through the various functions. I have a BMW service garage in the middle of Holland and although I see all kinds of BMW's my specialty is the R bikes. At present I am using a TEXA along with a handheld Gutmann Bike Macs to supplement. What impressed me was the 911 has the all of the handiness of the handheld and the extensive functionality of the TEXA. Because the 911 is a dedicated BMW diagnostic tool I can set up to use quickly and anywhere meaning in the shop or out on the road. Many thanks to both the DMM and Hexcode for making my work easier and faster  :D

He is so happy with his GS911, he even went so far and sold his Texa!
And he is far more saffy on the diagnostics of our beemers for sure, I'm just a hobbyist!

But back to how I see it;
When I'm happy with a product, service or a company, I try to tell at least a thousand people.
Which happens to be on a popular forum over here, with over 2000 members.

I also used that platform to forewarn people for the Chinese versions, as these had surfaced over here also for a short period.
All but an occasional individual took that advise at heart, he ended up with a nice Chinese yellow brick. (evil grin).

I do wish and hope Hexcode to go on for many, many years to come and continue developments.

Maybe part of "this" link should be what new people see on the GS911 site, when they visit the first time?

I do not know

That link has been predominantly present in the past of the landing page of the HexCode website, but I guess it is no longer that bigga issue any more, perhaps? (I do not know, of course!)

In the Netherlands there were a few companies who offered the Chinese counterfeit (and bad working) copy for a few months, last year on a popular Dutch website.

Together with HexCode's official Benelux distributor I tried to stop them but could little else then report on it, as only the official vendor (HexCode in this case) could take formal action in corporation with the Dutch police.

But a few months later they were gone, I guess too many complaints about these counterfeit versions. Good riddance!

Unfortunately, these are not the only counterfeit products coming our way, nowadays.
Looking at programs such as BBC WatchDog where even counterfeit brake pads had been discovered. And counterfeit parts for airplanes too!  :o
I only buy my parts from trusted sources, but that is apparently no longer a 100% guarantee, nowadays.

I agree, we all benefit, a clear win-win situation.

And I strongly believe we all, in the end, build the GS911 by using it and by providing feedback. What we like and want, and equally important, what we do not like or miss/seek.
