Bottom line is Stromers are an unneeded headache. Just buy an R&M with that budget.
I bought a Canon printer that just shuts off for good one day, maybe after a year. Canon does nothing, won't disclose the real nature of the problem, but offers you a discount to buy again that saves less money off list price than just going to your local store.Maybe you bought a new TV on the past years. If you chosen the 3D-technology, you find yourself in a dead end: Only few content. If you chosen the 4K-technology, you find yourself in a waiting position: Only your actioncam provides 4K - and these movies looking horrible on the big screen. Both very unpleasant situations. But do you see LG or Samsung providing you a refund or something else to make your situation better?
I just received a most unpleasant email from Stromer. Stromer is shutting down 2G connectivity in the USA in one month.
This means if my ST-2 is stolen, I can no longer locate it.
Can I no longer view stats on the app? Engine temp? How about tuning assist level 2?
I spent $7000 on an ST-2 in 2016. My girlfriend bought an ST-2 in 2018.
Theft recovery was a key selling point. App features were key selling points.
Now Stromer is telling us to pay $350 per bike to keep these features.
To say I am displeased would be an understatement.
Thread title updated to reflect folks' input. 2g is shutting down in the USA. Verizon is shutting down their 2g on Dec 31st 2019. T-Mobile is shutting theirs down late 2020 from what I read online. I don't know which provider Stromer uses, but it sounds like the monochrome Omni (that is, not the Omni-C) will no longer connect to your app or to Stromer or to anything when the 2g network it uses shuts down.
According to the email, Stromer is discounting the Omni C from $679 to $350 between Jan 12th and June 30th. If I'm reading the pdf attached to the email correctly, the cost includes dealer installation. The bottom of the pdf in small print reads, "incl. installation cost by dealer. myStromer USA reserves the right to change technical data and prices. *The offer is valid from 1.12.2019 - 30.6.2020"
