Does anyone know how to purchase a new transmitter or know of someone who has one that is working and is willing to sell it?

I will be getting a new unit in Europe soon. I am pricing out, and it is $1700 US in Israel. that is for the complete unit, with the new 1 hour instead of 10 hour downtime. UK pricing should be available "soon". Haven't tried the other 5 countries where it is still available. Abbot is still giving the $2000 refund for your existing unit. I can price the extra transmitter in Europe, if you would like, or you can call Abbott, and try to get the buyback and then get a new unit, as I will be doing. Anyone here that has a transmitter would be silly to send it to you, when abbot will give them $2000. I am not clear as to if the new transmitter will work with the old receiver.
Thanks for the response. My question was directed to anyone that may have not been offered the buyback from Abbott or knows a place that is selling a new one. Do you know if the european version of the system works with the US sensors? If not how do you plan on getting new sensors here in the US? (assuming that you reside in the US).
Edgepark.com is supplying the sensors. I was getting them before my unit broke, and then switched to Dex, and now back to Nav sensors. it is the same billing code , so it was no problem to change back. I got the first set of sensors in anticipation of the unit, and wanted to make sure that would not be a problem. It was no problem at all. Who is your current DME?? Yes, the sensors work with the Israeli model, someone else has brought it back sucessfully already.
That is good to know. I have no problems getting new sensors, but wanted to make sure that they do work on the european version of the Nav before making a decision to switch. The downside of it thought is that you won't have warranty coverage here in the US in the case something goes wrong with it.
The warranty will be from the European branch of Abbott, and the replacement unit will come from the California plant. also, it probably will be handled as if I were a European visiting here and it broke, and they will send it here. I know Julie from USA (who got hers in the USA, was in England in 2009, and her's broke, and they sent a new one out in England, under the USA warranty
I've called Abbott last week and asked about the compatibility between the USA and European versions of the system to know if the USA receiver would work with the European transmitter as well as if the USA sensors would work with the European version and they told me no. The systems are not compatible with each other. If that is truly the case, then getting the European transmitter or the complete system here in the US would be a major pain in order to get new sensors.

There is a small [x] at the right side of the message to get rid of the double replies.
