Thread: Gs-911

    Is there some real reason I should upgrade to a WiFi 911? I believe if I do so, i'd also have to purchase the adapter to connect the new 911 to my older, 10-pin connection points.

    I have always traveled with either a laptop or a tablet. With the tablet and Bluetooth to the 911, I have the diagnostic functions only. With the laptop and USB I have the full range of options.

    Does the new 911WiFi offer any additional functionality either through WiFi or USB than the older model? Is the sole improvement the WiFi connectivity plus the ability to connect to the newer model years? Any knowledgeable clarification appreciated.

    I used to have an Android OS phone and there was a free GS-911 app. It appears it's no longer free. I now have an iPhone but there is no Bluetooth connection option. Is there a WiFi based app that allows connection between the iPhone and the newer 911? Full function or diagnostic only? Free (ha ha)?

    TIA!
    I don't see why you need a different GS911 than you have - yet. At some point you may have different equipment - different bike, different computer equipment, different phone, etc. Then you might decide you want or need a new GS911. I just got a new one but we have new G310GS bikes with the OBDII port and software. Yes I could get an adapter for my old GS911 but I am not confident the coding works the same on the old units as on the new units. So I got one on sale.

    Might be a good time to get one of the old(r) ones for the F800GS
    Then there is dealing with Windoze and finding an old laptop

    Possibly, Iíve checked all the usual suspects and $399 is the going rate today. Went to far as to put it in cart and start checkout, still no discounts.

    Same here. I had in my mind to make the purchase this weekend (buying one as a gift for my son), but no dice on the sale price. Bummer - - I was under the impression the sale went through Dec 9.

    Ted has also changed his price back to the regular price.
    I would call Ted and ask if he will honor the sale price that he had advertised.
    His website had shown the sale price would be good until the 9th.

    Can't remember if it showed 8th or 9th.

    I found in another thread the date was Dec 9th.
    I edited my post to show the 9th.

    Was the email from Twisted Throttle or Ted at BeemerShop?
    On Ted's website where there was large red text showing Dec 9th.

    The Hexcode direct purchase sale was only until the 2nd. I did however get a new email saying that they are now offering $200 for a trade in. Perhaps that is why the Beemershop sale ended early. Or perhaps they made an error with the date and were made to change it due to licensing agreements.

    Thanks.
    Until today I didn't realize you could purchase direct from Hexcode.
    I wonder what they charge for shipping to the US?
    I already have one, just curious about shipping.

    Received mine yesterday. It was shipped from California. Was able to get it set up and registered without any problems, and already used it to reset the service reminder. Actually took more time trying to find the OBD port than anything (on Ď19 RT itís under the black cover above the engine on the right side).
