    As far as I know they arent officially out. I've had mine on order since about this time last year. Just a heads up you will need to pick up the Expander Unit (6550) along with the GPS Module (6551).

    I have 2 sets on order. One is planned for the Rally and the other for one of my other trucks. I'm hoping it will be something that can be moved easily.

    Pede,

    How much we're the two GPS sets from Traxxas? I'm just curious... I'm guessing at least 75-100 each.

    The GPS module and Expander Unit will be right over a bill for both. With my Tower discounts it will be somewhat less.

    You know that isn't FUNNY!!! LOL

    Yeah you can/could pick one up for that. I just don't want to deal with something bulky or have to worry about it coming out of the truck. It'll be fun to go bash the truck and show off speed. One of those things I guess.

    Nice... Not bad for both modules. Gotta love those Tower Discounts! The 50 off over 300 is always sweet! I used that coupon a while back to get my stampede 4x4 VXL, and it was free shipping. I think Tower does the discounts the best so far, and they usually have an accurate depiction of their stock, something I know other websites tend to overlook. Always sux when you select a item and go through check out only to find that one of the items is back ordered, but it doesn't reflect on their website.

    Yeah, but you'll need the other part too, and what do they sell that for?

    I think it's simply amazing how GPS is now a part of our daily lives, and now even RCs. A decade ago, GPS was stupidly expensive and a 3MP camera was over a grand. My how times progress

    From what I've been reading, the GPS module and expander has been cancelled.

    Well, that is good to know. Been waiting a long time for the release and was disappointed when I read that it was not going to be manufactured, but looks like that info was wrong, or it could have been that the original manufacturer wasn't going to make it and now they have a new manufacturer.
