Following on from the previous post I would like to issue an apology if the post appeared misleading. Here is the response from Mongoose NZ GM David Harley:
We are not sure what you mean by ‘some issues’ with the M60 remote. This infers that there is more than one issue.
The only recent ‘issue’ was about 2% of production models had shorter than normal remote reception range – about 5 metres from the vehicle – which incidently is about the same as most factory remotes using the infrared system.
This was caused by the RF receiver board – not the remote control itself, so your blog is inaccurate.
An upgraded RF receiver board has been retro-fitted to all M60’s, those in our and our dealers stock, plus those of any customer who may have experienced shorter than normal range. All Mongoose dealers have been issued a service bulletin on this matter which is now resolved. We suggest that your blog comments be suitably brought up to date.
Thank you for correcting me David. I can’t find the words to express how honoured I am that you read my blog.
