Interesting. I didn't have any trouble ordering, but that was at a price more like $32.99, and extra for tracking and insurance.

I saw the article about these on the Goldwing Docs main page and decided to order 2 of these from GearBest. As was mentioned by bluthundr31 and others my units took over 3 weeks to arrive, so be prepared to be patient if ordering from GearBest. I charged both units and plugged a speaker/mic into one of them. When I powered it on, there was an annoying continuous machine gun speed clicking in the left earpiece. I tried the speaker/mic from the other package with the same results. When I plugged the speaker/mic into the second unit it worked fine. I deduced that one of the units was defective. I contacted GearBest and received an automatically generated response E-Mail saying they would contact me within 24 hours. As was mentioned by someone else on this thread, I have tried numerous times to contact them to get a resolution to the problem but each attempt is either completely unsuccessful or he response is vague and unhelpful. Bottom line is; I'm happy with the unit that works overall even though I had to jury rig some of the adhesives to get the mic to hold to the helmet. As for the other unit, I'm getting to the point where I think it will be a waste of money. Still, $26.00 for a working BT headset is not bad at all. I would suggest buyers check Amazon (or other similar websites) and more specifically, their return policy for the specific seller they will be dealing with in case they end up with a bad unit like I did. I would not suggest buying directly from GearBest.

Ok, this is about GEAR BEST. Awhile back I bought a Nomu cell phone from Gear Best. It was to be used for a stand alone GPS with a mapping program called Locus. I was told it would also work as a cell phone here in the USA. However it does not ! but that doesn't matter I only wanted it for a GPS which it works fine for. Ok, Somewhere down the line I loaded Kaspersky anti virus. It found a trojan called "Triada" and it is part of the operating system that has been installed by Nomu. It reports everything back to china somewhere. Because it has been installed by Nomu as part of the operating system it cannot be removed unless you root the phone and then figure out how to delete the offending files. I found out this info by Kaspersky and the xda forums. I know nothing about rooting a phone and have been doing some research but not much info on the Nomu. So when I contacted Gear Best about this they basicly said "Tough ****" you bought it and yes we know it comes with the trojan. So to make a long story short I will NEVER buy anything from gear best again, EVER. i will relate this story to everyone I can and hopefully you will to. I had to delete all my contacts and email address from the phone so when I go on line with it via my hot spot from my cell phone nothing gets sent to china. ANYONE WANT TO ROOT THIS PHONE FOR ME AND GET RID OF THE TROJAN ?

That's good to know Ravyn and Rlward56, , , Hopefully your info will help someone else avoid the same trouble you had with Gearbest.
