Thanks both - I've enjoyed it really

Quick update from the seller:

1. Yes they are UK stock and of all the ones sold no one has encountered a problem registering them

2. They do come with a warranty

I've suggested he might want to pop in here and see the mammoth 12 pager regarding PLB's - you never know he might be insane enough!!

Keep a copy of the seller's assertion to that effect, as some manufacturers (Garmin for sure, as an example) do not honour warranty claims that have been sold via online auction providers.

I not suggesting that McMurdo are the same, I have had no cause to check, but some do.

Good point Martin - adding up the emails I've had and checking his listing looks like 7 of us have now purchased from him

Is a warranty worth much. Provided it works when you get it, surely you're not going to know whether it works until you activate it... a bit kinda late to claim on the warranty then.
