Gerald; I don't like to get in very deep in a discussion when someone likes a product but I will answer your question.In Houston we get around 50 inches of rain per year with the Telma being exposed to all the elements and flooded streets the drivers would drive through these areas and like anything electronic it does not like water,they are exposed to dirt, grime and whatever is on the road ways.Houston Metro has brought these into the shop for warranty work that the maintenance people have never greased the 2 bearings causing the unit to siege.I have saw them with wire, nail and other metal products wedged in the unit.If guys like the unit and serves them well that is great the point I am making is they are not trouble free.   

have a great day

If I had had the financial wherewithal, I would have bid on one in a mouses heartbeat.
Unfortunately, at the moment I'm at the mercy of the best half of this partnership.. and she has some other wishes for spending money. (If we had any that is).

Maybe they'll come back up again, when I can wine, dine and finagle my way into the permission to purchase.
Yeah, Right!

So the big question is, after 539 views of this thread, did anyone find the Telma on ebay a great deal and buy it?
 Or did all my post do was start another argument about how wonderful, inapplicable , amazing, unreliable or worthless the things are?

I didn't bite because I suspect it wouldn't fit my Dina plus I don't have any spare money right now.
