locked Re: #APCC APCC/APPM blocking issue with AP1100GTOAE #APCC

The discount is true. I upgraded my Mach 1 from CP3 to a CP4 and I got a ticket in the package offering me a 30% discount on APCC. Sadly I already own pro, and I cant give that to anyone. 🙁

Hi Dale,

> Conversely, a $1500 suite

Please, let's not spread disinformation! Brian's post has a typo.

APCC Pro does not cost $1500. The full price is $500 (actually, $499).

And it is free with the new purchase of 1100GTO-AE, 1100GTO-AEL, 1600GTO-AE, 1600GTO-AEL or Mach2GTO

Lastly, I think there is a 30% discount in the first 45 days after purchasing a new mount or GTOCP4 (but please check the website to
confirm that!)
