Okay so putting this here hoping it reaches the most users----have some maybe good news for anyone seeking a Ravelco device for self-installation. I purchased just the device without the $500+ "professional installation, authorized dealer" mumbo jumbo--paid just about $70 shipped early in 2020. (Admittedly I've not yet installed it but given a few factors it WILL be done very, very soon.)
Mine was purchased through eBay, at the time there were at least 10 other sellers offering the same device BUT Ravelco complained those offered were knock offs or counterfeits--eBay removed all listings that mentioned Ravelco by name. Ravelco also has a "warning" on their site anything NOT sold/installed by their people are fakes, have no warranty protection, a new "key" can NOT be obtained should you lose your originals. So..........
I contacted my original seller and he has a few still remaining and newly listed. IF you're in the market for one of these AND have the ability to properly install it I'd suggest "get 'em while they're hot........".
I have absolutely no affiliation or connection to this seller, would not receive any sort of quid pro quo
for sharing his listing here, hoping only to spread the news.

I hope this is helpful to anyone seeking a Ravelco.
