    Good day. I am presently looking for my 1st EQ mount and this new version of the EQ6 sounds great. Do you have an idea of when the new EQ6-R will be available to the genera public & at which retail price it is going to be offered? Does it also have a GPS? Thanks you in advance for your help & support.
