Procedure for returning Syrus devices under and out of warranty
It stands for Return Merchandise Authorization, and it is the process of having a product repaired or replaced in order to receive a refund or credit for another product from the same retailer or corporation (DCT) within the product’s warranty period
It stands for Non-Warranty Repair, and it is the process of repairing Syrus GPS devices in DCT laboratory that are out of warranty. This implies there are fees for revision.
STEP 1 – Your device is NOT functioning
If your device is not functioning, please contact DCT via:
STEP 2 – Support Engineer troubleshoots and determines eligibility
Our technical support engineers will work with you to troubleshoot the device and determine the eligibility of RMA or NWR.
NOTE: Your device must be UNDER WARRANTY in order to qualify for a laboratory revision without fees; however this does not mean the devices will be replaced or fixed.
UNDER WARRANTY MEANS 1 YEAR SINCE THE DATE IT WAS PURCHASED FROM DCT.
