I saw this on YouTube and am interested to find out more, perhaps getting one myself. I think it's serves better as a digital music book than the iPad Pro because of the dual screen. Has anyone got one or tried it? What are your thoughts?

US$1600 plus US$300 more for the foot pedal.

It looks really cool but I can print out a lot of paper for that kind of money.

Looking at their website, if you want one you should order it as a Canadian, since the price ($1600) is the same but in Canadian dollars.

So if you live in the USA but have a Canadian mailing address or a friend to send it on to you, you could save a significant amount of money.

Wow! I didn't realise it was so expensive! For USD1600, I can probably buy the entire Henle App music library for my existing iPad Pro, and have some spare change for a short holiday!

Forget it.

According to a couple of reviews I read, the operating system is slow and of limited functionality, making the GVIDO not so useful. I really needs to be majorly improved.
Since you already have an iPad Pro, you can get a second one, and using ForScore they integrate perfectly as a two-page score reader, and the iPad OS is light-years ahead of the GVIDO.
I bought a used iPad Pro for my second one cheaply on Ebay. It doesn't need to be fancy because all the files are on the main Pro, and it just gets the pages on the fly via WiFi. Very Slick.

I bougth this reade wit it's pedal and the leather cover, 2808 € , the product is OK. BUT, BUT. The software is, to be polite, not user-friendly at all. Handle folders and files is a nightmare. Add or change files the same. You can create folders but no sub-folders.Gvido replied me that even with new release of their software that won't be poassible.
I used a Sony Digital Paper and there you can use the storage like a hard disk under Windows. When I change a partition on the computer I connect the Digital Paper to the computer and I run an parameterized XCOPY to have the new version on the Digital Paper. With the GVIDO I must first delete the old version on the tablet, connect the GVIDO to the computer, then copy the new file to the folder, disconnect the GVIDO and then add the new version to the folder and then with up and down put my partition on the right place.
I continue to use my Digital Paper hoping that Sony will one day Digital Paper with pedal zo turn the pages.
I hope that GVIDO will soon give a software update to improve these problems. Ps. After every shutdown I have to reactivate Bluetooth. Not very user-friendly too.

I looked at this and thought it would be ideal.
Then I saw the price and bought the iPad Pro 12.9 inch which, with free Piascore, does the job just fine for me smile

Thanks for taking the time to post your experience here gilbertM. That seems like a disappointing user experience with the GVIDO.

There is a person named CapitainDerya who said that they could create an Android app to turn pages on the Sony DPT. You might want to ping him or her:
