Canadian Sales on GPSr's

Recommended Posts

HI I like everyone else loves a good sale. I am hoping this thread will be used by others to notify them of sales or clearance items for caching. I see that a lot of people in the other forums talk about sales in the US and nothing here in Canada.

 

So Can you put up the date and store you saw the special at please

 

so to start us off I saw a Magellan eXplorist 500 LE on clearance at a Canadian tire for 120 this week

I know it's not exactly a GPS receiver but Staples has the Acer Aspire One netbook on for $329 for a few more days (8.9" screen, 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive).

 

I bought one a couple of days ago and I've got it loaded with Garmin's nRoute and Mobile PC as well as iNav's iGuidance (same Navteq maps as City Navigator). I'm using them with a Garmin GPS10x Bluetooth receiver and Globalsat BU353 USB receiver. I've got City Navigator, Metroguide Canada, Topo Canada and Ibycus topos loaded in Mapsource.

 

If I can't find my way home with this, I deserve to be lost... :huh:

Since you work near Radioworld, I would drop over and see if they will match GPS City.

I see in the father's day flyer for Bass Pro Shops a Garmin 200 is going for 449....not really a great deal but still it says 50 bucks off

 

I hope we get a price drop with the 550 coming out soon

In my experience, Radioworld will price match. Also in my experience, their after sale service is excellent. I missed their free BBQ on Saturday - and also all the door prizes (sigh).

Actually, the Explorist 500LE is down to $99 at Canadian Tire.

 

IMO, not a bad price for someone just starting out. Like me! :)

GPSCity 'Black Friday' sale (link)

I think they should call it "April Fool", not "Black Friday".

 

They have listed a Garmin GPS10 bluetooth receiver (not GPS10X) bundled with:

 

- City Select maps

- nRoute nav software for PC

- Que nav software for Windows Mobile

 

The joke? They want $129.95 for it!!!

 

Another joke? The customer reviews are dated December 31, 1969. (Hint: the first experimental GPS satellite didn't fly until 1978.)

I thought they were lame too - as always it's buyer beware :angry:

Something like the $200 Oregon 200 advertised from one dealer in the US would have been great.

The Source has the original blue eTrex Legend on for $59.99 (link)

 

Saw that, but it's not the H version, so usefulness in the woods is severely limited.

 

Sure, the Legend loses some accuracy under thick cover, but I wouldn't dismiss it that quickly. I geocached for years using one of these, mostly in "the woods". It worked fine. Legends were considered the best value for a "starting geocaching GPS" back when I first tried geocaching. They were well over 200$ at the time. I think it is great that people now have the option to buy one and try geocaching for only 60$. They can always upgrade (and keep the Legend as a back up) if they decide they really like this activity.

 

Sure, there are now much better GPS available, doesn't mean that the old ones don't work as well as they used to. :)

You are a much more patient person then I! Between rain and the canopy, we have to keep our fingers crossed than anything less than an H unit will work around here.

Hi: I was wondering if some kind soul could tell me if this is of benefit to someone, someone being myself, looking for a good deal on a gps. Right up front let me confess, I am technically inept. CTC has a Garmin GPS Map 76 for sale at 159.99 (Canadian pricing, I live in Ontario). Okay here comes the sad part, I am not even sure if this is suitable for geocaching. If so, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this would be an EASY and I do mean easy outfit for the technically challenged? The only thing I can tell you about the unit is what the flyer says...reg 329.99 WAAS receiver - ummmm whatever that means...Preloaded base maps of major cities, lakes more... Thanking you in advance

See replies over here (link) To summarize: it is an older B&W unit with 8MB of memory (link). You'd be better off to spend your money on a newer model.

May not be a deal but

I picked up the new garmen 550t today for $589 and wow. What a differenace from the etrex legend HCx. The 550 is well "'Wow". 3.2 camera, picture veiwer, good compass. Thing will even take water temperture. Anyone want a slightly used (4mth.) legend HCx . A very good geocaching tool. I will make a deal."monty hall"
