Newbie living in Montreal. Where can I buy a GPS?

Canadian Tire and Walmart are both pretty good price wise, although the selection differs from store to store.

 

Radio Shack has a wider selection but the price isn't as good. HOWEVER, it may make more sense with a 30 day return policy and if you include shipping from an online reseller.

 

Another great idea is to head across the border to buy one. They are a lot cheaper, even with the exchange.

I just ordered a Etrex Venture from www.gpscentral.ca and the price with taxes included was cheaper than Walmart sells retail so I saved at least $45.00 in taxes. You could also try these guys out as well.

Or, since you are from Montreal try Lebaron

www.lebaron.ca

 

But, don't forget that GPSCentral is the Canadian outlet for GEOCACHING stuff, so you can order a unit PLUS get your cool GEOCACHING Gear. icon_cool.gificon_biggrin.gif

I am still new to geocaching, and have yet to purchase a GPS. I have been lucky enough to find a few caches without one. Using clues and being familiar with the areas!

I was given a hint I would like to pass onto you and others....

Canadian tire does match prices, a GPS is slightly lower in price at Walmart.

But Canadian tire will give you back Canadian tire money (close to$34) if you pay with cash for you purchase. some of the GPS' have a $50.oo mail in rebate. it's a good savings when you add it all up.

I have yet to compare that pice with gpscentral.

happy shopping
