Just a quick note to let you know that Bill's Electronics [Magellan
Serrive Centre] was very quick with their service (less than one week after I
sent the unit). There was a software problem that they corrected and this change
made the unit operate better than when it was new. Good news (no charge). Thanks
for your help.
Thank you. Found your website very user friendly with the best prices.
Thank you so much for your quick response and in sending it out today

I like the way you do business - prompt - obliging - well organized

Just thought I'd drop you a note expressing my gratitude and admiration
for your work with customers. The Garmin Legend that I purchased from you (at
an unbeatable price), arrived in lightning fast time, as were your responses from
my many email inquiries. A tip of the hat and a vitual shake of the hand to your
company, you represent Garmin and Canada very well.
Good prices, and research and comparison information that is valuable
in order to make informed purchasing decision.

Just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your excellent service. I received
everything that I ordered and up till now I am very satisfied. Thanks again!!
Is there a place on your wesite that I can leave positive comments?
Your outfit is incredible...I've already referred you to 2 others who are looking
at GPS for xmas gifts. I've told them of your quick response times with emails
and your excellent website. Again...thank you for your help.
Nice online store, easy to use, not confusing at all. Good job.
I participated for the first time last weekend in the Kawasaki
GPS Dualsport Series in Cloyne,
ON. The ride was incredible. 565km over 2 days of very beautiful countryside.
Thanks for sponsoring such an amazing event. As a result of this event, I learned
of your services and have already ordered over $100 dollars of accessories for
my Garmin. After viewing your website and comparing prices and variety of products,
I expect I will make many future purchases from GPS Central.
Thank you for the excellent service and rapid delivery of the products
I ordered from you. I will not hesitate to refer your company again.
I like your prices and I like your web site - your previous reputation
for delivery and on phone assist is awesome - thank you in advance

Just wanted to say thank you to you for all the information you gave me regarding
the purchase of my GPS. You went above and beyond when it came to helping me out
and I just wanted to extend my gratitude for helping me out. Your courteous and
prompt replies were the reason that I have chosen to buy my GPS from you. Again
From purchase until now, my dealings with GPS Central have been conducted
entirely via the internet, and in my experience have set a new standard in efficiency.
All responses have been amazingly swift and satisfactory. This impression also
extends to your Website - the people doing the setup and maintenance have created
a very informative, fast, and up to date shopping experience. I'll be ordering
more accessories soon, and I even have some of my coworkers contemplating their
GPS purchases at your site also. Thanks,

Very good, easy to use website
Sept 15, 2003
The fact that you are Canadian owned and operated is
significant. Although there is another YYC on-line store that has lower prices
on some items, I notice that their parent (?) store is in Las Vegas, so one can
assume that some of the profits go to the country that has banned the import of
Cdn beef and countervailed softwood lumber. That, however, is another story......
I'm looking forward to doing business with you.Thnx...
Sept 14, 2003
Great site, all the info I needed to compare all the unit. Truely a site that
you can shop at!
Great Site... just placed an order and found everything I needed.
You have taken the time to add lots of extra information that made the experience
VERY GOOD AND LOTS OF PRODUCTS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
The website is one of the more easily navigated that I have seen.
I like the way that the inventory is presented.

Thanks for the great service!
You were recommended by friends, and I have recommended you. previous
purchases through you have been processed quickly and hassel free.
Thanks for the quick response and excellent customer service.
Great price, and I always prefer to Buy Canadian!
Now if only you'd carry more map software, I wouldn't need to buy that elsewhere
I would like to thank you for the fast replacement of the defective
GPS I initially received. At first I was very disappointed with the failure of
the unit, I was worried that I was in for a long exchange process and regretted
ordering over the internet. Your quick exchange of the unit has renewed my faith
in internet business. I had the replacement within a week, just in time for a
long weekend trip. Technology items do have failures; fortunately this one is
now a memory. I expect the next time I need a GPS I'll be ordering from you and
will recommend your site to others. Regards

for some great information on using non-aviation GPS's for aviation use. These
people are excellent www.gpscentral.ca. They carry both Garmin and Magellan

They patiently answered all my questions when I was shopping for a GPS.

was better on that days exchange rate. *** site definately seemed like it was
an afterthought as opposed to the main way of doing business. Origonally I planned
to find out details on the web and then purchase locally, but your prices were
good and the site made me confident that I would not have any surprises. (Like
accessories might not have been included, shipping pricey or slow, etc) This is
the first time I've felt that way about an online purchase, despite being in the
high tech industry. Thanks,
Internet site made me feel comfortable compared to others.
Thanks very much! I'll keep shopping with you guys, the service is
nothing but excellent!
Thank you for your help, from my contact with you and your company,
I am very impressed with your service.

from your company. Please make him a liar. Thank you.

Many thanks for your very prompt reply to my question. I have had nothing but
pleasant dealings with your firm and wish to congratulate you on excellent customer
service. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone I know that
is interested in GPS technology. The answer to my question was extremely helpful
and explains what I thought may be an "electrically" related problem. My Meridian

Thanks for the prompt delivery and great service, I will certainly

If anyone is looking to purchase a GPS and is not sure where to purchase,
look no further. Without a doubt GPS Central will satisfy all of your customer
needs and do it with a friendly attitude and the finest customer service. I received
my orders overnight and hassle free and am very happy with the E-Trex Legend.
Ian and Joe will take of you, doing business in a manner that will leave you 100%

Thank you for your very fast and personal responses. Thank you very

Just a note of thanks for the prompt and attentive service I received
with my recent order of a Meridian Gold. I dealt with Ian and I couldn't be happier
with the speed and attention he gave to my order. The unit arrived a little less
than 18 hours after I placed the order. Ian was pleasant and knowledgeable over
the phone. I just hope I'm half as happy with my new GPS as I was with your service.

Overall, I like this device and very satisfied with your service. The comparison
table of each GPS on your Website is the best part of your master piece, keep
the way it is. And I would like to thank you for waiving shipping cost on my invoice,
even it is not much, but it shows that you are really listen to me. I have saved
your address as a Way Point, hope I can stop by when I visit Calgary, to say hello
and thanks to all of you.
Thank you for your very informative WEB site. I just received all
the equipment I ordered 2 days ago. This was my first major purchase over the
Internet and I must admit I was a bit apprehensive. I live in Montreal and spent
a whole day shopping around for my Meridian Gold. I decided to order from you.
What a good decision. I ordered late Tuesday afternoon and Thursday a.m. I got
all of my order, delivered at my door. I find this just amazing. Keep up the good
work and you can be sure that if I ever need any other items, I will get them
from you and will highly recommend you people.

Thank you very much for your quick and professional service !
Happy customers always return! (Keep up the great service you provide).
Thanks for caring for your customers.
I will certainly recommend you guys for any future GPS and software
Just a quick note to say 'THANKS!' for such prompt service. I placed
my order last Thursday, and I received my order today [Monday]. Excellent service
on your behalf.
Thank you guys, and the lady with the british accent! Hope this works
out. :))) Thank you for caring, and for spending your time. Sincerely,
After visiting your web site many times, I finally got decided :)
I could have order on-line, but as I was not sure of what I should buy, I thought
that it would be good for me to go to your place. Even if I live quite far from
Calgary (in Montréal area...), I knew that I wanted to buy from you because you
really are GPS specialists; even the way your web site is setup, it shows that
you care about your customers and I felt comfortable. Of course, the good prices
you have helped my decision too! After meeting with you today, I was not desapointed;
you took time to give me explanations, even if I knew nothing about GPS (so far...)
and even if you were busy. I also appreciated that fact that you talked to me
in French a little bit!!! You did quite well! I guess that you don't have too
many occasions to practice in Calgary!

Scrollbars left & right. Sorry people. You'll never get my business. YUCK
Great service in past.
Missing part received today. Excellent service. One more happy customer :o)
I have been in the market for a UPS and found the local retailers a little too
expensive, so I resorted to searching the web. I found your price and shipping
methods the most attractive by far. You offered a better package at a better price
than the GPS model I was originally considering.
Thank god there is a Canadian company for some of
this stuff! Keep up the good work!
Exhaustive search indicates you have the best website, information and price!
I began searching the web on getting info about gps. I found your website to be
the best I saw and your prices were also the best.
Great product selection, effective web site and the users photos are a nice touch.
Have you thought about hosting a GPS user forum?
Great Site. I was so glad to find a Canadian site
for GPS equipment.
I will reccomend you to anyone who asks, the service and quick delivery i received
has been TOP NOTCH. Thank you from a VERY satisfied customer......

they do alot of GPS rides here in Ontario. So there is a link to your site, and
they speak very highly of your store!!!
Comments = I can't wait to go riding!!!!
I will mention your store to friends.
Before I get to the meat of my question let me mention how helpful your site and
your employees have been in my quest to find the best GPS for me. When I decide
it's a virtual certainty that I'll be purchasing the GPS from you. When I phoned
your store the gentleman who dealt with me was informative, friendly and interesting.
Thanks for not joining the phone only/ telemarketing type mentality that seems
to pervade the business world.
I thought I would simply take a moment to relay on to you the fact
that I am very impressed with the customer service I recently received from you
and your company this week. On Wednesday afternoon, approx 2:00PM Calgary time,
I telephoned you to follow up on an order I had e-mailed you that morning. You
found the order and processed it that day. At approx 2:00PM today (noon Calgary
time), Friday, in Toronto, Canada Post delivered my GPS unit and all accessories
to me. You couldn't ask for better service from a company!!! There is only one
problem--I had planned on working this weekend at my office!! So much for that!!!
Again, thank you very much for your excellent and prompt attention!!
I was referred by Garmin to Canadian firms providing
MapSource Update services. I chose your firm because you offer on-line business
services. I find this very efficient.

I just wanted to acknowledge the excellent support I received last week when I
purchased my new GPS 196. The problem I found in purchasing this unit was getting
accurate advice regarding the land and water functions. As you know the aviation
units are usually only sold through aviation dealers and they tend not to know
the Blue Chart and Street data and how it works. I also found a problem finding
stock and accessories with the aviation dealers. Since I fly, sail and work in
oil and mining exploration I felt this was the perfect unit but I didn't want
to pay the higher price unless I knew the unit would meet my requirements. Thanks
again GPS Central for your advice.

I have received my new Etrex Legend last friday and everything was fine. I will
enjoy it now ! Thank you for your good service.

Right from the
start I would like to compliment you on you site, with respect to content, design
etc. I held off buying a GPS until I had the opportunity to talk to the "factory
reps" from both Garmin and Magellan at the National Boat Show at the CNE in Toronto,
as all the retail outlets that sell the GPSs don't even know how to turn the units
on. Needless to say I walked away very disappointed aftter the boat show because
all they did was badmouth each other and simply rhymed off the basic specs from
the brochures. [Boat Show reps take note!!] Hence I am very pleased that the "Google"
search engine found you.

Your service is second to none, delivery is always prompt, after sales service
is friendly and efficient, and your prices are the best I have found. I work in
a "high tech" industry (write software for Sawmills) and people know of my interest
in GPS's and Geocaching and are always asking for advice, I always recommend your
web site and store to anyone who asks for GPS info etc. Geocaching has become
somewhat of a passion for us and everybody we meet and talk to, we recommend you
as the BEST place to purchase the BEST GPS equipment. I would also ask if it is
OK to create a link to your web site from my web site (check us out some time www.kiwisincanada.com)
[Sure!! -- Jo]
I bought mine [GPSMAP 76S] at GPS Central The best part was, ALL the questions
I had were answered. They spent a lot of time with me on the phone and even had
someone else call me at home about detailed Datum. The best part was they accidentally
over charged me $12 and they were on the phone apologizing. They are in Calgary,
just wish they had a outlet here in Edmonton!

I ordered a GPS76 unit last september and I have been very satisfied by both your
