Referred By = Return Customer!
Comments = Can't seem to find any GPS accessories around here. So, I'm back! The GPS unit got to my door in only two days and it works great! I will definitely return again when I need more accessories or for a more advanced unit in the future. Keep up the good work.

November 14, 2002
Thank you very much, I have appreciated doing business with you, it has been easy and trouble free.

November 14, 2002
Package has arrived today in good condition, thanks. Good to do business with you.

November 14, 2002
... original message sent a couple weeks ago. Since I never heard anything back I guess the answer to my question was "no", which is certainly your prerogative. However, I must say that simply ignoring, rather than responding to, an email from an existing customer is not exactly a great way to encourage referrals and new customers. Just my $0.02.
November 14, 2002
Ok thanks Jo, I never received a reply to my previous email and i was very surprise because usually GPS Central always have been very fast to reply to email. So this is why I send another email for the same issue.
[Around November 05, a computer glitch annihilated some of our incoming email. If you wrote to us around this time and haven't heard back, PLEASE write again -- your message will be received on our new, improved system!]

November 12, 2002
Really good services. I have bought mine (GPSMAP 76S) from GPS Central in the last couple of days to be shipped to my address in the UK (International) and I received the items with no delay and in excellant condition. I hope to be regular customer for any future purchease.

November 01, 2002
Thanks. Have in the past waited months for delivery of in stock items purchased over Internet, trust is the most fundemental requirement for any business and I am pleased that you actually have in stock what you say.

October 31, 2002
Just wanted to let you know that I received the GPS you sent me the next day you shipped it. I must say this was an amazing experience, calling a store in Calgary when most stores here were already closed (you were still open due to the time difference) and buying a GPS and getting it in my hands within 16 hours is pretty impressive. From the time I hung up, that GPS must have been in motion for the whole time. Thank you very much also for the good recommendations, and the swapping of the original cable with the combo cable. I had received recommendations from my friend for GPS Central, and you can be sure that I will be making the same recommendations to others as well... The unit worked great, and I really like the built-in compass, although it's too bad they don't have a sighting mirror like a real compass. I was amazed with the quantity of map information already in it, it had all the lakes where we went partridge hunting way up north in the La V?rendrye wildlife reserve, and that knocked my friends' and my socks off.... All in all, I am quite the satisfied customer... Just thought I'd let you know!

October 26, 2002
Referred By = the net, looking for gps info, I buy canadian if possible.

I just wanted to let you know that I ordered a GPS unit from you on Wednesday, had it shipped via Canada Post Expedited to me in Ottawa and it has already arrived [Friday morning]. Thank you in advance - I am surprised to receive it so quickly. Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the quick service, both from GPS Central and Canada Post.

October 10, 2002
Shopped here before, and sent a good many your way too.

October 08, 2002
You have the best "in stock" inventory on gps. Would love to see your store in person some day.

October 05, 2002
I must say... I was a little disappointed when I first came across your online store as I had just locally purchased a Magellan 315 as my "beginner" unit. Yikes! No Magellan support I thought. Well after a couple of emails and a recent purchase, I became your number 1 fan in Eastern Canada due to the "top-notch" personal treatment I got. Now with the addition of Magellan products and the excellent pages on all models with comparisons, you have outdone yourself. You have thought of everything and it is much appreciated by us end users. Hats off to your staff who have the foresight to know what people want. I know where my next GPS purchase will be from.

October 01, 2002
The wonderful Jo kindly offered me this package with a further $15 discount on the second map program. Did I get this right, Jo??? Thanks so much for your kindness and help with the order. I look forward to sending you pictures from NZ!

September 30, 2002

I am very impressed, I have received my package in less than two days. If I have anything else I want to buy for my GPS, you are sure that you will have my business.

August 28, 2002
I bought from GPS Central ( The GPSMAP76S was $CA610 (no PST because store located in Calgary and I live in Ontario). The Bluechart was $CA180, but Garmin will be rebating me $US50, with a promotion that ended a month or so ago. Delivery was almost the next day by ExpressPost and their service was excellent. I may of had the advantage of time zone difference (phoning East to West) but they answer the phones quite late at night and were very helpful. When I had problems with the first unit they shipped me, they contacted Garmin within a day and had a replacement on my doorstep the next day, before I had time to return the bad unit. They also gave me excellent support when I ran into a program glitch trying to unlock the maps.

Stan recently told me about a new GPS store in Calgary. Their name is G.P.S. Central, check out their web site at The president is Ian Hansen and is a fixed wing pilot, so he has a very good understanding of what we need and really knows gps units. I have just bought a new Garmin MAP76S from them and they are priced very comparatively against any so called lo cost supplier on the internet as well as better priced than anyone in Calgary. [We were sent us a copy of this message Jamie sent to his ballooning associates -- thanks Jamie!]

July 14, 2002
You are quite welcome and I am very pleased with my GPSMAP 76S ... it is definitely the right unit for my needs. Mix-ups happen sometimes, but the manner in which it was dealt with was first rate! I will be happy to recommend your firm to anyone that I talk to about my new GPS, or anyone else looking for similar electronic equipment. [We inadvertently sent a GPSMAP 76 instead of a GPSMAP 76S when we first filled Nick's order]

You've certainly earned my respect and confidence as a retailer. I couldn't have gotten better service if I lived next door to your shop.

Outstanding service! Thank you very much for all your help.

You score 100% on both sites. I'm impressed with your service.

February 07, 2002
Thanks millions times

February 06, 2002
You folks offer an incredible service. I directed my mother to you before Christmas and she bought my new GPS 76 from you.

February 05, 2002
Thank you very, very much. The difference between merely a good and a really great company is service like this.

February 02, 2002
Love dealing with you folks. Happy happy happy. One suggestion how about posting a pic of the staff there, would be nice to see with whom I am so happy with.

February 01, 2002
I've recommended GPSCentral to several friends since purchasing my Legend from you a while ago.

January 30, 2002
Just to let you know it arrived this morning. What fantastic service.

January 29, 2002
Garmin Technical Support referred me to you

January 19, 2002
Thanks for the quick response. I certainly will recommend your company to my friends and associates.

January 16, 2002
Thanks so much for your help and shipping arrangements. It is nice to do business with people who know what they are doing and how to get things done! If we get up in your country this summer we will try and stop in - you should be easy to find now that I have a good portable GPS.

January 09, 2002
I would like to express how impressed I continue to be with your customer service, for the following reasons: Promptness: my order was processed (as usual) extremely promptly. Total time from sending the unit from Ottawa to Calgary, and getting the new unit back to me : 5 business days. Friendliness: clear, courteous, not ever adversarial, and, most of all, always willing to bend over backward to accommodate a customer. This is *rare*. Case in point - this whole unit exchange process. Low prices (icing on the cake) Good, solid, professional on-line presence with proper on-line ordering capabilities.

January 09, 2002
Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks !! Wasn't sure about what mount I needed for my Legend so I called your 1-800 number.... Your staff was very helpful and pointed me in the direction of a ram mount (suggested for snowmobiling) The mount surpassed my expectations....I'm very pleased with it !

January 05, 2002
You Gal I spoke to was very friendly and was happy to help answer my questions. I bought from you because of her.

January 03, 2002
Just a note to let you folks know that I have been very impressed with your business so far. The eTrex Legend I purchased online on Dec 26, 2001 was delivered to my door by Dec 28, 2001. The unit works very well and has already surpassed my expectations about its usability. I will not hesitate to refer friends and colleagues to your website and will certainly consider you if I need to purchase additional equipment. Thanks again,
Dr B

December 29, 2001
It was easy to recommend you because we were very satisfied when we bought the GPS equipment. I feel the prompt service is important as well as good pricing. Happy New Year ... and all the best.

December 27, 2001
Thanks for the Great service and I will not hesitate to deal with you in the future. .

December 25, 2001
To GARMIN: I just wanted to tell you how very happy I am with your product, the E-map that I purchased a few months ago. Yesterday we gave my 78 year old father a GPS 176C and he loves it. I don't think we will be seeing him for some time as he will be on the road so much playing with it! I also want to mention and the amazing service I have received from the whole staff since getting into this activity. The service is second to none and they are always there when I need them to answer whatever question I may have about operating the unit, purchasing maps or other accessories. I have been recommending your product and their service to everyone I speak to about this.

December 25, 2001
received shipment yesterday. wonderful service. i will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

December 18, 2001
I just wanted to thank you guys for staying open late on a Friday evening so that I could pick up my new GPS V personally. Not only did you do that but you stayed on and helped me download maps etc.
TO POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS: You will not find better prices or better service anywhere!!
Kevin F

December 17, 2001
This is to thank you for all the help in setting up my StreetPilot III. It was a pleasure dealing with you. The unit arrived next day from Alberta to Nova Scotia. What a service!
Dr. V.

December 14, 2001
Thank you VERY much!! it's a little late in the season to be ordering a unit now, but I will certainly be back in touch once the lakes become a bit more fluid (actually, we STILL don't have ice here this year - weird!). I truly look forward to doing business with you in the new year. Merry Christmas and all that.

December 3, 2001
Just a quick note to say thank you, for the fantastic service (and price!) on my new Garmin Etrex Legend. I just received the unit this afternoon, after placing my order online at midnight last night. Now, that's performance! And the Legend is just great. It is smaller and more feature-packed than I first thought. What a great surprise in this day and age of advertisers typically sticking it to us, the consumers. Thanks, again. I will be back online soon to pick up some accessories.

November 13, 2001
Everything is here. Nice doing business with you. I've bought quite a lot online and should say you are one of the best online stores I've used.

October 31, 2001
Thank you very much for your excellent customer service and prompt responses. It has been a pleasure dealing with you at GPS Central. Our future GPS equipment needs will definitely be dealt with through here! Thank you so much!

October 29, 2001
Thanks for your excellent customer service. I really appreciate it. I'll definitely refer people your way.

October 25, 2001
i would also like to thank you for the excellent service i have had using your company and i will recommend it to my many fellow bikers who do off road and require a gps.

October 17, 2001
Not sure if you remember me, but thought I'd send along a note of thanks. I arranged with you and Ian to come give a demo of the Vista and Legend and Emap to us at our company back in May. Soon after that, I purchased a Vista from you, and one of my co-workers bought one as well. I thought that I'd give you a little update. Since receiving so much help from GPSCentral with programs and accessories, my experience with the Vista has been nothing short of amazing. As an avid hunter and sportsman, I thought that I had a pretty good sense of direction. But after hunting in a totally different area of Alberta, and being stuck out in the wilderness until after dark one night, the Vista brought me straight back to camp, and prevented an unwanted, cold, sleepless night in the woods. Thanks so much for everything, and keep up the great work. It's nice to see that someone still believes that the customer comes first.

September 17, 2001
Wow! What service from you and Canada Post. I received the shipment this morning (Monday).
John [John's shipment was sent on Friday by Expedited Parcel service to Toronto]

September 16, 2001
By the way, I am very pleased with my dealings with GPS Central, and your active presence in the newsgroup is a real plus! I won't hesitate to highly recommend GPS Central to all my friends and associates.

Thanks! You are REALLY good! You guys deserve to get rich! I will do my part to help!

September 7, 2001
Thanks for your feedback. The replacement unit is working well & I really appreciate your great customer service that you have provided! It has been a very positive experience dealing with GPS Central & yourself.

I have recently purchased an eTrex Legend w/MapSource from your store. I received my new GPS within 2 days (Cornwall, Ont.) and everything was perfect! Your prices are the lowest I've ever seen, and your selection of GPS and accessories is unbeatable. I will soon be placing an order for accesories for my eTrex and will be back to your site for any future needs. I've recommended your site to 3 people who plan on purchasing in the near future.
Very satisfied customer, John

August 25, 2001
Thanks! Great service as usual!

August 15, 2001
Last Tuesday my wife thought she had just bought me a very expensive toy [GPSMAP 76]. She was somewhat amazed at the way it could track, but it wasn't until our trip on Friday that things changed. She started slowly, but by the time we had reached Conrad, MT she was marking waypoints, changing the setup, etc. The next day, we lost our way in Casper (they only signpost two-digit highways in town) so she zoomed in, found where we were and guided me to the right highway. An hour later our State Highway became a dirt track (still on the map, though). Suddenly, she saw the marker was no longer on the marked highway. We turned and found we had missed an unmarked 300 degree right turn (an unmapped track continued the Highway). So that saved us an enormous amount of lost time. Who knows when we would have realized we were not on the right road? Then she found we could find the elevations at various points on our land and she's really happy now. With the detailed uploads from the CD ROM there is no need to operate the laptop in the car. I think I sold three people on the idea of getting one. Thanks for your advice.

August 10, 2001
Once again thank you for the great service. I have found the blue charts for this unit [GPSMAP 176C] to be an accurate reproduction of the charts for the south shores of Lake Huron. All reefs in my boating area are where they are supposed to be!!! This is crucial as the shores are literally studded with reefs. It has turned out to be almost too useful as I become to rely on it.

August 9, 2001
Many thanks, you got my vote for any future business. I'll spread the word around Ottawa also.

July 25, 2001
Both the 12XL and the cable have arrived safely. I'm still playing with them will let you know how things turn out. Thanks for all your help. GPS Central has great service and your turnaround time was great too!
Best Wishes, Hussein

July 19, 2001
Excellent, friendly, reliable customer service is the name of the game, and that name is GPS Central. I tell everyone looking for a GPS unit or accessories to try you guys first. A VERY satisfied customer!
July 20, 2001
You mentioned the other day that it's funny I had such high praise for your company when you mixed up my order. I think the reason being is that you didn't lie about it and took responsibility for the mistake. So many places now just try to blame the consumer and don't care about customer service. It's very rare and I hope you never lose that part of the integrity which is so appealing to your clients.
Steve [We had sent Steve the wrong MapSource CD, but quickly sent the correct one to him -- he ended up buying the other one at a discount as well.]

July 13, 2001
I would like to express my thanks to yourself and GPS Central for the excellent service you have provided. I am extremely impressed with your client service practices, the company return policy and the time frames in receiving both the original and replacement GPS units. I will definitely recommend your company to all I encounter who are interested in purchasing GPS units.
Yours truly, Ken [Thank you, Ken, for the appreciative message you also sent to GARMIN]

June 29, 2001
That was just a test! You passed with flying colors. You could have sent me back a long list of goodies. You are obviously a nice, honorable and upstanding individual - probably why people like to deal with you. I hope you sell millions and MILLIONS of units!
Fred [who had sent email asking if we could think of any other accessories he might need]

June 27, 2001
Hi, I ordered an eTrex car mount yesterday morning by phone. The package already arrived! Thank you for your quick shipping and tremendous help over the phone! You can be sure I will order from GPSCentral again!
Sincerely, Daniel

June 20, 2001
I received my order on Monday, June 18th, exactly two business days after placing it. Both the merchandise and your service have proved very satisfactory. In the future, I will definitely recommend your company to others. Keep up the good work!

June 18, 2001
I have been very impressed with your level of service and support, by word of mouth. "A" who sits nearby purchased a Etrex Summit (then Vista), and mentioned where, then "M" picked up a Colour Streetpilot. Both these guys sit near me at work and I was convinced of your commitment to service. When I was about to order I spotted Freds Emap ( another great service; Thanks!). Most of my usage is probably outdoor, so I will probably resell the Emap and get an etrex model at some point. I will definitely purchase from you.

June 14, 2001
Thanks for the extra investigation on using City Nav maps on the Vista. You REALLY know what customer service is! This is a REALLY big differentiator regardless of the product you are selling. Most people just don't seem to care.

June 14, 2001
Just to let you know for the record, that I am and was VERY satisfied with your service as a company and as a person (dealing with Jo :)). I try to persuade people to buy from you guys since I know the service is excellent and prices are difficult to match. GPS Legend which I got from you, come in a PERFECT condition and now gives me a lot of fun. Just an idea for you guys: it will be nice if you can come up with some sort of sticker so I can stick it on my GPS and proudly show from whom I bought my receiver. I wouldn't mind to have baseball cap or T-shirt if you plan those things in a future.

May 22, 2001
Bonjour Ian, je te f?licite car ton fran?ais est tr?s bien, continue comme cela et tu vas devenir meilleur que moi. Merci beaucoup et peut-?tre qu'on aura l'occasion de faire d'autre achat chez-vous.
André [Many French-speaking customers appreciate Ian's email and phone conversations with them in their preferred language]

April 30, 2001
Thank you very much for the time you've spent trying to solve this little problem. Your sales support is excellent and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a GPS.
Jim [Jim had received a Legend that refused to display the correct date]

April 24, 2001
Upon trying to contact you via email [at our old email address which no longer reaches us], I received no responses to several emails. When I finally called the 1-800 number, the wonderful lady on the phone was very apologetic, and explained the situation to me (now You should thank her, since she calmed me down, and restored my faith in customer service.

April 03, 2001
If it's NOT too late, could you make my order the bundle with the CDN Mapsource map CD, for another $125
April 03, 2001
Your Vista was shipped today, but if you like we can send you a MapSource Canada CD for $125.

April 04, 2001
Actually , given the bundle pricing of $599, I think I should be able to talk you into $120 for the CD, but please do send ASAP. XPressPost please !! Many, many thanks, your customer service is awesome!!
April 04.2001
Oops, of course the bundle price for the MapSource Canada CD with the Vista should be $120. The CD will be on its way to you today.

April 13, 2001
While I received the Vista GPS shortly after my last e-mail, I have yet to see hide nor hair of the CDN Map CD ... I am assuming it went out, as scheduled per your e-mail!!
April 13, 2001
So much for awesome customer service! I totally messed up on this one and it wasn't sent out :-( However, the order has now been processed and packed and will leave Calgary by Xpresspost as soon as CPC allows. We won't charge you anything for shipping since we didn't deliver on time and I've taken an extra $5 off the price of the CD (now $115.00) as a token of apology for my oversight.

April 14, 2001
Thanks for the update! I disagree though ... it's still awesome service! We all forget things ocassionally, or make mistakes, but the difference is what we do about it! You realized the problem, and acted to correct it ASAP, without any excuses! A little story for you about bad customer service... [...] You can imagine what I think of them now!! I think Mr J, XXX dealer, should look at your example!

April 18, 2001
Its good to know about your great customer service, so I know where to order when I return to North America next year!

April 7, 2001
Thanks for all the help and understanding,hope to talk to you in the future and perhaps meet you when I move out there in the fall.

April 5, 2001
Hi there - if you could pass on my email address to this contact in Ireland and say if they feel comfortable talking with me, I'd love to find our a little more about how I can take the topo maps and more detail about the Irish grid.
[We passed on the email address as requested, he received the info he wanted, and we received the following:]
April 5, 2001
Wow - thanks *SO* much! This is fantastic - never would I have though you guys would have been so helpful. Much appreciated.
April 5, 2001
That's great. And I'm glad I could help Nick. Definitely go ahead and send it. I really appreciate your special attention once again!!

Thanks for the fast reply! :) i'm impressed!! never seen anyone so dedicated to their business that they are up this late answering! if there's anywhere to praise please do let me know :)

I just received the shipment of the carry case and handlebar mount this morning. Now that is faaaaaaaaaaast. I shipped you back the Garmin handlebar mount (won't be nearly as fast as yours) this morning so you should receive it in a day or so. thank-you for the excellent service.

January 31, 2001
I received my GPS this morning via Purolator and felt the need to thank you for the extra service. If you need a testimonial, just let me know.

January 20, 2001
I received the unit last night (Friday). Thank you very much for your prompt service on this. Don't worry about the mistake, we all make mistakes. When I deal with someone who makes mistakes at I know I am dealing with someone who is human, and makes mistakes just like me. (Of course there are always those poeple who make mistakes but are convinced they don't, those are the ones that fool you by walking upright!) Super recovery Jo, and Great Service, and I intend to deal with you again.
Michael [We goofed and sent Michael's special order to someone else with exactly the same name, but were able to get another item to him from Garmin within just a few days.]

Anyone who would buy from you must be an absolute IDIOT. Also, your 800 number connects to some doctors office? Doesn't really give the customer any reason to believe that your not just a scam. Build a proper e-commerce site and show your customers that you are a reputable business!!!! Disgusted, e-commerce knowledged .......Name: You have my IP address... figure it out yourself.

The small number of e-commerce sites (and any other business for that matter) that do respond to their customers do not, in any way, compare to the level of customer service that you provide. You have astounded me with your high level of professionalism, knowledge and courtesy (and patience). You are such an asset to your company and I must ask that you foward this to your management so that they fully realize how fortunate they are to have an employee such as yourself. I thank you so very much and I am looking foward to speaking to you again next week.

December 9, 2000
You score 10 out of 10 for Customer service!

CommentType: Praise ......Topic: Customer Service ...
Once again, you folks have astounded me! Our supply depot just called me to advise that the e-map and accessories I had ordered were here already. Well done! I had thought earlier this morning that I should have included a separate order of a case for my own emap, and had it included in the package delivery. I guess I should have been as quick with my dialing finger as I should have known you would be with your delivery. Thanks again for the great service.

December 1, 2000
My communications with "Jo" were a big factor in my decision to purchase an eTrex GPS from your company. I thank Jo, and I thank you, for making this kind of direct customer service, even before a purchase, so informative and pleasant.

November 11, 2000
I have just received the GPS, thank you for your prompt attention, and for making this a very pleasant experience..(buying online), I shall recommend you to anyone I come into contact with looking for any GPS equiupment.

October 4, 2000
I wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for what, in these times, is extraordinary service! When I contacted you about a mount for my e-map, you were not only willing to supply one, you were more than accomodating in actually delivering it to my home! To say that I'm astounded is an understatement. With that kind of service, I will never be dealing with anyone else on GPS products again! Once again, thank you. I am VERY impressed!
