Excited for the Boat Show

Annapolis Sail Show starts and runs through Monday of the following week 10/14.  We will be in Booth B40, at the Show. Last week Garmin came a calling with a new 35′ Contender and three 300 hp Yamahas and of course all the latest Garmin electronics.  We all had an opportunity to cruise the Intercoastal Waterway and see how everything worked.  The help used twin GPSMAP 8617 and the sounder was a GSD 25 with CHIRP transducer.  Radar was a Phantom 24, with Sirius weather and Fusion entertainment, and of course a reactor 40 Autopilot, Quite the package. but to know the truth there wasn’t a person who works here that could not have specked out what was needed to install and operate it.  Just great the a company like Garmin thinks enough of our store to offer this opportunity.  Thanks again to Brandon and David for giving us the opportunity to see your stuff in action.  Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more.

Calm before the storm

It does seem like things are calm here at The GPS Store after hurricane Dorian left its mark.  Deliveries have sorted themselves out and products are arriving now to support our sales at the Annapolis Sail Boat Show running Oct 10 thru 14.  If you are in the area and looking for marine electronics it is a great time to buy with huge discounts supported by the manufacturers.  Manufacture Restricted Prices or MRP are waved for purchases made at the show, which makes it a great time to buy.  We will be there in Tent B40, so come by and check us out.  Brian, Scott and Philip will be on duty.  We can also be seen on Facebook and Twitter.

We dodged another one

Hurricane Dorian blew by us just off the coast so we avoided a lot of damage and only received the rain which was enough to flood some of our main roads as well as back roads.  No deaths here so all is good today. Well Scott and Brian are gearing us for the Annapolis Sail Boat Show in early October so that usually ends our one slower period of the year because once that it over it will be Christmas Season starting with Black Friday sales.  Great to stay busy all year long these days.  When I started we weren’t the presence in the marine industry we are now so we would have about a month of slow sales, not so anymore though.  Well I will be back to you next week but until then check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
