New Products, Inventory Update and Time on the Water!

It’s been a busy week here at The GPS Store, Inc. New Fusion Signature Series 3i Speakers were released. These new speakers provide an improved marinized water resistant connectors and improved grills. We also had the opportunity to spent time with the Raymarine team learning about their new YachtSense Link Marine Cloud Router (expected in our warehouse in the next week). The Link Marine Cloud Router is part of their full YachtSense line. Garmin LiveScope Plus sonar systems are currently in stock- and ready to ship. If you’re in need of a new setup including display and LiveScope Plus, you may want to check out our Value Bundles. And finally, we even found time to get on the water!

We hope you get the chance to spend time on the water this weekend- and maybe even catch some fish!

June’s Wild Weather is Here…

This time of the year is prime time for wild weather including Hurricanes, Tornados and extreme heat. Take a look at this waterspout sighted about 50 miles off the coast of North Carolina this weekend. The GPS Store’s own Scott Heffernan snapped this photo while fishing a tournament this past Saturday.
