After Christmas GPS Sales

xmas sale

Christmas is over, which means… you guessed it… more sales! Several different companies are hosting their Boxing Day sales or doing After Christmas rollbacks on prices to try and empty out that excess inventory and bank on all of that Christmas cash you were gifted during the holiday season.

There are a ton of deals going on, but here are a few that caught my eye: read more

Last Chance for Garmin Cyber Deals


Cyber Week is half over, so I hope most of you have finished all of the electronics shopping. Just as a reminder, Garmin’s cyber deals are going to end today at 11:59 p.m. CST so if you wanted to purchase something on sale, this is the time!

The deal that really caught my attention was the Nuvi Lifetime Map subscription for $40 (normally priced at $90). If you purchased an older unit that doesn’t have lifetime maps, this is an excellent deal that will easily triple the life of your existing unit. I highly recommend it.

Here are some other deals from Garmin that will be ending today: read more

Pre-Black Friday Deals on GPS and Navigation

Black Friday week GPS deals at Amazon

While Black Friday is one of the best times to purchase otherwise expensive electronics like GPS units, I normally can’t stand the rush and the crowds. Even with the phoenominal sales, it usually just isn’t worth the insane rush and the rude people.

If you’re anything like me, then why not check out these fantastic pre-Black Friday (or, more accurately, pre-Cyber Monday) sales that are going on right now? read more

Aldi Offers Deal on Multi-Sport GPS Watch

GPS watch

GPS of any kind can be terribly expensive, but this Sunday Aldi will be offering their multi-sport GPS watch for a bargain. Priced at £65, this watch, unfortunately, appears to only be offered in the UK and has several impressive features for the price. The creatively named Unisex GPS Watch has five different training modes for running, hiking, cycling, sailing and a blank mode for users to create their own.  The watch offers GPS navigation with waypoints, distance and speed measurement as well as a compass, an altimeter and the ability to track pace and time goals. The watch comes with a chest strap to measure heart rate, a bike mount, a USB data transfer cable and some software to help evaluate data. It’s water resistant and comes in three colors with a free three year warranty and a 60 day return policy–I’m not sure what else you could ask for that price.

This isn’t Aldi’s first trek into the world of GPS watches, so hopefully it will be available in other countries soon! If you want it, though, you’ll have to get there early.
