Thread: GPS devices at Mardens for CHEAP!

  1. #1

    Thumbs up GPS devices at Mardens for CHEAP!

    I stopped into the new Marden's super-store in Scarborough, Maine today. I had been told by someone that they had GPS devices for rather cheap....

    ... that was an understatement! They have a selection of GPS devices to rival LL Beans or Cabellas, and for dirt cheap prices! I myself bought a Garmin Oregon 450t for $210.00 + tax! They also have a 30 day return policy with a receipt.....

    Other devices I saw were a lot of Garmin 60CSx units, Garmin Dakotas, Delorme PN-40s, some Magellans, a whole bunch of various eTrex models, a few other levels of Oregons, including an Oregon 550t still in the box for $400.00, Lowrances, and some I didn't recognize.

    They also had an extensive selection of various car navigation systems including Nuvis and TomToms, and if you are a fisherman as well, they have some great deals on Lowrances.

    If anyone is looking for a GOOD cheap unit, check them out! Or if you know of anyone who may have asked about where to find these types of units for cheap, let them know!

    I'll try to take a look. My finances are in shambles at the moment, though.

    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    Yes Dick and Brad.... I did buy an Oregon 450t... it was CHEAP, I wanted a back up unit that didn't require constant attention and could operate without all the complex stuff I have to do with the PN, and I wanted to have a good one that was easy to use for my girlfriend to use when we go caching, so she can feel included ha ha.... 200 is not bad for an Oregon 450t....

    Marden's has a wonderful return policy. Happy to hear of the bargins - remember - "I should have bought it when I saw it at Marden's". Things don't last long.

    All but a couple from the huge stack of Pelican boxes I saw in Ellsworth on Sunday were gone today. No backpacks left and they had everything from Keltys on down. Some serious camping and other inventory has gone out the door..........I suspect in the other stores too.

    Damn, and here I thought my finances were screwed up from having a fire in our apartment building and having to deal with all the expenses of that (there was stuff that wasn't covered by insurance, stuff that city ordinances said we had to do). And having to deal with mold in an enclosed porch. And having a "reliable" tenant stiff us on three months rent.

    Hmmm . . . I may make a trip down tomorrow.

    A few questions though:

    1) Where exactly in Scarborough is Mardens located?
    2) Is there much of a difference in the Oregon 450T and 550T?
