Vacation time

Yup, I am taking a vacation to spend time with family and friends.  I know anyone who reads this post will like me keep the people at WDBJ in Roanoke in their prayers and to their family and friends we at The GPS Store send our deepest sympathies.  It is going to be a struggle […]

Backup and tune up

Well most of the anglers out there have been fishing all summer and probably found a few, if not more, fishing spots that they have marked on their plotters.  Well if you haven’t thought of it yet here is a reminder to backup your waypoints.  If your chartplotter dies, or you lose your boat for […]

Forrest Wood Cup Results

Big weekend at the FLW, Forest Wood Cup for Garmin as they notched two finishers in the top 5 using their Panoptix transducer and LakeVu Ultra HD charting.   This is really quite remarkable considering that Garmin really wasn’t much of a threat to Lowrance’s freshwater dominance, but times and equipment may be changing.  Our […]

Yes we are congratulating our Boss and president of The GPS Store Drew who has a new CD out with his Band “Bailout” and the title is “Postcard”.  It is really cool to be around people with so many talents, makes me feel young.  Garmin’s blog had a lot to say on the use of […]

Mid week for some but end for me

Wednesday and we are over the hump here.  Everyone back at their desk except for Brian who is on a much needed vacation with his wife and daughter but he will be back on Monday. Panoptix is finding its way into tournament fishing and anglers are using it in different ways not only to find […]

On Tuesday

Yes i am here on Tuesday to surprise you, well not really, we have a couple of people out on the sales floor so I just might get to answer the phone and talk to our customers which I used to do everyday.  It is the contact with you that i miss the most about […]

Glad to be back.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  The weather in the Carolinas was absolutely perfect, at least in the morning.  It was nice to see low 70′s again in the morning although it did get close to 90 in the afternoon.  It isn’t going to be long before we start seeing school buses again as […]

The Weekend is here

My week is winding down and I hope everyone has a plan about what they would like to do this weekend, even if it is nothing.  It is a good time here at the store for anyone who wants to ask us a question about GPS or marine equipment we have the time and welcome […]
