MegaGPS.com, an online retail site based in Alpine, Utah, is dedicated entirely to navigation products and accessories. The e-tailer categorizes its products according to lifestyle such as For the Road, For the Water and For Smartphones. Garmin, Magellan and TomTom are the major players, said Clint Bishop, a company sales executive. A wholesale business since 1979, MegaGPS.com offers same-day shipping on devices that include car-mounted units and software.
RadioShack introduced a new service that allows customers to access the chain’s entire online inventory, including all GPS products previously unavailable in stores, for pick up at any location. “During the pilot phase, the ship-to-store option was very popular with our customers,” said Bob Kilinski, RadioShack’s vice president of brand development and communications. “Customers love the extended product assortment...and the convenience of having their orders delivered to their neighborhood RadioShack at no charge.”
RadioShack’s e-tail site also offers an assortment of GPS products and accessories with comparison grids and customer ratings and reviews.
