I wanted to get a DEDICATED GPS brick and mortar store POI going for all those that need accessories, and perhaps replacement units etc. while on the road.
These stores sell nothing but GPS'.
I've started with a few Canadian stores for now, but if you can post US as well, I'll add them and get it up-to-date.
• Address and Postal Code or ZIP
• phone number
• Lat / Long coordinates
The POI is here: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27326
I'll do some research, but I'm not sure if we have any/many "dedicated GPS" stores out here -- sounds suspiciously like you expect these places to actually understand the products they sell, and possibly even service!
That excludes Fry's Electronics and Best Buy right off the bat...
REI carries a pretty good range of GPS gear, as well as real maps, and their people do know and understand the products they carry.
I realize this may be a formidable task, which is why I chose it!
I think we need this POI for the folks that are hardcore users. Hence, my task is set.
Thanks for all help that's given!
To locate addresses for brick and mortar stores dedicated to only selling GPS products, you might be able to use Google Maps categories. Google Maps has two related categories:
Category: GPS Navigation Systems & Services (Mfrs)
Category: GPS Supplier
My guess is that this is going to be a VERY small POI list!!
But I hope not. However, it may help someone out!
