Apparently, GARMIN 2 years warranty covered across Europe. So no point
for me to pay $1625 in the UK for EU GARMIN 2610 that I could pay
$1300 in Portugal.



http://www.aspidshop.com/export/store/default.php?enterprise_id=5

All our products are brand new, in box, always with the original user
guides in English language. They have a 2 years warranty issued by the
manufacturers, that can be applied in all the countries we ship to.
If after receiving your goods, your products have a mal-function, you
should call our support line within one week and ask for instructions
on how to have a replacement.
The shipping costs will be always supported by the customer,
accordingly to european legislation.

I mailed this company for a price on a garmin gpsmap 60c but they did not reply. however I did phone them for a price delivered to the UK inc 19% vat and they said some one from sales would call me back. About 15 mins later a very nice lady gave me a price of 318 all in which is cheaper than Sportextreme http://www.sportextreme.com/pq228/ .The latter co has a free phone number but to ring portugal for apsid I suggest regestering with www.18866.co.uk they charge 1p/min and 1/2p for uk calls

No not yet ! I think you will have to add 19% vat Sad and around 20 euros for delivery to the price you have been quoted but still pretty good though. you won't know how much you have paid in s until you get your credit card bill and your bank has converted to sterling at the rate of the day .At sport extreme quotes are in s and delivery is around a tenner

good luck

EUR 880 (GARMIN 2610)
+ EUR 30 (Delivery)
= EUR 1,082.90
= GBP 715.52 (10 June 2004 exchange rates)
+ GBP 14.31 (2% commission which is max. with credit card payment in Europe with my bank)
= GBP 730 (not too bad considering cheapest price in UK is 890)

Answer from Duarte Braga from WWW.ASPIDSHOP.COM:

we buy all GPS's from Garmin and Magellan European Distributors. All of our Garmin and Magellan products are genuine european versions. They are not modified US versions, so all the basemaps, detailed maps, etc will be the regular european ones. Power supplies will always be 220V regulated.
Prices are the following:
Road Mate 700 - 790.00 (VAT incl)
StreetPilot 2620 - 866.00 (VAT incl)
StreetPilot 2610 - 693.00 (VAT incl)
Be aware that you will be charged in Euros. The prices in GBP considered are based on a EUR/GBP = 0,66

As some competitors in the UK tried to justify the price difference with www.aspidshop.com with some UK specs?, I did contact GARMIN.
For me, there are not such UK specs but there is one single EUROPEAN model.



See Garmin's answer below:



Thank you for your email.

I have not heard of this website, but that is not to say that they do not purchase units off of one of our distributors.

They clearly state that that Street Pilot 2610 on their site is a genuine European unit.

Thank you,
Best regards,

Chris Long.

Just 2c worth from a poor Uk vendor :-)

Sport extreme and Aspid both sell products at less than we can buy them from Garmin UK (however its impossible to contact anyone at Sport Extreme these days). Frenchie (being the best salesman around for Aspid both here and on the newsgroups) is right about the good deal on the pricing and the European spec being the same as the UK (although the eTrex at least is sold in different boxes outside the UK for what its worth).

I am sure that if you are going to buy, then buy reasonably quickly because the price difference is not going to be sustainable for to long; soon all the UK vendors will be rattling the bars of Garmin for a level playing field. Global, GPSWH and ourselves and others would, I am sure, happily be competitive if Garmin reduced the transfer prices in the UK to those that are obviously being given to Sport and Aspid.

Not intended as a gripe nor in fact to try and Justify our prices - just a fact of life that we could buy Garmin products cheaper from Aspid than we can from GArmin themselves!

Received Friday 25 June 04 at 10:00am the Garmin SP2610 after having ordered it on Wednesday 23 June 04 at around 11:00.

Packaging was superb. Genuine Garmin packaging was itself packed up with bubble-wrap and again protected by a further bigger carton packaging, itself firmly scotchtaped by Aspidshop.

Thanks to Aspidshop!

Yes, you've told us this already! Please can you stick to posting in one thread/section about your purchase?

Okay, will keep one in the RETAILERS section (as very happy with ASPIDSHOP) and one in the GARMIN section (to discuss further SP2610) and stop the one in BEGINNER'S LOUNGE.

Even with new competition from TomTom GO that can be found at less than 450 (maps for 1 country only) in the UK, Garmin UK will have to lower its prices.
I would not have paid 900 for a StreetPilot, 700 was enough.
