are a few comments we've received from our customers.
They are all real, and unedited except to remove last names and addresses:
|We are very pleased with the GPS units, they are eay to use and very accurate with directions. They help us to provide the service required quick and safe to county residents.
|The package arrived yesterday - thank you very much. I've heard nothing but good things about Prairie Geomatics and the prompt and excellent service has proven what I have heard to be true.
I recently purchased a Garmin 76 CSx GPS unit from your organization and would
like to commend you on the first rate service.
I am extremely impressed with how fast the order was processed and shipped out.
I highly recommend your organization and will continue to do business with Prairie
Geomatics Ltd for any future needs.
I just wanted you to know I received the parcel today, March 28th and
ordered it yesterday. Not only are you prices good but your service is
great too. My Vista that I bought from you years ago is still doing its
|Thanks for making it so easy. You cannot imagine what I
went through before I got your website: horrible dealings with eBay, complete
frustration with Garmin's website. I had nearly given up when a local computer
company gave me your address.
Thanks so much!
The GPS arrived safe and sound yesterday. Thanks for the prompt service.
|They arrived today! Fantastic service, shipping, everything!
I'll be spreading the word about your site to my techie friends. Great
prices too. Thanks for the reduced shipping price. You can let people know
that even with the regular parcel post, it arrived in Winnipeg in 1 day!
|Art - thanks for your prompt action
I received the antenna yesterday (Weds) in London Ont, 2 business days
after you shipped. Now it's time to plug in and play!
Everything received in good order and thanks so much for your excellent
communication as well as great products!
I'll be back!
received the Garmin we ordered today. Thank you for your excellent
you !! I received my charger and it work good. This transaction went
really simple & if I need anything else I'll be sure to look you up.
wanted to pass on a big thanks for the great sales staff and quick
shipping. Received my new unit today and it works great.
I had been dealing
with two other stores (both actually higher priced for this unit),
and neither of them were able to answer specific questions I had about
this unit, nor could they give me any indications when these units
would be in stock. Staff at both stores made me feel like I was "bothering" them.
Your sales staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and able to quickly
answer my questions.
|Hello, I just recieved an e-mail from Canada Post that you had requested be sent to notify me it is ready to be picked up.
I have already picked up the unit on Monday July 17. Excellent.
Thank you for the excellent service and prompt replies.
| Hi Barbara,
Just to let you know how pleased I am with your support. As prommised, the parcel did arrive this morning at 11 :00 and everything seems to be in order. Now comes the hard part : try to understand both Mapsource and POI stuff and the GPS itself!.
I'm a very difficult
customer and very hard to please but sofar you and your team have outperformed
my highest expectations!
Thank you for your email and I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I have been out of town for a week and have just arrived home and picked up the package. The unit looks to be in good condition and well packaged.
Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. I will be using your business again in the future.

Thanks again B. T.
a problem Barb - we appreciated your efforts during "March Madness" -
I know this was a very hectic time for both you and Art.
The guys absolutely love the Street Pilot! It is
an outstanding piece of kit that has already helped us on several
occasions.! It is especially useful during the night in both
the big city and the wide open spaces. Program a route, trust
the equipment and voila - you are at your destination!
| Hi Barb,
Has anyone told you lately just how awesome you are? Well, if noone has
then I will now ...Barb? You are awesome. Thanks you so much for the
great detective work re: GPS Magellan 315. Barb? Have a great afternoon
The StreetPilot III arrived on Saturday past in fine shape. It was well
packed and came through faster than expected. Also, THANKS for the great
carrying bag for the unit! Now for the learning curve. K.C.
anxiously awaiting our GPS units, I have been browsing your site. Very
informative, easy to manoeuvre yet packed with detail...
..... you clever dog you! The upgrade worked fine.
Thanks again.. A
Remember I am in the Halifax area.... if there is anything I can do...
just let me know.
very much for the great service Barb. Very refreshing to find an online
supplier who provides personal service.
just got my g p s etc. opened the box everything seems to be there, i'll
start watching the video and learn how to use it. i want to thank you for
the excellent service
Just a note to let you know that I received the Etrex Vista this past Thursday
(I ordered it on Tuesday). Thanks for the very prompt shipping and
it certainly was a pleasure doing business with you. I'll certainly
recommend you to anyone looking for a GPS.
Have a great week !
Just wanted to let you know that I received my order (GPS 76 & Gillson
antenna). I was really impressed with the time it took these items to get
delivered. I ordered them near mid day on Thursday Jan. 15, and received
them Monday Jan 19. Fantastic service.
This is just a quick note to let you know that I received my package yesterday
morning in a perfectly operational condition. Air mail delivery took just
6 days and a night (given the time zone difference), which is very good
(better than I'd expected). I didn't have to pay any duties or taxes.
Thank you for your service, N
Accept my many thanks for your response and willingness to share information
with others. What you have provided me with cleared a lot of matters which
were very confusing.
Thank you for your great service. I am truly very impressed. It's rare
to find a company that is as personal, with prices and service as fantastic
as yours. Please keep me in mind if you should ever have any upcoming sales,
especially ones that include the Garmin IQue 3600.
Art for the good service - some companies here in Aussie could learn
a few lessons from you people in Canada.
| Thank you
for your speedy and helpful replies. The package actually arrived before
I had a chance to check with Canada Post about the arrival time. I
had ordered the unit from another supplier and waited 4 days with no
reply from them. They had promised 3 day shipping. I decided to take
a risk and order it from you as well. They phoned me the day after
the unit from you arrived to check my address. I was happy to cancel
my order with them. Thank you again for your excellent service and
I just wanted
to let you know that my Otterbox case arrived safe and sound today.
Thank you for the quick uptake on that for your personal involvement.
It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
me know if you have any sort of feedback forum, so that I can give
you an A++ rating. :)
| Hi Art,
Just a quick email to let you know that I picked up the Otter Box from
the post office Friday afternoon. It's going to suit my application
perfectly and is a very nice product. Thanks for your great service.
I recently visited your website and found it to be very informative.
Thanks for the info Art! I would like to purchase two of the GPS 12XL units.
Both with the standard accessories.
A note to say I have received the Garmin GPSmap 76 and it works great.
Thanks again for your fantastic service!
I look forward to working with you in the future and will continue
to send others your way.
Greetings from Timmins...
Thanks for sending along the book [GPS Made Easy]....well worth reading
cover to cover.
| Dear Art,
for answering patiently, my questions!
And for loading up the cartridges for us.
Best wished for the New Year to you.
If you recall
I purchased the StreetPilot III from you earlier this month. In one
of our phone conversations I mentioned that we were going on a trip
to spend a few days around San Francisco and a week in the Sonoma/Napa
Valleys. We rented a van and I plunked the StreetPilot III on the dash.
The unit is unbelievable. I was very impressed and I basically knew
what to expect. The other 9 members of our group were flabergasted!
They even started calling her "Rosa" as the unit ploted
the route to Santa Rosa and the name stuck for the duration of the
trip. It took us straight to 20 wineries and 9 restaurants. Some restaurants
were found after dark and it would have been very difficult to locate
them, even with a map. I drove around San Francisco like I was a taxi
driver. I think what impressed them most was when we first arrived,
we stopped at a wine warehouse and they were not aware that before
we left the parking lot, I entered the spot as a waypoint. At the end
of our trip when we were 50 miles away from SF and heading back to
the city, they wanted to return to the warehouse and said we'd never
find it. However, "Rosa" took us directly to the parking lot! If you
ever need a testimonial on this exceptional unit, I'm your man.
your help with my order. I just wanted to let you know that Canada
Post did deliver it yesterday. You've made me look like a big hero,
which is never a bad thing. I will definitely be back to you the next
time I need some more gps equipment, and I'm spreading the word about
your wonderful service.
The package arrived and everything was ok. Thanks!
Just a quick word to let you know that I have received my unit, I have
loaded it and it works great. Many thanks for your help and advice.
I have just returned from a week in the field and wanted to let you know
how pleased I am with my Garmin GPSMAP 76S system. I read the manual, took
a 30 minute street walk with the GPS, and headed into the field the next
day. It is easy to use (no steep learning curve), and I almost always had
3D differential GPS, even under dense forest canopy (DGPS beacon) and within
a BC Hydro transmission corridor (where I switched to WAAS). The backpack
kit is well designed and constructed and is not something I could have
pulled together on my own. It is an excellent product!
The Garmin MapSource program is also easy to use, and my waypoints uploaded
to my PC first time without incident. The Ozzie Explorer I have installed,
but not yet tried - I have requested a georeferenced orthophoto map file
from the cartographic company that does my mapping and will try the software
later this week when it arrives.
I can see that it would also be nice to have an external antenna (with
magnetic mount) and a RAM mount for my truck and plan to add these to my
