Enter to Win at Garmin eTrex 30


If you spend any time outdoors, you'd probably appreciate a new Garmin eTrex 30 handheld GPS. The new eTrex 30 offers color screen in 64K colors, mapping capability with a 3-axis electronic compass, barometric altimeter, and the water resistance to take a dip in a stream or guide you though that occasional downpour that we've all been through when trying to make it to shelter. The contest is open from now through June 11, and is sponsored by Outside Magazine.

Someone is going to win, it might as well be a reader of

Win a SPOT Satellite Messenger Emergency Tracker GPS


I tweeted this earlier today, and wanted to post a link to the page too. If you enjoy the back country, you should consider a SPOT Tracking GPS. The SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger
allows you to send an SOS message to authorities, a personal message to friends, or an "I/'m OK" message through a satellite system not through a cellular system. So, no matter how far you are out there, you can still get word back on your status.

Head over to GPS for Today to enter

Win a Garmin Nuvi 200 - Tim Horton's Roll-Up


Gotta love a free GPS; well Tim Horton's is giving away 5,000 Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS navigation devices, as well as some other things like coffee, Toyota Matrix and a few boats. The contest is based on getting a coffee cup, and rolling up the coffee cup rim to see what you've won; odds are 1 in 9 that you win something (like a free coffee or better). There are alternate ways of entering other than breaking into a Tim Horton's and stealing a case of cups, like mailing away for a free entry. See their contest rules for details (pdf link).

If you want to donate to the PMC, you can through the TomTom webpage on the PMC site; just click "Make an eGift" on the right side of the page.

Win A Garmin Nuvi 350

Love these contests that give away GPS units, especially good ones. This one comes from Travel and Leisure magazine. You just need to write in about a great road trip.... in either North America or Europe. What do they say at Staples? "That was Easy."

Get Married - Get a Free Nuvi 350

Yea, there's a catch, you have to get married in WalMart. Walmart is giving away a wedding package to seven couples who will walk down the WalMart aisle on 07/07/07, and receive a prize package worth more than $5,000 (Why didn't they make it worth $7,777?). Anyway, one of the items in the package is a Garmin Nuvi 350.

So think about it, you can either get married in a WalMart and get a free Nuvi 350, or you could plunk down the $399 and skip the "dream" package.

Free TomTom ONE


I love the recent price cut on the TomTom ONE that lowered the price to below $300, well how about a free TomTom ONE. TomTom generously donated a TomTom ONE as a give away for a contest running over at the TomTomForums (unaffiliated with the TomTom company). So go on over to the forums and check them out to see what the rules are to get a free TomTom ONE.
