Ottawa 那里可以买到 In-car portable GPS navigator,或者 PDA integrated 的也好

比如:

Navman iCQ 360
Garmin StreetPilot
Magellan Roadmate

PDA 的 Garmin iQue 3600 很不错, 可惜是 PalmOS的

请提供他们的价钱是多少? 谢谢 (最近对这个感兴趣)

比如 Walmart USA 就有

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp?product_id=2612115

加拿大好象没有 Walmart 的网站, CanadianTire, Futureshop.ca 都没有 search 出他们来, 不知道是不是摆在店里, 还是要找汽车 dealer 买

还有其他电器店吗? US 有 Bestbuy (最差), Fry's (outpost), Circuit City, MicroCenter, CompUSA, 我都知道他们的价格. 加拿大的我只知道 Futureshop, 孤陋寡闻

Amazon 还是不错, 可惜有时候寄不过来, 还有不知道要不要补税

加拿大的Costco 没有网站

我列 Bestbuy USA 哪个比 Futureshop 那个还先进一点

对了, 除了Futureshop, 还有其他地方可以弄到吗? 这是我关心的.

美国的选择很多, 没时间给你找更好的 deal, 顺便到 Fry's (Outpost) 去看了一下:

http://shop1.outpost.com/product/4078692?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

他们卖是 $149.99

2:
你的算法有问题, 没有加税, Futureshop.ca 是:
$239.99 x 1.15-$20 = $255.99 CAD

美国的税很多地方网上买的免税的, 就算不免, 可以算 8.25%吧

Outpost: 149.99 x 1.0825 = $162.3 USD

最坏情况是差: $40 CAD ($61CAD 如果免税的州)

别忘了, 你还要等几个月的 $20 快钱 rebate, 美国的其他 deal 还没有给你找呢?

后悔去吧

3. 这还不是新的产品, 新的产品, 加拿大不是太贵, 就是没有

刚刚买了个小玩意, 发现美加价格差不多:

Creative MuVo Slim 256MB MP3 Player

futureshop.ca: $239.99 - $20 (rebate) (= $219 CAD)
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pr...&sku_id=0665000FS10042335&catid=&newdeptid=19

amazon.com: $161.99 (= $209 CAD)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...25342-0610233?v=glance&s=electronics&n=172282

算上邮费, 保修, 还是在本地买更方便些。

This stuff is about 4 months old.
How new is new?

What you pointed to is not the same thing, by the way. http://www.creative.com/products/product.asp?prodid=10052

You take much more risks to buy stuff remotely.
If I should regret (后悔) for this, I would have had a lot more things for regreting. I would have died long time ago.

帮你纠正一下:$239.99 - $20 != $219.99
应该是: $239.99 x 1.15% - $20 = $255.99
$255.99 / 1.15% = $222.60
你便宜了: $239.99 - $222.60 = $17.39
而不是 $20

Well, you are right about Electronics and most Asian import. Those prices are cheaper in US because:

1. They are priced in US dollar internationally, and most Canadian retailer was still using the price scheme where 1 US$ = 1.6 C$. The gap will gradually narrow as people adjust to the new reality that 1 US $ is only worth 1.2 ~ 1.3 C$.
2. US has a larger market and economics of scale plays here.

So much for Electronics and we agree US is cheaper. Now another category, health care.

When I was in Ottawa, I used to have a deep cleaning (scale) every 3 months. It costs $130 and is covered in full by Nortel and I didn't pay a cent. And the same procedure in US ? Total $760, and I have to pay $280 out of my own packet. And the insurance only cover the rest once every six months.

So I decided to cut my deep cleaning to once every half year, my health sure suffered because of that. High health care is certainly the reason why Americans live 2.6 years shorter than Canadians.

Bottomline, if you can remain young and healthy forever, you should stay in US forever.

Good points, but do not forget: if you live 2.6 years shorter, you will save a lot of money!

有些东西还是有差加还是很大的,
在Circuit City买了一个SONY HC30摄像机,499USD+5%税(南卡洲),信用卡折成加币=691CAD,一周后特价,变成473USD,去退回差价的110%加税,得30USD,信用卡折成加币=38CAD,摄像机实际支出为653CAD.
同时在 Futureshop查,同样的型号,原价799CAD+税,特价749+税.算上税就贵上了一大截,比国内买还贵!

That's exactly my point #1: US$499 to C$749, about US$1 to C$1.5.

Those Canadian retailer are still using the old exchange rate (deliberately) to reap off Canadians. But competition will force them to change soon.
