Fort Ann, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2009
When Linda and John Crandell launched http://www.GPSNavigationConnection.com in January 2009, their goal was to provide GPS devices for geocaching enthusiasts, but soon the couple expanded their website's focus to fulfill a wide range of GPS needs.
"We picked all our GPS units based on their features, like some of the first GPS units we decided on had weather features that other models didn't," said Linda.
Linda and John Crandell recognize that different people want different features for their GPS device, and strive to offer a broad selection to accommodate their customers.
"We're always looking for better products for our customers," said John. "In a few months we'll be getting a new Garmin GPS for truckers that maps out the best routes and tells truckers which roads to avoid."
With the addition of their new blog at http://www.FreeGPSGuidance.com, Linda and John hope to discuss their own passion for GPS devices, centered on the budding recreational field of geocaching.
"Geocaching is becoming more popular by the day," said Linda. "I can remember even a few years ago when only elite backpackers knew what a geocache was."
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which participants use a GPS device to hide or seek containers called geocaches, which are located around the world. "We want people of all ages to be able to experience geocaching, and the first step is getting a top notch GPS," said John. "That's where we come in," added Linda.
The Crandells believe geocaching is an ideal reason to spend more time outside as it doesn't require extensive experience or knowledge of the outdoors to be fun. "Geocaching really is a universal activity," said Linda. "It's like an old fashioned treasure hunt on a much smaller scale, and adults and kids love it."
Visitors to the website will love the Crandell's helpful approach to customer service, which the couple believes is paramount in building a rapport with their customers and a successful business.
"We've had several people needing help with their GPS unit call us thinking we represent one of the manufacturers," said Linda. "Even if those people didn't buy their GPS unit from us, we're happy to help because we know they'll come back to our website for all their GPS needs," added John.
