Toronto Boat Show 2012 is a wrap!

Special “Thanks” to two great ladies for making this years event the “BIGGEST and BEST” Boat Show ever for Radioworld.  First and foremost,  hats off to Show Director Linda Waddell and her entire Team. Every facet from sign up through move-in, advertisings, overall look and feel and teardown went off without a hitch and the show and its people were firing on all cylinders. Crowds were spread out throughout the week and both weekends with thanks to that other special lady in our lives “Mother Nature”!
The Radioworld booth was our biggest and best yet, jammed pack with the best electronics money can buy!  Garmin Marine systems were a big hit this year with the re-emerging power boat crowd with many happy customers purchasing full blown, chartplotter/sounder/radar systems in screen sizes from 7″ to 15″. Garmin handheld products were also a hot purchase this year too!

Marine Electronics in general were definitely a key component to this years event with many consumers taking considerable time in identifying their needs and allowing our Marine Electronics Experts fit their needs best.  Simrad, Lowrance, Humminbird, Furuno and Standard Horizon Chartplotters and Sounders along with NMEA 2000 products including wind sensors, tank level monitors, fuel probes and engine monitoring systems sold like never before.

Our lost leader (Revere auto and manual inflation PFD’s) were also a big hit this weekend with 644 pieces sold over the 9 day event!  (Our friends at the OPP will be glad to know that people are safety conscious)

Thanks again to The Toronto Boat Show Team, to a great staff for their tremendous effort over the past two weeks (in the store and at the show), to our vendors and ProStaff for their support and to those many customers that chose to spend their hard earned dollars at Radioworld.

Sincerely

Jack Summers
General Manager

Mcmurdo Fast Find 210

Great deal on the Fast Find 210, the only approved 406 Mhz PLB in Canada!

The Fast Find 210, like the Fast Find 200 is a powerful waterproof 406 distress beacon. However, the 210 also has a built-in integral 50-channel GPS for additional pinpoint location, further speeding up time of location.

The 210 transmits the two signals simultaneously, one to the subscription free global 406 MHz satellite system, and the other (121.5MHz) is to speed up the local recovery response process. Once activated, FAST FIND’s signals will continue to transmit for at least 24 hours, at a powerful 5 watt output, the 406 MHz transmission ensures that a call for help gets through whatever the conditions.

FAST FIND also includes a unique SOS LED flash light facility which is manually activated to further assist in speeding up the users recovery during night time rescues.

FAST FIND will operate in temperatures down to -20°c and its integral battery has a user storage life of 5 years, so there’s no need for constant battery changes and re-charging.
