Complaint Review: 86th Street Photo & Video
86th Street Photo & Videowww.86photovideo.com/ Internet U.S.A.
86th Street Photo & Video offered a Garmin Nuvi 760 GPS system which I ordered on the internet for an excellent price ($185.). Internet Nationwide
I called Garmin and was told that if you buy a GPS with out dated maps, Garmin provides you with instructions how to download the current ones free for 30 days after your purchase of a new unit. Then I found 86th Street was still offering the Nuvi 760 GPS for $219.00 usually shipping in 1 to 2 days.
I phoned again and was told that the folks at Garmin were wrong and that the unit advertised for $219.00 was the same unit I ordered with the outdated maps but that it was out of stock just like mine. Note: the description does not state that it has old maps nor are they offering the $319.00 unit (I guess that may tip people off).
Finally, I came across the Ripoff Report and found that this is common practice by 86th Street Photo & Video. I have cancelled my order and am now worried about what they will do with my credit card info? They gave their word that they will just destroy it, Why don't I feel comfortable trusting their word????
Do yourself a favor and stay away from these folks!!
