I went to Cabelas today (not a short drive for me) without calling ahead to find out because I figured it was a no brainer that they would have them. Well, they do, in boxes. All Cabelas had to demo was Lowrance, Humminbird, and 2 Raymarine units. Pretty disappointing that a store with that much size can't some how make room for Garmin and the others. I let them know that as well.
Would the closest place be the BPS in Gurnee (never been there)? Do they have the full Garmin lineup out to demo? I know the man mall has a couple units, but I'm wanting to check out the mid to high end units.
