Ontimedigital.com Complaint - Don't Order From Ontimedigital.com

Review by bgs720 on 2009-01-21
Whatever you do DO NOT order from this company. Ontimedigital.com boasts the lowest prices on the internet. That is true. I bought a Garmin Nuvi 760 for $70 cheaper than I had seen anywhere else. When I called to confirm the order they tried to sell me 2007/2008 maps. I was confused. The maps are already pre-loaded into any GPS so I was told "it comes with a 30 day trial maps and you will need to purchase the full maps at a cost of $79 for the 2007 maps." I can't remember what the charge was for the 2008 maps because I was enraged. I told them I can buy it at the store for $240 and they said "OK we can send it to you for that price with the 2008 maps on it." I told them to cancel the order and this is what the cancellation email stated:

"Thank you for placing an order with our company. However the product that you ordered is currently unavailable. We will go ahead and cancel your order. This email will serve as proof of cancellation. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us."

WHAT!? I cancelled because they tried to scam me.

Here are some other links about this company and their business practices that I found after the fact.

Why would they try to sell the 2007/2008 maps when the 2009 map is already available? Is your complaint old?

Complaint isn't old. I just ordered it last week. It was just a scam they were trying to pull. Showing it for a low price and trying to sell you the maps that were already on it for more money.
