Hi!

Anyone in here ever found a place where to buy TrackIR products in Canada?

I don't want to deal with brokerage and custom fees as this is a costy item and also most US stores tend to use UPS which SUCH a pain in the ***.

Thanks for the tip!

Hello Mr. Moose!

You can get TrackIr from these people. I believe they are in Sask.

Good luck with your purchase and make sure you get the 3 Pro with Vector Expansion.

Moose, I ordered mine from EDimensional, and I received it without duties and then received an invoice from some idiotic third party shipping firm asking me to pay all this extra dough in return for them doing nothing for me. I ignored it, they sent another, I ignored that, and voila,

I never paid the duty in the end, and never heard back, much like that whopping speeding ticket I got in New York State a few years ago. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

thanks for the tips, but ExtremeGaming device sucks. They charge WAY too much for TIR3 Pro, they only use UPS, and they want me to give them my credit card # (usually, you go trough a site that knows (CCbill or whatver) your CC #, but the seller doesn't know it).

As for the brokerage bill, you know that they can storm in your house and take whatever they want? Yup, it's in the law, we call it "huissier" in french (maybe broker in english). Once they are hired, even if you owe only 1$ they can take away your whole house...

BTW, was the firm DHL?

I got mine from extreme gameing and then got the vector from them.

Best option I could find from canada. Most of the increased cost is because they cant buy them at anything but retail. By the time you add the brokerage from the states(if you pay it) and the fact that TrackIR will not let Extreme Gameing honor any of the myrad coupons that they put out to nock 30 bucks off the price you have not a great deal, but its very convienent and fast. So i was all over it.

The term in english is bailiff http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I've gotten a couple of letters from customs and courriers after getting stuff from my in-laws in the UK and Switzerland. I decided not to tempt fate, so I paid up pretty quickly. Annoying a bailiff is probably a really bad idea.
