Josh Bertrand: Why I Switched to Garmin

By: Josh Bertrand

As a western-based angler, I have always been passionate about understanding the electronics on my boat to help me catch more fish. With Garmin pushing so hard to provide anglers with new technology that is not available anywhere else, switching was a no-brainier for me.

Garmin’s legendary reliability, along with new innovations such as Panoptix has me so excited to be a part of the team. With so many talented anglers competing on the Elite Series, there are not very many ways to gain an advantage over my opponents. I feel that by switching to Garmin, I am gaining that competitive advantage that I need to further my career.
