Many of you undoubtedly know us, but for the uninitiated, we’re a leader in GPS (Global
Positioning System) technology and integration.  We build devices for anyone who needs to know where they are, where they’ve been, and where they need to
go.  Pilots, boaters, sailors, soldiers, hikers, hunters, runners, bikers, travelers, commuters, and soccer moms all have joined the growing ranks of Garmin. 
We were founded in 1989 by GARy Burrell and MIN Kao (get it? GAR-MIN?) and since then, we’ve sold over 13 million products to people around the world.  Check out
our official website for more information about our products.
