Garmin Named Manufacturer of the Year for Marine Electronics for Ninth Consecutive Year
The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) awarded Garmin the Manufacturer of the Year title at its annual conference in September 2023.
At Garmin we know our products are innovative — but it’s always nice when others recognize it too. At this year’s annual conference and awards banquet, NMEA® awarded Garmin the Manufacturer of the Year title in the large manufacturer category for the ninth year running. It’s an honor given to the most recognized company in the industry for both support in the field and excellence in product service — two arenas we are proud to specialize in. It’s also a testament to our mission to help mariners make the most of the time they spend on the water.

- MFD: GPSMAP® 8616xsv
