A history of innovation

What started out in 1989 with a handful of dedicated engineers and a great product idea has grown into the GPS leader — both in sales and critical acclaim. From the time our first GPS handhelds supported coalition forces in the first Gulf War of 1991, up to our current reputation as the foremost name in GPS innovation, Garmin has helped to take GPS to new heights by going well beyond the ordinary features and performance found in typical GPS receivers. Throughout this time innovation has been our watchword and our people continue to excel in the design of innovative solutions for all our customers.

Garmin today

Today, Garmin has a richly diverse product line for every lifestyle and distributors in virtually every part of the world. We have built and sold over 100 million GPS receivers across all our market sectors. While our immediate success has resulted from developing innovative products for a variety of markets, our long-term success is based on a strong commitment to support our customers after the sale. We strive to win over new customers by offering them quality products at tremendous value, and by delivering superior after-sales service. We have demonstrated our success by converting them into Garmin loyalists who will support us for many years to come, and recommend us to others.
