Garmin has been behind much of what we do here at Fish’n Canada, quite literally in most cases. Not only have their fish finders become a staple on the bow of FNC 1, and all other Fish’n Canada vessels, but their ever-evolving technology, such as LiveScope, and their in-depth mapping features provide us with the confidence to find fish on virtually any body of water.
However, Garmin’s takeover of the outdoor industry has dominated more than just freshwater and their impact on the marine industry has been just as substantial. As evidence, for the seventh year running, Garmin Marine has won the National Marine Electronics Association’s (NMEA) award for Manufacturer of the Year.
“These awards go beyond the products,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “They represent Garmin’s steadfast commitment to excellence and reliability among our industry colleagues and customers and are a true testament to the work and dedication of our entire team.”
In addition to the overarching award, Garmin also captured individual Product of Excellence awards in five different categories. These products included:
- HD IPS Display with Touchscreen
- Simple, Attractive Mounting Options
- GRID™ 20 Remote Control
- Garmin’s Most Responsive Autopilot System on the Water
- Solid-state 9-axis AHRS
- Reacts to Conditions
- And much more
