Garmin has become a household name in the last 30 years, often used to refer to GPS devices. Their navigation devices are used all around the world, penetrating a number of market segment which include the US military, automobiles and fitness. The commitment to their values has allowed Garmin to continuously expand with no signs of slowing down. In recent years, they have seen tremendous success in the adventure touring industry. Their GPS devices are a great tool for adventure riders, allowing them to explore further and track their experiences.
