Garmin is founded on the principles of innovation,
convenience, performance, value, and service. Our
co-founders Gary Burrell and Dr. Min Kao, display our

What began as a brainstorming session of a handful of
engineers around a card table in 1989 has evolved into a
worldwide collaborative effort of thousands of
colleagues. Garmin’s goal, as it was then, remains
simple: To create navigation and communication devices
that can enrich our customers’ lives. Our innovative
products span various areas of interest, including
automotive, aviation, marine, fitness, outdoor
recreation and wireless applications.
A member of Garmin Ltd. (asdaq: GRMN), Garmin

minds and passionate spirits.
