Garmin allows customers to register their devices on their website for better support and notifications on updates. Aside from these, signing up for a Garmin account lets users unlock, manage, and download maps from their dashboard. It also provides easier management, activation, and renewal of nüLink!™ services. nüLink!™ by Garmin provides users accurate and real-time traffic and weather information, as well as fuel prices and safety camera notices. Garmin online members can also locate their tracking device using the dashboard on the website. The portal is available in a lot of languages, so it is also useful for clients and customers overseas.
In 1983, Gary Burrell and Min Kao created a company called ProNav. Later on, they changed the name to Garmin. The company aims to provide outdoor, navigation, marine, aviation, and sporting goods that are built to last. The company is committed to providing these products in top notch quality. The company keeps all the manufacturing, design, warehouse processes, and marketing in-house to get better control over quality, service, and timelines. The company’s first ever product was the GPS 100 which was launched in 1990. As of this year, the company has sold over 126 million GPS devices.
Most of the company’s operation is online, but they have 35 offices all over the world, with more than 9,000 employees. Its headquarters are located in Olathe, Kansas. It is currently headed by Dr. Min Kao as the Executive Chairman, Clifton A. Pemble as President and CEO, Doug Boessen as Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, and Andrew Etkind as Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary.
