SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Garmin is founded on the principles of innovation, convenience, performance, value, and service. Co-founders Gary Burrell and Dr. Min Kao, displayed their innovative products in the lobby of our Olathe, Kansas, world headquarters.

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. Garminís goal, as it was then, remains simple: To create navigation and communication devices that can enrich their customersí lives. Their innovative products span various areas of interest, including automotive, aviation, marine, fitness, outdoor recreation and wireless applications.

A member of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), Garmin International exemplifies growth for everyone involved Ė consumers, employees, investors and retail partners. The secret to their success isnít even that much of a secret. From the time that the founders focused on selling their first product using GPS (Global Positioning System), Garmin has hired and surrounded itself with creative minds and passionate spirits.
