If there’s a manufacturer that equals navigation it’s Garmin. Whether in the car, on ships, in airplanes, or on the bike and your wrist - Garmin is the name for navigation. The company with its headquarters in Schaffhausen (Switzerland) was founded as early as 1989 by Gary Burrell and Min Kao. The company name Garmin comes from the first names of its two founding fathers. Today, the company has more than 14,500 employees at 65 locations around the world. Of course, the fan base for Garmin products is even larger.
