Garmin International Inc. has announced that for the second year in a row, it received the honor of being the most recognized company in the marine electronics field for its support of products in the field by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). In addition to Manufacturer of the Year, Garmin also received seven Product of Excellence Awards in the following categories: autopilot, multi-function display (MFD), mobile application—aid to navigation, mobile application—utility, fishfinder, AIS, and multimedia entertainment. The honors were announced at the prestigious 2016 NMEA Convention held last week in Naples, Fla.
“We are incredibly honored and humbled to yet again be recognized as the Manufacturer of the Year by the NMEA, and to have so many of our products and applications receive top honors,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “These coveted awards are the result of our dedication to the marine industry, and a true testament to our continued commitment to design, manufacture, sell and support industry-leading products.”
For the fourth year in a row, Garmin received an award in the autopilot category for its GHP ReactorTM Hydraulic Autopilot with SmartPump. The GHP Reactor was Garmin’s first recreational autopilot system to utilize AHRS technology and boasts the usability, installation flexibility, and many other features that prove to be valuable for any vessel.
Garmin also earned accolades in the MFD category, another consecutive honor. This year’s MFD award went to the GPSMAP® 8624, a 24-inch all-in-one chartplotter that boasts the highest screen resolution on the market. The GPSMAP 8624 comes preloaded with both BlueChart® g2 coastal and LakeVü HD inland maps, and is fully network compatible for support of radar, autopilot, instruments, multiple screens, sensors, remote sonar modules, digital switching, thermal cameras, and more.
Smartphone applications are essential tools for mariners in today’s connected world, and Garmin’s mobile app offerings received top honors yet again in these categories. Garmin BlueChart Mobile, a route planning application with streaming weather capabilities, was named the best mobile application aid to navigation; and Garmin HelmTM, an application that allows mariners to view and control their chartplotter from a smartphone or tablet, won for mobile application utility.
