Over $6 Mil in Sales to Army/Navy for Garmin GPS Units


According to Defense industry Daily, a small business owner from California received a $6.6 million order for 1,462 Garmin GPSMAP 696 unit as well as some training software. The units are going to both the Army and the Navy. The GPSMAP 696 is an aviation unit offering a large sunlit readable display, offers chart capability and for an extra price (to consumers) weather radar overlay. The weather radar is through an XM satellite subscription, so there can also be over 170 channels of music and sports too.

So that has to make your day if you are the brand manager for Garmin Aviation.....

From Defense Industry Daily - thanks Jim for sending this in.
