Garmin have announced that, after 23 years, they have now sold more than 100million products.
Founded in 1989, Garmin sold their first GPS device in 1991 and reached the 1 million mark six years later in 1997. A mere ten years after that they had surpassed the 25 million mark and now, 5 years further on, that number has grown to 100 million.
It's an impressive achievement. The first GPS I ever owned was a GPS 12 and I still recall the amazement at a handheld device that could plot my position anywhere on the planet.
Garmin will be marking this milestone with a commemorative logo on its product packaging. No mention of a Willy Wonka style golden ticket though.
