Date: Tuesday, August 21 @ 08:46:50 UTC
Garmin have outdone TomTom in terms of worldwide sales - but only just! A recent report from Canalys shows that out of the 7.5million units sold in the 2nd quarter of 2007, 1.85million were Garmin and 1.80million were TomTom. Mio were in 3rd place with 0.7million followed by Magellan (0.4million) and Navman (0.2million).
As a direct comparison, during the 2nd quarter of 2006 only 3.4million units were sold worldwide - at that time Garmin only had a 20% share compared to TomTom's 24%. The figures from Q2 2006 to Q2 2007 relates to a 116% growth! It's no wonder that we currently have over 205,000 registered users.
