Garmin have been named Manufacturer of the Year for the fourth consecutive year by members of the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). The company also earned the NMEA Technology Award for its Panoptix LiveScope and four Product of Excellence Awards with wins in the multifunction display, autopilot, multimedia entertainment and mobile application utility categories.

‘We’re extremely proud to be honoured by the NMEA for both our technology and our support of our products to dealers and customers in the field,’ said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice-president global consumer sales. ‘Our commitment to delivering first-class hardware, software and support is stronger than ever, and these coveted awards are the result of that dedication and a true testament to our products.’

A panel of four judges, including two media and two NMEA-certificated marine electronics technicians, evaluated 16 nominated products this year before awarding Panoptix LiveScope with the NMEA Technology Award honour.
