Established in 1984 as Navionics®, Garmin® Italy Technologies produces electronic charts for the leisure boating market. We were born from a revolutionary idea: the world's first electronic chart display - the chartplotter. Now we use localized services every day on our mobile devices and maybe even take them for granted. Just think of how pioneering we were back then. This is the spirit on which Navionics was founded — and was taken to the next level with the acquisition by Garmin in 2017.
Our cartography is available to boaters for use in GPS chartplotters, and within our app for Apple® and AndroidTM devices.
Our office is based in Massarosa, Tuscany, the perfect starting point for reaching nearby cities of art, beaches and mountains.
With over 19,000 associates in 34 countries around the world, the Garmin® group brings GPS navigation and wearable technology to the automotive, aviation, marine, outdoor and fitness markets.
At Garmin®, we like to work hard and play hard. It comes easy when you work on cool products with hard-working individuals who share the same passion.
We think every day is an opportunity to innovate and a chance to beat yesterday. See more at www.garmin.com.
