Garmin Moves to Dashboard Embedded GPS

- March 7, 2012

Sales of GPS stand­alone devices have declined as more con­sumers are using their smart­phones for direc­tions and maps. Nav­i­ga­tion device man­u­fac­tur­er Garmin is now part­ner­ing with automak­ers to embed GPS sys­tems in dash­boards. Garmin believes a need for ded­i­cat­ed nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems still exists because it is dan­ger­ous to use most phones when dri­ving.
