Global Positioning System (GPS) technology has advanced rapidly in the last decade to become part of our everyday life. Garmin, founded in 1989, has evolved into the leading provider GPS enabled navigation, communication and information devices. From handheld to wrist-top and dashboard mounted GPS devices, Garmin makes them all. Whether you are looking to go geocaching, plot your hiking routes or simply like the idea of a GPS for route finding and safety, Altrec.com has the device for you.
Garmin makes a diverse line of user-friendly GPS products for hikers, cyclists and even driving applications. Their focus on high-sensitivity receivers, color displays and versatile applications means you will find the right device for your outdoor, automotive and marine needs. The popular eTrex series of handheld GPS models are easy to use and affordable. They are perfect for beginner and advanced users alike.

The latest technology to come to GPS units is the easy-to-use touchscreen interface, and Garmin makes a selection of touchscreen GPS models including the Oregon and Dakota models. These rugged navigators are waterproof, impact resistant and include colorful, well-lit displays. Garmin has handheld radio and GPS device combinations, too. The popular Rhino series incorporates a two-way radio, color mapping and a high-sensitivity GPS receiver into one device. There is no limit to the application of GPS technology and you will even find a unit with a dog collar device intended to help you keep track of your dog while hunting or hiking.
Using advanced technology, Garmin has been able to integrate GPS technology into watches and small wrist-top units.
