While cell phones provide navigation, they require cell towers. There is still a large segment that requires GPS for hunting, fishing, exercise, etc.

They've been scrappy and incredibly resilient in recent years as (Marc Andreesen) "software has been eating everything," but I don't think they can keep it up. Apple Watch ushers in new age of wearables, and while they may play, they aren't an ecosystem.

Garmin's traditional business line is in decline, having been replaced by mobile phones. While it has broadened its offerings into other categories, such as fitness, it is finding new competition -- from the likes of Apple -- in this segment, as well. Look for stagnant growth for the next few years.

Now that portable GPS-enabled devices such as smartphones are becoming ubiquitous, I anticipate a shrinking market for dedicated GPS devices.

gps and now fishfinder markets.... their onto something here.... millions of fisherman use electronics to locate exact fishing spots... or to navigate difficult structures.... low debt, fair dividend.

While I like the company and it's devices, for the short term, I think the company will struggle as it converts to non-car GPS devices. Liabilities have been increasing, revenue and income are dropping, while the payout ratio has been increasing. I think a dividend drop will have to come at some point. The margins are extremely high, I think Garmin will have to start cutting into these at some point in the near future. Positive thing - R&D as a percentage has been increasing, so I don't believe they will lose their place as the front runner in GPS devices.

Short. I despise their personal use gps portion of their business as people just use their cell phones now. Other parts of their biz might be fine, but total revenues have started to decline.

I saw a Garmin ad on TV for a GPS wristwatch for golfers. I want one! And if a duffer like me wants one, a lot of other golfers will want one too. I don't know how much that product will add to revenues, but it was enough to get me interested.

GRMN has zero debt.

The dividend to generous.

The price at the time of this writing is about twice book value, which is fair.

Consumer confidence is trending up. So I think people who have been tight with their money in recent years might be more willing to spend money on gadgets like GPS navigators.

On the technical side, the stock price is currently breaking out of a five month base following a gap down.

FAIR WARNING: Based on all that, I just bought my first third. (That is a contrary indicator.)

I purchased a Garmin in 2010 prior to a good smartphone. It is now 2013 and Garmin wants to charge me $50 to update my maps one time, $90 for lifetime updates.

This blew me away. I know there aren't many changes to main highways to get around but having to pay to keep this product up to date like that doesn't work for me.

I don't know how this company exists. When my Android asks me to pay for map updates I will say I am sorry for this post. But that seems unlikely...

Why do people keep paying good money to buy a GPS, when they can get exactly the same for free on their smartphone?

I don't think, in this day and age, you can make it as a company SOLELY focused on GPS technology. Google has the power, resources, and foresight to disrupt a lot of areas, and this is obviously one of them. At the very least it seems to me that GRMN will have to cut its dividend in the coming years.
