Garmin® Introduces GNX™ Marine Instruments
|By Business Wire
|April 10, 2014 07:00 AM EDT
Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the GNX 20 and
GNX 21, the newest offerings in the premier Garmin marine
instrumentation lineup. Boasting fully customizable displays and low
power consumption, the GNX 20 and GNX 21 provide the most pivotal marine
information for both sail and power boating.
“The new GNX 20 and 21 not only relay the most crucial maritime data in
a user-friendly manner, they do so while running on extremely low
amounts of power,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales.
“No matter if running during the day or enjoying a nighttime cruise,
these new instruments put the information you need at your fingertips
while doing so in an efficient manner.”
The GNX 20 and GNX 21 both have 4-inch, glass-bonded, monochrome
displays that show over 50 marine and vessel parameters including depth,
speed, wind, and navigational data. The GNX 20 overlays black digits on
a white background while the GNX 21 puts white digits on a black
background, both providing high contrast and high visibility no matter
the environment. If a different backlight color is desired, the display
can be tailored by choosing from 7 different colors: red, orange,
yellow, green, blue or purple. Based off of these colors, the user can
also create a customized color for optimal viewing.
With fully customizable user profiles, the GNX 20 and GNX 21 allow the
screen layout to be configured to the user’s preferred settings by
showing single, dual or triple functions or a dedicated Gauge and Graph
mode. And for a truly custom look in the helm, the GNX 20 and GNX 21
have the ability to be flush or flat mounted.
Another benefit of both the GNX 20 and GNX 21 is power consumption. Only
350mW is consumed during the day with no backlight, while 400mW is used
at night when only a mid-level backlight is required. This allows for
more time on the water without running the boat motor or generator for
extended periods of time.
Auto-scroll is also integrated into the GNX 20 and GNX 21, which allows
the mariner to designate how quickly data pages cycle without user
intervention. The layout can be customized to scroll at different time
intervals, thus allowing hands-free operation. This also allows the user
the ability to utilize one instrument for multiple uses.
The GNX 20 and GNX 21 are scheduled to be available in the second
quarter of 2014 and will have a suggested retail price of $449.99.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
