Volvo Penta Signs Agreement with Garmin

Sunday, February 20, 2011

AB Volvo Penta and Garmin Ltd have entered into a joint development and marketing strategic alliance to provide instrumentation, navigation and communication equipment for marine use. Volvo Penta and Garmin will jointly develop marine instrumentation, navigation, and communication equipment, which will be marketed in a complete customer offer for fully integrated drive systems and instruments. "The Volvo Penta and Garmin strategic alliance  will provide our mutual  customers access to state-of-the-art communication technology and a complete programme of multifunctional instruments which will significantly strengthen our world-leading position when it comes to complete, integrated drive systems for boats," said Göran Gummeson, President of Volvo Penta.

 
As electronic systems continue to gain ground in the marine sector, the propulsion system in boats is being increasingly integrated in the driver's environment. Volvo Penta is linking engines and transmissions with instruments, controls and accessories in the electronic platform known as EVC, Electronic Vessel Control. Using this electronic platform, Volvo Penta has been able to deliver products including the joystick and the Dynamic Positioning System. Volvo Penta's and Garmin's joint products will be introduced successively, starting in 2012.
