Bayliner, Garmin team up

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Beginning with the 2011 model year, all Bayliner navigation packages will feature electronics exclusively from Garmin International, according to a release from Bayliner.

“In comparing product features, pricing and overall value, we believe Garmin is clearly the best choice and is a recognized leader in GPS mapping and VHF technology,” Betsy Lazzara, Bayliner brand manager, said in the release. “In addition to being a great value, Garmin’s GPS and VHF radio combinations feature the latest interfacing technology available and will provide our customers with great quality and state-of-the-art design.”

Bayliner manufactures runabout and cruiser models ranging from 16 to 33 feet. The optional navigation packages vary by model based on boat size and specific use. Bayliner says it is already installing Garmin electronics on its cruiser models and will have complete integration throughout its product line by September when the 2011 model year begins.
