A Tour of France


Arc1While we all know about Team Garmin’s ride around France in July and their current ride across Missouri, a Garmin associate recently made a hop across the pond and over the channel to have a look around the City of Lights for himself. Armed with a nüvi 770 that’s loaded with street maps for Europe and North America as well as an Oregon 300 that features a built-in worldwide basemap, he was able to find his way through all of the twists and turns that wrap through Paris and also drop off an unregistered Colorado geocoin in the
process.  When asked about his time in Paris and his experience with his Garmin gear, his reply needed no translation.

“Having the nüvi with me was a big help. I put it in pedestrian mode and getting around was easy. I didn’t Geo1_2
want to be the obvious tourist with the poster-sized map in front of me at all times and I wanted to make sure I spent more time looking at the sites instead of fumbling with pages of directions. The nüvi was quick and easy to use and helped me get home every night – a big plus when you’re in a foreign land. And it was great to be able to drop off a geocoin while I was on my trip. I keep checking Geocaching.com – when I’m not working – to see if anyone has found the coin yet. Lots of fun.”

So even when Garmin associates aren’t working, they really are working . . . so to speak. Because when you make gear that’s as fun to use as it is to work on, you’ll find lots of associates taking work home and on the road with them.
