Garmin finds hospital, helps wife navigate just in time


As we hit the Metropolitan area and went to our little sandwich shop, we no more than ordered our lunch, when Gary (age 48) indicated he just was not feeling too well. We thought about heading to the hotel for Gary to rest, when he handed me the car keys and said he thought he needed to go to a hospital.

Well, although I have had limited driving time in the Metro area before, I had NO idea where to find a hospital. I grabbed our Garmin, found the “Hospital” button, and was provided with a list of hospitals in the Metro area. As Gary was suffering the pains of the heart attack, I maneuvered my way into Minneapolis to the hospital only by the grace of God and the instructions from our Garmin. Without our Garmin and this wonderful feature I really do not know what I would have done. 

To make a long story short, we hit the metro area shortly before 1:00 and Gary was in surgery shortly after 2:00. The Garmin provided me the shortest route in getting to the number one heart hospital in MN. We have many things to be thankful for but we wanted to thank your company for such a wonderful product.

Thanks, Ann and Gary, for sharing your story with us! If you have a story you'd like to share, send us an email at
