Jake’s Journal: New products are perfect cure for January jet lag


ApproachG3tilt Edge500stats EcoRouteHD2 In a month’s time, I covered four time zones for work trips, flying to Chicago, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Orlando to talk about Garmin’s latest and greatest.

And here’s one of the great things about working for a company that covers so many different markets and activities – those conversations never got old.

Then came Vegas, where an estimated 150,000 flock to town for the Consumer Electronics Show. My colleagues and I talked about exciting new announcements – especially ecoRoute HD and Voice Studio as ways to enhance Garmin’s flagship nuvi automotive devices. My January wrapped up with quick trips to Outdoor Retailer and the PGA Merchandise Show, where we again talked about innovative ways to use GPS technology in your favorite activities. With the snowcapped mountains of Utah as a backdrop, I enjoyed showing people our new BirdsEye Satellite Imagery and Custom Maps – and how they can make our great handheld devices even better. And finally, soaking in a 70-degree Florida day, I told golfers about our brand-new Approach G3 touchscreen golf GPS and the hot-off-the-presses free software update for their Approach G5 that helps you track fairways hit, greens hit in regulation, putts per round and how far they hit each club.

So now that it’s February, I’m enjoying a break from the road. Or rather, I’m racking up miles in a different way. But I’ll tell you about my 12-week marathon plan next week.
