Garmin International, a unit of Garmin, today announced that Geely Auto Group, a Chinese automaker, has selected Garmin to provide its camera technology and driving recorder systems for multiple Geely vehicle models beginning in the year 2020.
Garmin will support Geely’s quality standards by utilising its production facility in China to manufacture the automotive grade camera and recording systems. Once the integrated platform is in place, Geely drivers will be able to use the camera as a personal eyewitness on the road as the recording system detects and stores potential incidents throughout the course of a drive.
Matt Munn, Garmin automotive OEM managing director, said, “We are proud to be selected by Geely for their next generation integrated camera solution, and we look forward to providing them with the best integrated camera platform solution on the market.”
Garmin has been developing and providing GPS navigation and wireless devices and applications to five primary markets, including automotive, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor recreation.
