Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the world's largest1 and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, today announced that its Surround View Camera System, the marine industry's first intelligent camera system to offer a live 360-degree birds-eye view of a vessel, was selected as a category winner in the 2021 DAME Design Awards.

Surround View received top honors in the 'Marine Electronics and Marine Related Software' category at this year's METSTRADE Show, the world's largest trade exhibition of marine equipment, materials and systems, held Nov. 16-18 in Amsterdam.

The 2021 DAME Awards competition drew 103 entries from 25 countries. From there, a jury of industry and design experts and media representatives selected 53 "nominee" products before awarding top honors by category to products that represented excellence in every facet of product design—from ease of use, functionality and aesthetics, to environment and innovation.

"Surround View raises the bar for marine camera technology, and we're honored to be selected as a DAME Design Award category winner," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. "By blending great design with innovative technology, Surround View delivers unprecedented situational awareness and convenience on the water. This award is a testament to the relentless efforts of our team to make boating more enjoyable for everyone."

A breakthrough in video guidance for recreational boating and yachting, the Surround View Camera System integrates six through-hull mounted cameras that capture a 360-degree bird's-eye view of the vessel during low-speed maneuvers, such as docking in a tight spot or navigating crowded marinas. Designed for a broad range of boats, the Surround View cameras have a low profile for OEM factory-installed through-hull mounting that blends functionality with streamlined aesthetics.

Designed to help take the guess work out of docking, Surround View maximises visibility and minimises blind spots by displaying a stitched image with 360-degree real-time video views from around the vessel directly to compatible Garmin chartplotters or multi-function (MFD) helm displays. Thanks to Surround View's augmented reality Visual Bumper and Distance Markers features, captains can quickly and easily maneuver the vessel with increased situational awareness and to help avoid collisions.

Surround View is available now on new builds from Garmin's boatbuilding partners. A compatible Garmin chartplotter or MFD, including the GPSMAP® 8400/8600, GPSMAP 7x3/9x3/12x3 series or the Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System, is required.

Engineered on the inside for life on the outside, Garmin products have revolutionised life for anglers, sailors, mariners and boat enthusiasts everywhere. Committed to developing the most sophisticated marine electronics the industry has ever known, Garmin believes every day is an opportunity to innovate and a chance to beat yesterday. For the seventh consecutive year, Garmin was recently named the Manufacturer of the Year by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). Other Garmin marine brands include Fusion® and Navionics®. For more information, visit:
