Posted on Tuesday, December 23 2008 @ 03:36:43 CET by

DigiTimes reports Garmin expects to ship 18 million GPS units this year, a 50 percent increase from 2007. The site also heard Garmin plans to release self-developed Google Android based handsets in the second half of 2009.
Garmin's GPS PND sales volumes in the Asia Pacific market in 2008 will also grow by at least 50%, An indicated. In the Taiwan market, Garmin had a market share of 25-30%, next to 40% for Mio, in the first half of 2008, but the gap shrank considerably in the second half due to Garmin expanding its retail network, An pointed out.

In addition to GPS PNDs, Garmin will launch Nuvifone, its first GPS-enabled handset, in the Taiwan market in the second quarter of 2009, An noted. Garmin also plans to launch self-developed Android handsets in the second half of 2009, with production to be outsourced.
