Screen shot 2012-09-11 at 8.44.20 PMAs the resident social media junkie, I get inspired as we explore new ways to strengthen the connections with our fans and customers. Facebook and Twitter are perfect channels for conversations, our blog helps us share news and updates with more context, and our YouTube channel has become a go-to resource for curious shoppers who want the next best thing to being able to try it before you buy it.

Found at either or under GarminGPS at, our boards feature the beautiful and inspiring imagery that embodies the active lifestyles that our colleagues and our customers all enjoy. As an avid runner, cyclist and hiker, I could stare at those pictures all day long and never lose interest. From pre-race stretching to pushing through the finish, I can relate to each person and situation pictured. And while I'm not a pilot, the aviation photos we've collected over the years are enough to offer an instant escape from the daily grind.

We've even dedicated an entire board to some of the fun we find on all of your pages, collectively called "As Seen Online."

If you're a diehard pinner - or just getting started like us - swing by and check out our pics. You may be motivated to discover a new destination, run your first 5K, take a hike or hop on your bike. Or even just to share and enjoy some beautiful photos. Because you won't know where you'll find your inspiration, only that you should never stop looking.
