Agreement includes Garmin “Grand Giveaway” potential at all events
NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. — The Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela’s (TXTT) will once again partner with Garmin for the 2016 season. The marine electronics company will showcase its popular line of sonar and GPS devices designed specifically for freshwater anglers. In addition, Garmin will offer a $1,000 “Grand Giveaway” bonus to any team that wins a TXTT event in 2016 fishing from a boat equipped with fix-mounted Garmin electronics.
“We’re lucky to work with a brand like Garmin,” said Texas Team Trail tournament director Mike Hastings. “They’ve been a tremendous partner for us and the addition of the Grand Giveaway program has been huge bonus for TXTT anglers. We’re excited to have them back on board for 2016 and look forward to a big year ahead.”
Garmin’s marine business segment is a leading provider of navigation and communication equipment to retail and OEM customers. Garmin’s portfolio includes the industry’s most sophisticated array of chartplotters and touchscreen multifunction displays, sonar, high-definition radar, autopilot, high-resolution mapping, sailing instrumentation and other products and services that are known for innovation, reliability, and ease-of-use.
Garmin’s marine lineup features its exclusive DownVü™ and SideVü™ scanning sonar, which provide a near picture quality representation of objects, structure and fish that are found both underneath the boat and also to the sides. These true-to-life images give an angler a better idea of the most ideal spots and underwater structure for fishing, and provide the clearest sonar picture of fish returns available on the market today.
“When it comes to freshwater fishing, Garmin has long been a leader in technology and equipment designed specifically for anglers,” said Ted Gartner, Garmin’s director of corporate communications. “Our partnership with the Texas Team Trail is a great opportunity to build on that legacy. We’re excited to work with them again this year and showcase our most advanced product lineup to date.”
The tournament circuit, designed exclusively for team competition, will begin the 2016 season Jan. 30 on Sam Rayburn Reservoir. The schedule includes four qualifying events, plus a year-end championship on Ray Roberts Lake, May 14-15.
