Popular Bass Fishing Trail Welcomes Iconic Industry Partner

NORMAN, Okla. (February 27, 2014) — The Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela’s will officially partner with Garmin for the 2014 season. The marine electronics company will showcase its entirely new 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 2014 fishing from a boat equipped with fix-mounted Garmin electronics.

“Garmin has some incredible technology for anglers and outdoorsmen,” said Mike Hastings, Tournament Director. “Combine that with the Garmin Grand Giveaway program and it’s easy to see why we’re so excited about them coming on board. This partnership will be a big hit with TXTT anglers.”

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 new 2014 marine lineup features its brand-new 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.

“Garmin has long been a key player in the world of freshwater fishing,” said Ted Gartner, Garmin’s Director of Corporate Communications. “We’re excited to build on that legacy – both with our new lineup of marine electronics as well as our partnership with the Texas Team Trail.”

The tournament circuit, designed exclusively for team competition, includes four qualifying events, plus a year-end championship, taking place on Toledo Bend, June 7-8. Registration for the 2014 season is officially underway. Anglers with questions or anyone interested in more details are encouraged to visit or call 210-788-4143.

Along with title-sponsor Cabela’s, Texas Team Trail has also welcomed Lucas Oil®, Ranger Boats, Stratos Boats, Triton Boats, Evinrude®, Minn Kota®, Talon, RAM Trucks, Lowrance, Power-Pole, Amphibia, iON, Garmin, General Tire, SuperClean, Valley Fashion, Mustang Survival, Artic Ice and Protect the Harvest as official partners.
