It was another consecutive strong quarter for Garmin, which reported consolidated net sales of $1.33 billion, a 53 percent increase compared with the same period last year.

Gross margin and operating margin were 58.8 percent and 28 percent, respectively, with operating income jumping 97 percent to $371 million when compared to the same period last year.

Double-digit growth in the automotive, fitness, marine and outdoor segments were chiefly responsible for the results, the company said in a statement.

In April, Mercury Marine announced it is broadening access to VesselView functionality with the launch of SmartCraft Connect, which provides information about SmartCraft-compatible engines through Garmin chartplotters.

The marine segment posted net sales of $262 million, a 66 percent gain from 2020, driven by demand for chartplotters. For the six-month period that ended in late June, marine net sales were up 47 percent to $471 million.

The company also upped its annual revenue guidance, with the anticipation that revenue would exceed last year by approximately 17 percent to about $4.9 billion.
