Garmin scores victory in patent lawsuit

by GPS4US 2014-03-14 14:14

Garmin got a big victory on March 11 when a judge ruled in its favor in a patent in a patent lawsuit
involving the GPS giant’s Forerunner and Edge products.

The Southern District of California Judge granted Garmin’s motion for summary judgment of
non-infringement, concluding a lawsuit brought be Pacing Technologies in 2012.

The decision is subject to appeal.

According to, Pacing’s lawsuit claimed that the Edge and Forerunner violated its patent
allowing users to choose the pace of their workout activities. Pacing, according to, uses
the technology in an iPhone app to let users sync their workout pace to the song playing on their phone.

“This is yet another victory for Garmin in its campaign against the plague of bogus patent lawsuits
that have corrupted the patent system at a huge cost to American industry and consumers,” said Andrew
Etkind, Garmin’s vice president and general counsel. “Garmin’s fitness products are nothing like the
playback devices described in Pacing’s patent and we‘re pleased that the Court was able to summarily
dispose of this lawsuit.”
