Garmin wasn't anything in the Aviation world several years ago and bought the UPS systems, but UPS had bought them from Apollo,
Garmin took that purchase
and expanded it so now they are likely the number 1 aviation comm / nav / glass cockpit
systems there are.
Since they really set the world on fire with systems, it took the existing leaders by surprise, like Bendix King. They although lagging behind have really brought out new systems too. But until Garmin came along, Avionics had sort of stagnated.
Point being, once Garmin bought out UPS and got into aviation, it had stagnated, now the consumer is the big winner.
