eBay VeRO Enforcement

Buying Garmin Products Safely on eBay

Garmin sells many devices that incorporate upgradable software, maps, or firmware. However, counterfeit software, maps, or firmware may put the integrity of your authentic Garmin device at risk and will void the warranty of your Garmin device.


Online Auction Purchases

Products purchased through online auctions are not eligible for rebates or other special offers from Garmin warranty coverage. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification. To obtain warranty service, an original or copy of the sales receipt from the original retailer is required. Garmin will not replace missing components from any package purchased through an online auction.


Reselling Garmin Products on eBay

If you are a seller whose listing has been removed, your listing has most likely been terminated by eBay because of action taken by Garmin.  Common reasons why your listing may have been terminated include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Trademark Infringement - the item offered for sale may be an unauthentic product which infringes Garmin's intellectual property rights or the content of the listing contains unauthorized use of Garmin's protected trademarks.
  2. Copyright Infringement - the listing may contain Garmin’s copyrighted text, images, or other materials or the item offered for sale may be hardware and/or software that comprises pirated content, was offered for sale in violation of an enforceable license agreement, or unauthorized use of Garmin's copyrighted text, images, or other materials
