Garmin Mobile™ Application To Offer New Features On BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile Smartphones

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today upgrades to
Garmin Mobile that include a new user-friendly interface and Google
Local™ search. These upgrades will be available on a variety of handsets
and platforms including BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile
smartphones. These new features are in addition to a long list of rich
features and real-time content included with Garmin Mobile’s current
subscription based service that includes turn-by-turn, voice prompted
directions, as well as traffic, weather conditions and forecasts, fuel
prices and more. Garmin will display the Garmin Mobile enhancements at
its CTIA Wireless trade show booth (#6639) in Las Vegas, Nevada, April
1-3, 2008.

When the new Garmin Mobile application is launched, customers will first
notice the new nüvi-like interface, with “Where To?” and “View Map”
icons on the smartphone display. Once “Where To?” is selected, colorful
icons such as “Address,” “Recent Finds,” “Food and Hotel” and “Google
Local” streamline the number of keystrokes required before selecting a
destination and receiving

turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions. If a turn is missed en route,
Garmin Mobile automatically recalculates the route based on the user’s
current location. Garmin Mobile has an extensive points of interest
database – places like hotels, restaurants, ATMs, gas stations,
airports, and more – thanks to the over six-million integrated points of
interest and Google Local search. Garmin Mobile is also integrated with
the phone’s address book so that users can navigate directly to a
contact’s address stored on their smartphone.

The Google Local search capability lets users harness points of interest
information via the World Wide Web. It allows users to look for
locations by typing in key word searches as they would if they were on
their desktop computer. If looking for a coffee shop with free Wi Fi
access, simply type the phrase in the search box and a list of venues
will appear based on proximity to the user’s current location. In
addition, Garmin has created a “quick search” feature that lets users
search Google Local via categories – such as food, lodging, fuel, and
more – rather than typing a word or phrase into the Google Local search
box. Detailed information can be displayed including descriptions,
business address & phone numbers, and a user-contributed rating, where
applicable. Once the user selects a location, they can save the
destination to their favorites folder, call the destination, or navigate
to it with Garmin’s intuitive turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions.

In addition to navigation, Garmin Mobile includes free access to
constantly-updating information like real-time traffic, fuel prices,
weather forecasts, and more.

Since Garmin Mobile is a subscription based solution, mapping data is
stored on Garmin’s servers, not on the device itself. Therefore,
customers have the advantage of the most up-to-date mapping information
available directly from Garmin’s servers. In order to access Garmin’s
network, the smartphone must have a data plan for network access.

The newest version of Garmin Mobile is rolling-out on BlackBerry,
Symbian and Windows Mobile OS smartphones in July 2008. For more
