Garmin® Introduces an Onboard Eyewitness with dēzlCam™: A Premium All-in-One Trucking Navigator with a Built-in Dash Cam

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced dēzlCam, its first all-in-one trucking navigator with a
built-in dash cam that serves as an onboard eyewitness. Truckers can
rely on firsthand video footage that continually records1 the
drive and automatically saves video footage on impact. With a focus on
features that matter most to truckers, the dēzlCam provides custom truck
routing2 for the size and weight of a driver’s truck as well
as route warnings for bridge heights, weight limits, sharp curves, steep
grades and more.

“The dēzlCam is an innovative navigation solution for truckers,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “As technology
evolves, so do the needs of truck drivers who spend their lives on the
road. Truckers will like dēzlCam especially because of its premium
trucking features combined with an integrated dash cam that records
proof of road incidents and protects their driving reputation. The
combination of these features adds significant value to our trucking

This premium truck navigator features a 6-inch pinch-to-zoom display, a
built-in dash cam with an adjustable swivel lens, and a magnetic mount
to quickly secure or remove the dēzlCam from a driver’s truck. The
built-in dash cam starts recording as soon as the dēzlCam is powered on,
while the Incident Detection (G-sensor) automatically saves footage of
collisions upon impact. Location, speed, date and time data can be
optionally recorded allowing drivers to know precisely when and where an
incident occurred. The Snapshot feature captures still images and
provides truckers the freedom to remove the dēzlCam from their truck to
take close-up pictures. Users can also play back driving footage
directly on the device, or review on a computer using

Designed for life on the road, the dēzlCam includes essential features
to help truckers along their way. A comprehensive directory of preloaded
TruckDown® Locations and Services make it easy to find places
highly rated by truckers. Drivers can filter trucking points of interest
to find locations with their preferred brands or amenities. The dēzlCam
is also bundled with Foursquare® data that adds millions of
new and popular points of interest to the navigator’s searchable
database. Easy Route Shaping lets drivers modify a route to include
preferred cities or roads by touching the screen. The Up Ahead feature
conveniently displays a constant stream of nearby services – such as
upcoming rest areas, fuel stations and restaurants – along a route. The
dēzlCam provides a history log to record fuel usage, IFTA mileage, and
hours of service. Additionally, the dēzlCam displays mile marker
information, automatic time zone changes and also alerts drivers of
upcoming state and country borders.

Created with safety in mind, the dēzlCam offers advanced navigation
features that aid truckers in reaching their desired destination.
Voice-activated navigation lets truckers control the dēzlCam with their
voice, while Bluetooth® technology allows for hands-free
calling3 and pairing with a Bluetooth-enabled headset (sold
separately). The dēzlCam is also compatible with the Garmin BC™ 30
Wireless Backup Camera (sold separately) to easily see behind a truck
when in reverse. Spoken Garmin Real Directions™ can help drivers locate
hard-to-find addresses with spoken directions that use recognizable
landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. Active Lane Guidance with
helpful voice prompts indicates the proper lane needed for a trucker’s
route, while realistic Junction View imagery helps navigate complex
interchanges with ease.

The dēzlCam comes equipped with preloaded maps of North America with
free lifetime map updates4, as well as free HD Digital traffic5
that provides updates as often as every 30 seconds. Drivers can also
download the free Smartphone Link6 app to access live weather
radar on the dēzlCam and other real-time data services from a compatible
iPhone® or Android™ smartphone.

The Garmin dēzlCam is expected to be available this month with a
suggested retail price of $499.99. For additional information, visit
