Garmin® brings advanced navigation to the BMW® Motorrad Navigator VI

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced a new generation of advanced navigation for motorcyclists with
the introduction of the BMW Motorrad Navigator VI. Combining the latest
advancements in Garmin navigation with BMW-specific functions, the new
Navigator VI features a resistive 5-inch touch window display that is
easy-to-read, particularly under bright sunlight conditions thanks to
its circular polarizer filter. To enhance the motorcycling experience,
this new navigator introduces a new GPS and Glonass receiver that allows
it to spot additional satellites at any given time. The Navigator VI
also has the power to stream music via Bluetooth®, which lets
riders enjoy and control their favorite music from a compatible Apple®
or Android device as well as other Bluetooth media sources
through the navigator to a Bluetooth headset.

“It’s exciting to see the evolution of the BMW Motorrad Navigator series
throughout the years,” said Matt Munn, Garmin automotive OEM managing
director. “With the BMW Motorrad Navigator VI, we are implementing
advanced features that allow music streaming directly to a rider’s
Bluetooth headset and new sophisticated routing options that will
enhance the overall riding experience for enthusiasts.”

Advanced navigation features on the Navigator VI facilitate the needs
and situational awareness of motorcyclists on the road. Riders will now
have access to free live services1 that provide real time
live traffic2, weather radar visibility, smart notifications1
directly on the viewer display screen, lifetime maps3 and
more. With the new Round Trip Routing feature, riders are given access
to route configurations by taking time, distance and temporary
destinations into account to make the most of their ride. In conjunction
with curvy routing mode and the alternative to avoid motorways, the
Navigator VI now has the option to deviate from unchanging and often
wearisome major roads that can take away from the thrill of an
adventurous ride.

To provide the most efficient riding experience, the Navigator VI is
preloaded with BMW Motorrad Dealer points of interest as well as trip
planning capabilities to create trips with 30 via points and
approximately 125 shaping points between each via point. A tracking app
is also available to share locations with friends and family during a
ride. On select BMW motorcycles with navigation prep, riding enthusiasts
can even use MMC (multi-controller) commands that guide motorcyclists to
their favorite locations while their hands remain firmly on the
handlebars. Additionally, the Navigator VI can be used to control Garmin
VIRB action cameras (sold separately) wirelessly to record video, snap
pictures during a ride, and show off meaningful video with G-Metrix
sensor data built within the action camera that can show how far, how
high, and how fast users went during a ride.

The BMW Motorrad Navigator VI is expected to be available April 2017 at
BMW Motorrad dealers in Europe and North America.
