Garmin® debuts the RV 770 LMT-S with live services and travel data for camping enthusiasts

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the latest expansion to its RV-dedicated navigator series with
the introduction of the new RV 770 LMT-S model. Built specifically for
camping enthusiasts, the RV 770 LMT-S offers advanced RV-specific
navigation solutions, including free live services1 with
real-time traffic updates, basic weather information and more. The new
navigator offers a bright edge-to-edge 6.95-inch display that is
effortless to view any time of day. Additionally, this versatile RV
navigator is preloaded with TripAdvisor® data so drivers can
see ratings for popular travel points of interest, such as hotels,
restaurants and attractions.

“The RV 770 LMT-S offers a valuable navigation solution for RVers
wanting to make the most of their adventures,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin
vice president of global consumer sales. “It’s important for RVers to
drive without the use of bulky outdated travel sources. This new RV
navigator offers relevant travel information for places along your
route, including the option to let friends track your whereabouts along
a trip.”

Connectivity plays an essential role in the refined feature set of the
RV 770 LMT-S with the useful LiveTrack™1 functionality, a
feature that allows drivers to share their locations with friends or
loved ones to track their spot along a journey. Thanks to its built-in
Wi-Fi®, drivers can download map and software updates2
with the RV 770 LMT-S to ensure they have the most up-to-date
information, even while traveling away from home. This RV-specific
navigator also aims to keep drivers informed with trip planner settings
that can suggest attractions along a route to add entertainment value
during a road trip.

Recreational vehicle drivers require a dedicated RV navigator with
purpose-built features to simplify their travels. With the RV 770 LMT-S,
drivers can benefit from essential customized routing3 based
on the size and weight of the RV or towable trailer. The new RV 770
LMT-S boasts a comprehensive directory of RV parks and services that
allow RVers to easily find campgrounds and service locations, which can
be filtered based on preferred amenities like onsite water, internet
access and electric hookups. Campers will also be guided with helpful
RV-specific driver alerts for upcoming steep grades, bridge heights,
weight limits and more. Users will receive alerts for sharp curves along
a route, as well as fatigue warnings that activate after longer periods
of consecutive driving without any long stops along the route. The
fatigue prompt asks drivers if they are in need of a break and suggests
places nearby, such as restaurants and rest areas. RV users can even
alter their routes to include preferred roads or cities by touching the
screen with the Easy Route Shaping option.

In order to encourage safer driving, the RV 770 LMT-S offers convenient,
hands-free navigation features to allow drivers to keep their hands on
the wheel. Voice-activated navigation lets drivers control the navigator
by speaking commands to the device. What’s more, users can wirelessly
pair their navigator to a smartphone to make and receive hands-free calls4
via Bluetooth® and obtain valuable smart notifications1
as well. Any text messages, app alerts, and other relevant notifications
from a compatible smartphone will seamlessly appear alongside the map

The RV 770 LMT-S is compatible with the Garmin BC 30
Wireless Backup Camera (sold separately) that lets drivers easily view
the area directly behind the RV or trailer while in reverse.
Additionally, the navigator works with any Connect IQ™ compatible Garmin
smartwatch, such as the new fēnix®5 (sold separately),
providing driver alerts directly to the watch as well as compass
guidance from a parked RV to a destination, and back to the RV again.

The Garmin RV 770 LMT-S is expected to be available February 2017 with a
suggested retail price of $399.99 and will be available through a
variety of retailers including Camping World, the nation’s number one
retailer of RVs, RV accessories and RV-related services. For more
