Garmin® expands integrated driving recording technology with auto manufacturer Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroën

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the expansion of its sophisticated intelligent driving video
recorder (IDVR) technology with Chinese automobile manufacturing partner
Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroën Automobile Limited (DPCA). Garmin first
introduced its IDVR program solution with the Peugeot 3008 car model and
this announcement now adds the recently-announced Dongfeng Citroën C4L
car model to the exclusive list. IDVR technology focuses on recording
road footage in high-quality 1080p/30fps and boasts advanced driver
assistance systems (ADAS) such as forward collision and lane departure

“IDVR is the first product in which Garmin has started a strategic
cooperation with DPCA,” said Kip Dondlinger, Garmin automotive OEM
manager of product and user experience. “What’s more, this opportunity
has allowed us to establish an essential relationship with DPCA to
enhance driver awareness for customers.”

The factory installed Garmin IDVR is integrated on the top interior
section of DPCA vehicles, built-in directly behind the driving rearview
mirror. With this favorable setup, the IDVR camera can monitor roadway
behavior in front of the host vehicle and relay forward collision
warnings if users drive too close to the vehicle ahead. Additionally,
lane departure warnings are also programmed into the IDVR system to warn
drivers of potential collision risks if they deviate from a driving lane
or into oncoming traffic.

The driver awareness alerts of IDVR work in conjunction with vital
recording capabilities to help create peace of mind for DPCA customers.
The recorded footage is preserved in a microSD card housed in the IDVR
compartment, once the footage is reviewed, the on-screen display will
feature date/time, speed, and turning signal information. In case of
potential road incidents, the unit will automatically save files on
impact triggered by the CAN signal.

Garmin is currently manufacturing the IDVR hardware in its
recently-opened factory in China as it continues to strengthen and
expand its strategic relationship with DPCA. As part of the relationship
expansion, DPCA plans to preinstall the Garmin IDVR to a diversified
list of future Dongfeng Peugeot and Dongfeng Citroën vehicle models.
