Garmin® fleet 700 series expands fleet management capabilities with new open platform tablets

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Garmin fleet™ 700 tablet series for fleet management
solutions and telematics. The new series combines the power of Garmin
navigation with the vast flexibility of a scalable tablet, and allows
mobile workforces to customize every tablet in the series with their own
Android-based business application. The new fleet series features three
models: the fleet 770 establishes an open and scalable platform; the
fleet 780 and fleet 790 enhance the feature set with a built-in
dual-purpose dash camera; and the fleet 790 adds Open-SIM 4G/3G support
to take business wherever it needs to go, both in and out of the vehicle.

“Our telematics solutions partners can now benefit from fleet
management-ready tablets that are purpose-built specifically for the
commercial truck environment that will drastically expand their
opportunities,” said Chad Sallman, Garmin senior business development
manager, commercial fleet solutions. “Fleet owners can expect
cutting-edge dependable tablets with world-class navigation and complete
fleet-management solutions that can be efficiently catered to meet their
business needs.”

The innovative fleet 790 comes equipped with Open-SIM embedded cellular
connectivity (4G/3G) to empower customers with an “always-on” internet
connection when Wi-Fi® connectivity is not available. With
4G/3G support, users can extend their bandwidth to send videos, access
cloud-based applications, and eliminate the need for a personal laptop,
consumer tablet, or smartphone to complete the job. All fleet series
devices feature built-in Wi-Fi® for easy access to
over-the-air map updates, and connectivity to third-party accessories,
including back-up cameras, side-view cameras and more.

For extra peace of mind and convenience, the fleet 780 and fleet 790
utilize a dual-purpose camera to act as personal eyewitness on the road
to record HD footage and to help mitigate risks encountered on the road,
including capturing documentation for insurance purposes. If the tablet
is removed from its mount, fleet owners can optimize the camera for
inventory management, proof of delivery by easily snapping a picture
with the camera, bar code scanning, and more. In addition, the Garmin
fleet series supports navigation API’s (application program interfaces)
and offers built-in fleet management apps to help develop and fulfill
the needs of fleet owners and telematics service providers around the

Each device in the fleet 700 series features a 7-inch capacitive touch
display and boasts industrial-grade hardware specifically tailored for
long-haul commercial truck use, and a magnetic mount so drivers can
easily remove the tablet to help businesses stay “on-the-go.” The Garmin
fleet 700 series is expected to be available in December. For more
