Garmin® introduces the next generation of navigation for professional truck drivers with the dēzl 580 LMT-S

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
introduced the dēzl™ 580 LMT-S, the only truck navigator on the market
that offers easy break planning, built-in Wi-Fi for seamless updates,
live services1, and a full suite of smart1
solutions to assist truckers on every route. The rugged dēzl 580 LMT-S
features an easy-to-read 5.0-inch display, customizable truck routing2
for the size and weight of a truck, plus all the truck-specific
navigation features found throughout the Garmin dēzl product line – like
warnings for upcoming bridge heights and steep grades. Easy Break
Planning is now possible thanks to timely break planning notifications
with suggestions for upcoming truck stops, weigh stations, rest areas,
and more. When truck drivers wirelessly connect the dēzl 580 LMT-S to
the new Garmin eLog™compliant ELD3, important
Hours of Service can be seen on the navigator’s display.

“Not only does the dēzl 580 LMT-S take the guesswork out of break
planning, but it also gives truckers a simple solution for HOS
compliance if used with our new Garmin eLog ELD,” said Dan Bartel,
Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “One of the features
we’re most excited about is the dēzl 580’s built-in Wi-Fi, so truck
drivers can easily update maps and software with a touch of a button and
avoid having to use a computer.”

For truck drivers who spend a significant amount of their time on the
road, the dēzl 580 LMT-S is prepared for the unexpected with the Truck &
Trailer Services directory that lets truckers easily filter truck stops
by preferred brands or amenities. The dēzl 580 LMT-S can also receive
free real-time data when wirelessly connected to a trucker’s smartphone
using the free Smartphone Link mobile app.1 Once paired, the
truck driver can use a wide range of features from free live traffic,
weather forecasts, and much more. Text messages and calendar reminders1
can conveniently appear right on the navigation display allowing truck
drivers to stow their phones away, with their eyes focused ahead and
their hands on the steering wheel. The new Dispatch and Track1
entry-level truck monitoring solution allows business owners and
dispatchers to send text messages and addresses to their drivers with
the option to track their routes to completion. Truckers will also
benefit from Bluetooth® technology for hands-free calling4
through the navigator’s amplified speakers to make it easy to hear
information over loud road noise.

The dēzl 580 LMT-S is loaded with convenient features to help truck
drivers efficiently navigate the best route to meet their needs. Truck
parking data5 is available to help truckers find accessible
18-wheeler parking spaces at truck stops and rest stops. Easy Route
Shaping lets truckers effortlessly alter routes to include preferred
roads or cities by using the touchscreen, and Truck Profiles makes it
easy to quickly switch between trailer sizes with the simple touch of a
button. TripAdvisor® data gives drivers access to ratings for
popular travel points such as hotels, restaurants, and attractions.
Voice-activated navigation lets truckers control the navigator with
their voice while their hands remain on the steering wheel. Spoken
Garmin Real Directions™ add useful navigational cues with recognizable
landmarks, buildings, and traffic lights to easily guide truck drivers
to their destination.

Preloaded with maps of North America, the dēzl 580 LMT-S offers free
lifetime map updates.6 The navigation device iscompatible
with the Garmin BC™ 30 wireless backup camera7 so drivers can
see what is happening behind the truck when in reverse. The dēzl 580
LMT-S also works with the subscription-free Garmin eLog compliant ELD3
solution, to easily record Hours of Service and more.

The Garmin dēzl 580 LMT-S has a suggested retail price of $299.99 and is
expected to be available in September. For more information, visit
