Introducing the Garmin eLog™, a subscription-free, FMCSA-compliant ELD for truck drivers

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Garmin eLog™ Compliant ELD – a sleek, easy-to-use,
hours-of-service (HOS) electronic logging device (ELD) designed to be
used by drivers who are currently required to prepare HOS records of
duty status (RODS) in compliance with recent amendments to the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), commonly known as the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ELD mandate. The Garmin eLog
is easy to install and setup and comes with the benefit of having no
subscription fees. The versatile device is equipped with an adaptor that
supports 9-pin J1939 and 6-pin J1708 diagnostic ports to fit nearly any
truck. Truckers can easily download the free Garmin eLog™ App to a
compatible smartphone1 to complete their ELD compliance
solution. Once downloaded, RODS are securely stored in the driver’s
smartphone with the option to share Garmin eLog data for inspection

“The Garmin eLog automatically prepares and stores hours-of-service and
records of duty status with no subscription fees giving truckers one
less thing to worry about when they’re on the road,” said Dan Bartel,
Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Users are now getting a
solution for ELD compliance that is both flexible and simple to use.”

With the Garmin eLog, truckers can rest assured as the ELD automatically
prepares RODS and provides drivers with easy access to their duty status
and remaining driving hours. Additionally, the ELD securely stores RODS
locally to the truck driver’s smartphone. A USB port connection is also
built into the hardware to allow for easy inspections and retrievals of
any ELD data.

The Garmin eLog is compatible with the Garmin dēzl™ 570, 770, or
dēzlCam™ trucking navigators to receive all the new benefits offered by
the ELD right on the navigation display screen. This convenient pairing
eliminates the need for truckers to glance at a smartphone for ELD data,
and leaves information stored securely on the navigation device instead
of the smartphone.

In addition, the Garmin eLog will soon include Driver Vehicle Inspection
Reporting (DVIR), International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) logs, and have
the ability to transfer RODS seamlessly via Bluetooth® technology.

The Garmin eLog Compliant ELD is expected to be available in the third
quarter of 2017 with a suggested retail price of $249.99. For more
