Garmin® introduces advanced driver assistance features for professional truck drivers with its newest dēzl™ series

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced an exciting new generation of 7-inch truck navigators – the
dēzl 780 LMT-S model and the premium dēzlCam 785
LMT-S that boasts a dash cam with cutting-edge advanced1
driver assistance features2 for truck drivers. Both
navigators are designed to help big rig drivers stay connected, alert,
and on track during long hours of service thanks to new built-in Wi-Fi®
and free live services3 for traffic, weather, truck parking,
and more.

“For the very first time, the trucking industry will have the ability to
receive advanced camera-assisted warnings from their truck navigator,”
said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Road
safety has always been a priority for Garmin, which is why we’re pleased
to introduce features that can warn truckers of potential incidents.”

The all-in-one dēzlCam 785 adds the built-in dash cam4 to
automatically record the drive and save video files of detected
incidents. The dash cam provides advanced driver assistance features,
such as forward collision and lane departure warnings, to encourage
safer driving behavior.

Featuring high-resolution 7-inch displays with powered magnetic mounts,
the dēzl series pairs with the new subscription-free Garmin eLog
compliant ELD5 to wirelessly control, view, and record Hours
of Service on the dēzl navigator’s display. What’s more, the Garmin eLog
app is preloaded into the dēzl 780 and dēzlCam 785 navigators,
eliminating the need of smartphones or tablets to complete the
FMCSA-compliant solution. The modernized feature-set adds built-in Wi-Fi
for truckers to easily update software, maps, and points of interest
(POIs) without needing to use a computer. By downloading the free
Smartphone Link app, truck drivers will also receive free live services
for traffic and weather updates in addition to time-saving live parking
information that finds available 18-wheeler parking spaces at truck
stops. TripAdvisor® allows owners to easily see ratings for
travel POIs along the haul, such as restaurants, hotels and attractions.
The Dispatch and Track feature is beneficial as an easy route monitoring
solution that lets dispatchers send text messages and addresses to truck
drivers while tracking their routes.

Core navigation features from the new dēzl series include custom truck
routing6 options based on the size, load, and weight of the
truck. Helpful route warnings provide alerts for upcoming hazards such
as bridge heights, weight limits, sharp curves, and steep grades. The
new dēzl series also offers voice control, while Bluetooth®
technology is available for hands-free calling7, and smart
notifications on the dēzl’s display. The dēzl series arrives preloaded
with detailed maps of North America8, millions of new and
popular points of interest thanks to Foursquare® data, as
well as a preloaded directory of Truck and Trailer Services, an
important feature that gives truck drivers the ability to filter truck
stops by brand or amenity – “Flying J” or “Showers,” for example. Break
planning has been simplified on the new dēzl series with on-screen break
notifications in conjunction with recommended trucker-friendly stops
like restaurants or upcoming rest areas along the route.

In addition to pairing with the Garmin eLog compliant ELD, the new dēzl
navigators are compatible with the Garmin BC 35 Wireless
Backup Camera (sold separately) for customers to easily see behind their
truck when in reverse.

The dēzl 780 LMT-S has a suggested retail price of $399.99 and the
dēzlCam 785 LMT-S is $499.99. Both devices are expected to be available
in June. For more information, visit
