The zūmo® 396 motorcycle navigator from Garmin® brings live features to stay connected on every ride

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the rugged zūmo 396 LMT-S, a GPS designed specifically for
motorcyclists that want to turn their routes into thrilling experiences.
The rugged navigator offers a glove-friendly, 4.3-inch display in a new
embodiment and packs a diverse feature-set ranging from clear,
turn-by-turn directions, free real-time services1, built-in
Wi-Fi®, preloaded TripAdvisor®points of interest,
and for the thrill seekers – twisty adventurous routing options to
enhance every ride.

“Over the years, our customers have come to rely on the zūmo’s ability
to provide easy motorcycle-dedicated navigation,” said Dan Bartel,
Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Now, with the zūmo 396,
riders can confidently venture out on the road, staying informed of the
things that matter most, including updates for live traffic and weather
conditions that could significantly impact their journey.”

Staying connected is simple with the zūmo 396. Using the Garmin
Smartphone link app, owners can wirelessly pair their Bluetooth®-enabled
smartphones to the zūmo for access to a suite of free live services1,
including traffic conditions and weather updates. Riders can safely
store away their smartphones for convenient hands-free calling, in
addition to receiving key Smartphone Link1 features such as
smart notifications, and LiveTrack– a feature that gives
riders the option to share their locations with friends who want to
track their adventures.

Built-in Wi-Fi® allows riders to easily keep maps, software,
and points of interest up-to-date on the navigator without the need for
a computer. The zūmo 396 also simplifies the planning, sharing, and
tracking of routes by making it easy for riders to swiftly export GPX
files1 – files containing preferred routes – from their
mobile devices to the zūmo for solo or group rides. The zūmo 396
enhances the adventure with convenient on-screen controls for music2
and media sourced from a rider’s Bluetooth-enabled phone or media
player. To make the most of their adventures, riders can choose their
route preferences using the Garmin Adventurous Routing
settings to limit major highways and discover those hidden, winding,
hilly roads. What’s more, the zūmo includes detailed maps of North
America3, millions of Foursquare® POIs and new
TripAdvisor® ratings for restaurants, hotels, and attractions
along a route or near a destination.

The zūmo 396 is equipped with new Automatic Incident Notifications1
if an incident occurs, the zūmo can automatically send a text
notification with GPS location information to a predetermined contact.
The navigator also encourages rider awareness and safer driving by
providing helpful rider alerts4 for upcoming sharp curves,
railroad crossings, state helmet laws, red light/speed cameras, and
more. Built to withstand the elements, the zūmo 396 is resistant to fuel
vapors, UV rays and harsh weather.5

The zūmo 396 LMT-S has a suggested retail price of $399.99, and is
expected to be available in April. For more information, visit
