Garmin® presents a wealth of innovative automotive OEM solutions at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES)

OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced a host of updates that showcase the ongoing growth of its
Automotive OEM (original equipment manufacturer) business as well as the
robust capabilities of its diverse product lineup. Garmin will unveil
the latest upgrades to its world-renowned navigation software,
enhancements to its infotainment platforms, a demo exhibiting augmented
reality technology, and their current work on integrated cameras and
wearable solutions. Garmin will present its automotive OEM products in
booth (30342) at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las
Vegas, Jan. 8-11.

“We are looking forward to the opportunity of showcasing all the hard
work our team has put together for current and future projects at this
year’s CES,” said Matt Munn, Garmin automotive OEM managing director.
“Whether it’s the inclusion of Garmin wearables with unique OEM vehicle
integration, or developments with connected vehicle navigation and
augmented reality, this year’s show will help us communicate the
company’s relentless commitment to infotainment enhancements and
innovation on a global scale.”

Advancements in Garmin navigation continue moving forward thanks to a
slew of new features set to launch as a global OEM solution beginning in
2020. Customers will be able to take advantage of a hybrid navigation
system that powers connected vehicles with real-time, cloud-based
destination search and routing. In situations where connectivity is not
available, the navigation solution utilizes on-board maps and routing to
provide an uncompromised navigation experience. Other improvements
include intelligent map labeling, and a new intuitive route-shaping
feature for custom routes. The platform will also contain the company’s
RouteCast™ Weather system for mile-by-mile route-specific forecasts. In
preparation to support upcoming electric vehicle (EV) product launches,
Garmin will reveal its latest EV feature set.

Garmin is also bringing back its signature scalable infotainment
platform with a digital instrument cluster to CES and adds integration
with wearable products—designed by Garmin—for driver monitoring and
vehicle telematics. What’s more, the company will soon announce a new
OEM strategic relationship to integrate its wearable products with
vehicles. By working with one of its ecosystem collaborators, Tapkey,
Garmin will present a new Bluetooth® based digital key
solution using Garmin wearables to unlock car doors. Tapkey gives app
developers, service providers, and lock manufacturers the ability to add
digital key access to their products. During CES, Garmin will
specifically showcase how its wearables can also monitor driver stress
and display the driver’s fitness information using the Garmin vívoactive®
3 GPS smartwatch.

In addition, the company will discuss recent developments to their
integrated camera technology products. Garmin is in the process of
developing its third integrated DVR (Digital Video Recorder) which is
designed to integrate with the head unit and other vehicle electronics.
As of today, Garmin has produced two OEM camera DVR products installed
in multiple vehicle programs with PSA Group and plans to incorporate
additional camera products for a new auto OEM in the year 2020.

To highlight some of its research and development work, Garmin will also
exhibit a demo of its augmented reality technology advancements and
demonstrate multi-model navigation solutions. The latter research can
automatically provide routes to guide users to their destinations using
a combination of driving and mass transit.
