Garmin® GMX 200 Upgrades Aid Pilots In Flight and Taxiing

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today enhancements to
the GMX 200 multi-function display (MFD) whereby pilots now have the
benefit of Garmin FliteCharts® and Garmin SafeTaxi®. These new database
offerings greatly enhance situational awareness during taxiing and
simplify the availability of procedural information during all phases of
pilot operations. FliteCharts and SafeTaxi will be featured at Garmin’s
Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In booth, April 8-13, 2008, in Lakeland, Florida.

Garmin FliteCharts is an electronic version of the National Aeronautical
Chart Office (NACO) U.S. Terminal Procedures Publication. FliteCharts
lets pilots quickly find and view all NACO Departure Procedures (DP),
Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs), approach charts, and airport
diagrams on the MFD. GMX 200’s equipped with FliteCharts will have
access to all U.S. approach plates currently published by NACO, which
includes 14,000 approach plates at over 2,900 airports. FliteChart are
not geo-referenced and updates are offered every 28-days.

Thanks to Garmin SafeTaxi, GMX 200 owners can taxi around unfamiliar
airports with ease. SafeTaxi identifies runways, taxiways, FBOs,
hangars, and the aircraft’s exact location on the field. The SafeTaxi
information is seamlessly integrated with GMX 200’s existing basemap at
the appropriate map range setting, and SafeTaxi details increase as the
range setting decreases. Since SafeTaxi is geo-referenced, pilots will
benefit by seeing their aircraft icon move precisely along the taxiway
diagram. SafeTaxi includes over 850 U.S. airports and diagrams, and
Garmin continues to develop and offer new airport charts as additional
data becomes available. SafeTaxi updates are available every 56-days.

The GMX 200 is a popular MFD that is compatible with Garmin’s GNS™
400/500 series, GNS 480, GDL® 69/69A, GTX™ 330/33, GDL 90, GWX 68, and
many other manufacturers’ GPS navigation equipment. The display is
almost 20-percent larger than other aftermarket panel mounted MFDs, and
it features advanced backlighting technology that vividly displays
colors and images in all lighting conditions. The GMX 200 displays the
aircraft’s position relative to terrain, obstructions, weather, airways,
navaids, restricted airspace, and more. The unit includes high
resolution, worldwide terrain and hydrography data. Map scales range
from one-fourth of a mile to 2,500 miles, and a unique split screen
function lets pilots simultaneously view two charting options along with
the vertical profile for the elevation of the terrain ahead of the
aircraft. Garmin ChartView, which is powered by Jeppesen and features
geo-referenced approach charts, continues to be an option for all GMX
200 operators.

Pilots purchasing a new GMX 200 between April and December 2008 will
receive a recent version of FliteCharts and SafeTaxi preloaded on the
MFD at no additional cost. Existing GMX 200 customers can add Garmin
FliteCharts and SafeTaxi to their GMX 200 by purchasing a SD datacard
that is loaded via the GMX 200’s front loading SD card-slot. This 2GB
datacard includes FliteCharts and SafeTaxi. The expected street price
for the GMX 200’s FliteCharts and SafeTaxi SD card is $695. FliteCharts
and SafeTaxi upgrades are available on a single-cycle or annual basis.
FliteCharts are $95 per update or $395 annually (13 consecutive cycles)
and SafeTaxi is $35 per update or $195 annually (seven consecutive
cycles). Additional information is available at
