Garmin® Receives ODA Approval from FAA

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today that it has
received Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) from the Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA).

The ODA designation permits Garmin to conduct certain activities on
behalf of the FAA, such as the authority to issue Supplemental Type
Certificates (STCs) approving installations of Garmin avionics in
aircraft. This delegation converts the existing Garmin Organization
Designated Airworthiness Representative (ODAR) and Designated Alteration
Station (DAS) organizations to ODA and extends the authority to include
Garmin’s Salem, Oregon, facility.

“Garmin has a long history of working well with the FAA,” said Gary
Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing. “The ODA designation
continues that legacy and reflects the high standards and experienced
staff at Garmin. We are very proud to receive this ODA designation
because it confirms our core principles of innovation, performance,
quality, value and service.”
