Garmin® Announces the Addition of Pathways, Vertical Power Support and New Rebate Offers for the G3X™ Experimental and LSA Glass Cockpit

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today the addition of
pathways guidance to the G3X experimental and light sport aircraft (LSA)
avionics system. Additionally, Garmin has developed a clear and easy to
read G3X display interface for the Vertical Power VP-X and VP-200
Electronic Circuit Breaker System.

“The G3X is known for bringing proven G1000-like features to the LSA and
experimental aircraft markets,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice
president of marketing. “Garmin is continuing to do that today with the
addition of pathways and Vertical Power support. Navigation, state of
the art controls, automation, and at-a-glance monitoring of aircraft
electrical systems have never been easier or more accessible to the
experimental and sport pilot.”

Pathways is a synthetic vision, or SVX™, feature that simplifies
navigation by displaying a three-dimensional, perspective view of the
flight path on the primary flight display. With the pathways feature
enabled, enroute legs, DME arcs, arrival and departure procedures and
ILS or GPS/WAAS vertical approaches, when used with a compatible
external IFR GPS/WAAS navigator, are displayed as a series of outlined
windows on the G3X PFD. The windows vary in size to depict the flight
path in perspective, making it easy for pilots to follow the “highway in
the sky.”

When flying an ILS approach using the G3X and compatible external VHF
NAV receiver, pilots will take advantage of Garmin’s patent-pending
system whereby SVX uses ILS signals to position the pathways. So when
pilots fly through the pathway windows on an ILS approach, they will be
aligned with the precision glideslope. Like SVX itself and other SVX
features, pathways may be enabled or disabled through a PFD menu option.

In addition to gaining pathways, G3X customers now also have the benefit
of a new display interface for Vertical Power VP-200 and VP-X Electronic
Circuit Breaker Systems. This interface provides Vertical Power-equipped
installations with a fully integrated and easy to use VP-200 or VP-X
display solution.

The G3X is a customizable PFD/MFD combination that features one, two or
three all-glass displays; magnetometer; ADAHRS (combined air data and
AHRS unit) and engine monitoring. Thanks to its building block design,
customers can create a high performance panel that is tailored to their

Garmin is now offering rebates of up to $3,000 on G3X single and dual
screen system purchases made between March 28 and April 29, 2011.
TruTrak is offering a $2,000 rebate on their GX Pilot flight control
system with new purchases of G3X systems during the same time period.
