Garmin® Pilot My-Cast℠ Announces Geo-referenced FliteCharts®, Navigation and XM Weather Integration

Digital CycloneSM, Inc., a subsidiary of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today a new version of
the Garmin Pilot My-Cast application for Apple® iOS-based devices that
offers geo-referenced approach charts, secondary navigational capability
and optional integration with XM WX Weather. Garmin Pilot My-Cast is a
premium aviation weather, flight planning, flight filing and navigation
application exclusively for customers in the U.S. and Canada.

“The use of smart devices in the cockpit is becoming more and more
ubiquitous,” said Craig Burfeind, president of Digital Cyclone. “The
added functionality of the new Pilot My-Cast increases the number of
ways in which pilots can use these devices throughout the entire flight

The newest version of Pilot My-Cast features geo-referenced FliteCharts
and airport taxi diagrams, bringing pilots a new level of situational
awareness. This latest version also can utilize the iPad’s internal GPS
receiver (or external GPS receiver, sold separately) as a means of
secondary navigation.

The new app also lets users connect to XM WX Satellite Weather
wirelessly through the Baron Mobile Link™ paired with a Satellite
Weather receiver (sold separately, subscription required) to receive
highly-detailed weather forecasts and current conditions, including high
resolution NEXRAD radar, lightning, METARs and winds aloft. Best of all,
unlike the limitations of conventional cellular transmissions, pilots
can continually view the latest weather reports while at altitude.

Similar to Pilot My-Cast’s existing iOS version, the new app includes
functions that let pilots easily create routes and file a flight plan,
view weather conditions and forecasts over their phone’s wireless
network, and access the AOPA Airport Directory.

A Pilot My-Cast application is being developed for Android devices as
well and is expected to be available in June.

The new version of Garmin Pilot My-Cast for iOS is expected to be
available in the app store in mid-April as a free download for the first
30 days. After that, users can pay a monthly fee of $9.99 or an annual
subscription of $99.99 for the base package including navigation and XM
WX Satellite Weather integration. Geo-referenced FliteCharts will be
available for an additional $49.99 annually. For more information, visit
