Garmin® Automated Logbook Syncs Across Garmin Pilot™ iOS Devices and flyGarmin

Garmin Pilot also adds Nearest navigation feature and more

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced electronic logbook capabilities built-in to the Garmin Pilot
application for iPad/iPhone and seamless integration with flyGarmin.
While flying with Garmin Pilot, the logbook feature provides automatic
record keeping of commonly recorded data pertaining to each flight.
Information such as date, total duration of each flight, number of
takeoffs and landings, route and more are all conveniently sorted and
saved for easy reference across Garmin Pilot devices and within
flyGarmin. Built-in redundancy also allows pilots to make manual logbook
entries via the flyGarmin website or Garmin Pilot app, where both
entries are automatically synced and stored to display the same
information. Additional capabilities include the ability to record
endorsements, track flight currency, generate historical flight reports
and more. In addition to electronic logbook documentation, Garmin Pilot
now incorporates Nearest navigation functionality so pilots can see
at-a-glance, the nearest airport, navigational aid, airspace or
facility, relative to their location.

“We continue to pack more features and capability into Garmin Pilot to
bring our customers an all-inclusive application that gives pilots the
information they need from pre-flight planning and enroute navigation,
to now include post-flight logbook documentation,” said Carl Wolf, vice
president of aviation marketing and sales. “We’re excited about these
free, cloud-based synchronization services between flyGarmin and Garmin
Pilot, which provides pilots with a simplistic and powerful time-savings
tool – all built into a single application.”

Automated Logbook

Integrated within Garmin Pilot, logbook provides pilots with an
automatic and convenient way to maintain a consistent log of their
flights, while accessing in-flight navigation information within one
application. While on takeoff roll, Garmin Pilot detects a change in
airspeed and altitude, which initiates the logbook function to
automatically begin recording. Pertinent information such as date,
duration, total flight time, route and the number of flight segments are
automatically recorded and logged within Garmin Pilot, creating a
provisional logbook entry for the pilot to review and accept. Pilots may
modify the provisional log entries or manually add flight information
into the logbook as needed. Additional data fields may also be manually
entered to specify aircraft type and identifier, hobbs and tachometer
times, as well as pilot-in-command, solo, cross-country, actual and
simulated instrument flight time. For added reassurance the logbook data
is automatically stored on the flyGarmin website, as well as within the
Garmin Pilot application. Likewise, logbook entries made within
flyGarmin are also saved and synced within Garmin Pilot.

Logbook provides even more opportunities for record keeping, including a
tab for pilot certificate and currency endorsements. Within the Garmin
Pilot application, flight instructors and other designated authorities
may document flight reviews, Instrument Proficiency Checks (IPC),
pre-solo knowledge test sign-offs and more. Logbook also provides pilots
with quick and easy access to flight currency information. A dedicated
currency tab identifies FAA, EASA and TCCA day/night and instrument
currency types so pilots can quickly reference whether or not, for
example, they are current to fly passengers or at night. For easy
reference, logbook automatically generates a report to display past
flight information by day, month and year.

Nearest Navigation Feature

Now included at the top of the main menu, Garmin Pilot incorporates
nearest navigation functionality to give pilots the option to locate the
closest airport, NAVAID, intersection, user waypoint and more, relative
to their location. Pilots can also quickly locate Visual Reporting
Points (VRPs), Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs) and their
associated frequencies, as well as nearest airspace for added
situational awareness. To assist with the decision-making process,
pilots are provided with a ruler line that identifies the selected
airport on the moving map, as well as course and distance information
relative to the location of their aircraft.

In addition to these new capabilities, Garmin Pilot calculates and
displays density altitude information on the weather tab within the
airport page. This calculation is automatically displayed within Garmin
Pilot so pilots can view at-a-glance, density altitude data, which is
critical to aircraft performance. An enhanced distance-measuring tool
has also been modified to allow for easier use and functionality within
the moving map page.

Garmin Pilot 7.4 for iOS is expected to be available next week during
EAA AirVenture as a free update, providing existing customers access to
these latest features. For new customers, Garmin Pilot is available in
