Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Martin Truex Jr.’s Beechjet 400A is equipped with Garmin® G5000 integrated flight deck

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced that Martin Truex Jr., Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver
of the No. 78 Furniture Row Toyota and the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR
Cup Series Regular Season Champion, has become Garmin’s latest brand
ambassador. As part of his role as a Garmin ambassador, Martin’s
Beechjet has been equipped with a G5000™ integrated flight deck.

“We are honored that Martin Truex Jr. has joined the Garmin team,” said
Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing.
“Garmin has a long-standing relationship with Martin that extends back
to the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation, which supports underfunded cancer
initiatives related to ovarian and childhood cancers. As a leader on the
racetrack and philanthropist within the community, Garmin is proud to
continue and expand our relationship with Martin who will serve as a
passionate ambassador of the Garmin brand.”

Martin added: “I am excited to join the Garmin team which merges my
passion for racing with my enthusiasm for fishing, hunting and outdoor
activities and now, into the aviation segment with the G5000 integrated
flight deck upgrade in my Beechjet 400A. We utilize the Beechjet
extensively as a business tool to travel to over 36 NASCAR events
annually. With added safety benefits provided by the G5000 such as
Synthetic Vision Technology and flight envelope protection, we will be
able to operate with the best situational awareness tools available on
the market.”

Martin’s Beechjet has been equipped with the G5000 integrated flight
deck upgrade, which significantly modernizes the cockpit with zero-time
avionics and provides a path to fulfill global airspace modernization
initiatives, including Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B). The G5000 system also supports a wide range of capabilities
including coupled wide area augmentation system (WAAS/SBAS) and PBN/RNP
0.3 with LPV/APV approaches.

In addition to the aircraft’s previously completed upgrades, including
Genuine Hawker winglets and a complete interior refurbishment and custom
exterior paint scheme, all modifications are part of Textron Aviation’s
Hawker 400 XPR upgrade program.

The G5000 provides the flight crew with an elevated level of situational
awareness and increased safety benefits with Synthetic Vision Technology
(SVT™), which presents a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, traffic and
the runway environment on the high resolution widescreen flight
displays. Boasting tangible benefits such as reduced operational cost,
significant weight savings and more, the G5000 upgrade will further
extend the overall life of the aircraft for Martin.

The installation of the G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade in Martin’s
Beechjet was recently completed at Textron Aviation’s Service Center in
Tampa, Florida.
