Garmin® Introduces High-Performance GPSMAP® Multifunction Series

Offered in Both Sonar and Non-Sonar Versions

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the GPSMAP 7400
and 7600 series of multifunction displays (MFD). Offered in a sonar and
non-sonar version, the GPSMAP 7400 and 7600 series is a premier line
that streamlines high performance, usability and superior boating
features with a renowned interface that makes any time on the water more
productive and enjoyable.

“We wanted to introduce a line of multifunction units that encompassed
the performance, user-friendliness and dependability that our customers
have grown to depend on out on the water,” said Dan Bartel, vice
president of worldwide sales. “With the GPSMAP 7400 and 7600 series,
we’ve integrated the features that the mariner needs in any boating
situation. We’re offering a sonar and non-sonar version since everyone
needs a product to perform differently in various situations.”

The new GPSMAP 7400 and 7600 MFD series boasts a vibrant widescreen
display available in 7-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch sizes. With
full pinch-to-zoom touchscreen capabilities, the GPSMAP 7400 and 7600
series offers streamlined performance and integrates features that are
pivotal for the boating experience, such as digital switching, weather,
radar, thermal and IP camera visibility. Built for the casual cruiser or
sailor, this series of chartplotter offers a high performance solution
on the water.

With anglers of all types in mind, the GPSMAP 7400xsv and 7600xsv series
is also made available with premier sonar technology integrated. In
addition to offering the same screen sizes and benefits as the GPSMAP
7400 and 7600 series, the GPSMAP 7400xsv and 7600xsv series boasts
traditional HD-ID™ sonar, true dual 1kW CHIRP sonar, CHIRP DownVü and
SideVü, providing the clearest scanning sonar available on the water
while giving distinct target location and separation.

Whether utilizing the xsv or non-xsv series, this new family of GPSMAP
MFDs has built-in 10Hz GPS, allowing for faster and more accurate
position tracking and updates. Premium sailing features have also been
integrated into both series of products, offering laylines, tidal
information, enhanced wind rose, a current slider and other elements
that prove to be beneficial to sailors of all kinds.

A worldwide basemap comes preloaded on the GPSMAP 7400 series while both
BlueChart® g2 coastal and LakeVü™ HD inland lake maps are
preloaded to the xsv and non-xsv series of the GPSMAP 7600 MFDs. No
matter whether fishing a secret fishing hot spot or running the coasts,
these units have cartography covered. And with built-in Wi-Fi, the
BlueChart Mobile and Garmin Helm mobile apps can easily interface for
seamless utilization.

The new GPSMAP 7400 and 7600 xsv and non-xsv series is scheduled to be
