Garmin® Introduces New GNX™ 7- and 10-Inch Marine Instruments

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the GNX 120 and GNX 130, two new large-format marine
instrument displays designed for serious sailors who demand quality,
precision, and total integration.

“Garmin’s new GNX instruments boast the brightest and most visible
digits available in the market today, providing superior readability day
or night,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales. “Combined
with their customizable data displays, these new GNX displays make it
easier than ever for sailors to get the information they need at a
glance, allowing them to focus more on cruising or racing.”

Both the 7-inch GNX 120 and 10-inch GNX 130 have high-precision
glass-bonded monochrome ultra-glow LCD displays that show over 50 marine
and vessel parameters, including depth, speed, wind, and navigational
data. With fully customizable user profiles, the GNX 120 and GNX 130
allow the screen layout to be configured to the user’s preferred
setting. Five display configurations are available, including single,
dual and triple functions, plus Gauge and Graph mode.

Easy to set up, calibrate and use thanks to the on-unit capacitive touch
buttons, the GNX 120 and GNX 130 are also NMEA 2000® certified and can
seamlessly share sailing data between other NMEA 2000-enabled Garmin
devices. The ultra-glow anti-fog displays on the GNX 120 and GNX 130
overlay white or color digits on a black background, providing high
contrast and visibility no matter the environment. If a different
backlight color is desired, the display can be tailored by choosing from
seven different pre-set colors, or hundreds of custom colors can be

Designed to be mounted at the base of the mast or above the
companionway, the GNX 120 and GNX 130 instruments are the thinnest and
lightest displays available in the market today. Both units can be flush
mounted, and for a unique glass mast look, the GNX 120 can be flat
mounted with an optional carbon fiber mast bracket. The GNX 120 and GNX
130 can be controlled from a distance using the new GNX Keypad, an
optional accessory that features four different buttons dedicated to
preset configurations. The GNX Keypad allows sailors to adjust
background lighting of all displays from the touch of a button.

Another benefit of both the GNX 120 and GNX 130 is power consumption.
Only .36 watts is consumed during the day with no backlight, while .4
watts is used at night when only a mid-level backlight is required. This
allows for more time on the water without running the boat motor or
generator for extended periods of time.

The GNX 120, expected to be available in February 2015, will have a
suggested retail price of $899.99, and the GNX 130, expected to be
available in May 2015, will have a suggested retail of price of
$1499.99. For more information, visit
