Garmin® Approach™ GPS Golf Devices Now Preloaded with More Than 40,000 Global Courses

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, today announced that there are
now more than 40,000 worldwide golf courses preloaded and available for
Approach GPS watch and handheld users. With the addition of these
courses, Garmin now offers the most courses of any golfing device on the
market. Courses will come preloaded on new Approach units, while current
Approach owners will be able to download all of the new courses to their
device at no additional cost.

“We’re thrilled to announce that we now have the largest selection of
courses available,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide
sales. “With Garmin Approach devices, we want to ensure that golfers
have an upper hand when they play, and having more than 40,000 courses
available is a big part of that.”

Each course is displayed as full-color CourseView™ diagrams1,
so golfers are able to preview hole details like traps, green shapes and
more. Golfers will also get precise distances to the front, middle and
back of the green, as well as layup and dogleg distances.

In addition to course data on Approach devices, golfers will also be
able to access data through the recently updated Garmin Connect Mobile
app. Golfers can view their scores and stats from each round, and track
their progress over time. Garmin Connect Mobile also provides course
analysis, so golfers can be aware of their own trends and tendencies to
improve their game.
