Introducing the Garmin® Delta™ XC Series: Bringing New Features to its Popular Line of E-Collars for Dogs

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Delta XC series – proven electronic dog training devices
with new, premium features in one compact and easy-to-use system.

“The Delta series has been popular since its introduction nearly two
years ago,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.
“Since that time, our customers have given us great feedback, and we
listened. The new XC line has new features like changeable contact
points and an improvement in stimulation levels. These new units give
amateur trainers and professionals alike more control with the same
simplicity as before.”

The new collars feature two sets of removable contact points – either
standard length, or a longer version for long haired or thick coated
dogs. The stimulation pattern has also been adjusted to better match the
temperament of a wider range of dogs, and it’s now easier than ever to
quickly adjust corrections from the handheld, as well as train up to
three dogs.

The Delta XC is a sleek, ergonomic, and simple-to-use electronic
training system for dog owners who want to teach their canine companion
new commands, or refocus them away from unwanted behaviors. Functioning
as a “virtual leash,” the Delta XC gives dog owners a wide range of
customizable correction settings, including tone, vibration, and 18
levels of momentary and continuous stimulation for up to three dogs at
up to half a mile away (additional dog devices sold separately).

The Delta Sport XC adds a BarkLimiter mode to help put an end to
nuisance barking, which has been improved to allow the user to train
with the system while the BarkLimiter mode is currently on, and choose
from either a fixed level or autorise stimulation to keep barking to a
minimum. Range is three-quarters of a mile, and includes five training
configurations (instead of three in the Delta XC).

The Delta Upland XC has all the features of the Delta Sport XC, also
incorporates the industry-leading Tri-Tronics™ Upland G3 Beeper – a
convenient and economical way to keep tabs on dogs remotely, whether
they’re in thick cover or rolling terrain. The Delta Upland XC also has
36 levels of momentary stimulation, in addition to 18 levels of
continuous correction as well as tone and vibration.

The lightweight and compact Delta XC family handheld and collar unit are
waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – and the
transmitter floats. Both the handheld and collar unit come with
rechargeable batteries.

The Delta XC series will be available in the second quarter of 2015.

The Delta XC dog training system is the latest innovation in Garmin’s
growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies to
enhance users’ outdoor experiences and their relationships with their
canine companions. Whether it’s handhelds, wearables, action cameras, or
dog training systems, Garmin devices are essential tools for outdoor
