Introducing the Garmin® eTrex® Touch 25, 35 and 35t Handhelds—the first-ever eTrex units equipped with touchscreen displays

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the eTrex Touch
25, 35 and 35t, adding new touchscreen models to the popular line of
outdoor handhelds. The eTrex Touch series has a completely updated user
interface, improving the ease-of-use of the device, as well as a 2.6”
capacitive touchscreen display, the largest display that’s ever been put
on an eTrex device. The eTrex Touch series also features new activity
profiles for easy-to-use navigation for multiple activities and an
enhanced track manager to easily start and stop recording. Rugged and
dependable, the new eTrex Touch series boasts a high-sensitivity,
WAAS-enabled GPS receiver with GLONASS support, as well as a worldwide
shaded relief basemap, with preloaded TOPO U.S. 100K on the 35t.
Additionally, the eTrex Touch 25, 35 and 35t are compatible with an
array of mounts that are extremely easy to use on bicycles, boats, ATVs
or in the car. No matter the activity, the eTrex Touch series is ready
for an adventure.

“We are thrilled to add a set of touchscreen units to the eTrex lineup,”
said Dan Bartel Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “With updates
like the pinch-and-zoom touchscreen and new activity profiles, we’re
excited to raise the bar of what’s available to consumers in the eTrex

Featuring a 2.6” sunlight-readable, capacitive touchscreen display, the
eTrex Touch 25, 35 and 35t offer a long-lasting 16-hour battery life,
and a rugged ergonomic design that’s meant to withstand the elements 1.
Boasting a built-in high-sensitivity GPS receiver with GLONASS support
and HotFix® satellite prediction, the eTrex Touch series is able to
locate users’ position quickly and precisely, even in heavy cover and
deep canyons. All units in the eTrex Touch series have a built-in 3-axis
tilt-compensated electronic compass, which gives directional information
even when standing still. The eTrex 35 and 35t also have a barometric
altimeter to get more accurate altitude, elevation and climb
information, as well as indications of pending weather changes.

The eTrex Touch series integrates a variety of new activity profiles.
The device remembers how each profile is set up to each activity, and
will set it up for users the same way every time, making it comfortable,
quick and intuitive to use the same device for entirely different
purposes. No matter if users are out rock climbing, hiking, hunting,
cycling, geocaching or fishing, with an eTrex Touch, switching between
activities is easier than ever, even if they’re done all in one

The eTrex Touch series comes preloaded with a worldwide shaded relief
basemap, 4GB of internal memory on the 25 and 35 models and 8GB of
internal memory on the 35t. The eTrex 35t also comes preloaded with TOPO
U.S. 100K. With the built-in microSD card slot, users can install even
more maps, like HuntView™
to see public and private land data while hunting, BirdsEye
Satellite Imagery
or TOPO U.S. 24K. Additionally, all models come
preloaded with 250,000 geocaches from,
so right out of the box, users can start their geocaching adventure
virtually anywhere in the world.

The eTrex 35 and 35t incorporate wireless ANT +™ connectivity to
accessory sensors like heart rate monitors, the Tempe™
temperature sensor, Chirp™
geocaching beacon, or the cycling
speed sensors and cadence sensors
. The eTrex 35 and 35t can also act
as a wireless remote control for the VIRB®
line of action cameras. The eTrex 35 and 35t can connect via Bluetooth
to compatible smartphones 2 to receive smart notifications
and stay connected out on the trail, but keep their phone safely packed
away from the elements. Additionally, these units are compatible with
the the Garmin Connect mobile app, for features such as
LiveTrack. With LiveTrack, users can pair their device with the app, and
invite friends and family to follow their activity in real time. This
provides peace of mind, especially if users are alone.
