Garmin® expands cost-effective navigation databases to include South America


Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today
announced the addition of new, cost-effective Garmin Navigation Database
information for South America. This database will soon be available in
the newly expanded Americas OnePak, which offers coverage in North,
Central and South America and provides database updates across all
Garmin avionics and a portable in a single aircraft.

"Given the tremendous success of the Garmin Navigation Database, we're
excited to expand coverage even further to South America," said Carl
Wolf, vice president of aviation marketing and sales. "This expanded
coverage offers pilots a cost-effective alternative that can be packaged
with other databases to provide pilots with all of the information they
need in a single aircraft for an entire year – at one low price."

South American navigation data

New to South America, the Garmin Navigation Database provides a trusted
and convenient path to incorporate the latest database information
within select Garmin avionics. Data such as instrument procedures,
frequencies and airport data are included in this database. Coverage of
the new Garmin Navigation Database in South America starts at $149 USD
for a single update and $399 USD for an annual subscription for the GTN™
650/750 touchscreen series or GNS™ 430W/530W navigators.

OnePak annual database updates

Pilots operating across the Americas are offered significant savings
with OnePak annual database subscriptions, which combines the Garmin
Navigation Database and many other Garmin databases (where available) to
provide additional data options that suit their needs. For one annual
price, databases within OnePak subscriptions can be downloaded to
multiple Garmin avionics and one qualifying portable in a single
aircraft. The Americas OnePak that incorporates the new South America
data is available on compatible products for $724 USD, which includes
the Garmin Navigation Database, Terrain and Basemap and can also include
the Airport Directory, IFR enroute charts, VFR sectional charts,
Obstacles and SafeTaxi®. The purchase of a OnePak
subscription also provides existing Garmin Pilot™ subscribers with an
upgrade to Garmin Pilot IFR Premium that includes coverage in South
