Garmin International, Inc. Key Developments

Garmin International to Open New Brick-And-Mortar Stores in Miami

Garmin International Inc. announced that it will open new brick-and-mortar stores in the greater Miami area. These Garmin showcases will offer the company's most popular products, combined with renowned customer service and in-depth, hands-on product demonstrations. Garmin will open a 2,600 square-foot Garmin store in Miami, located at the Lincoln Road Mall. Located at 511-513 Lincoln Road, this space will allow guests to receive concierge-like customer service while experiencing dozens of different products in the Garmin lineup including wellness, running, cycling, golfing, marine, automotive, aviation, and outdoor recreation devices. Lincoln Road is a popular pedestrian mall that features an array of high-end brands, galleries, and restaurants. Also in the greater Miami area, Garmin will open a smaller kiosk-format showcase in the upscale Aventura Mall. Situated between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Aventura is home to many luxury brands and is the third larger mall in the United States.

Garmin International Inc. Introduces T 5 Mini and Tt™ 15 Mini GPS Tracking Collars for Smaller Breed Dogs

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. announced the addition of the T 5 mini and TT 15 mini to its range of Astro® and Alpha® GPS dog tracking and training systems. The T 5/TT 15 mini are designed to fit smaller breed dogs. The T 5/TT 15 mini are designed to fit neck circumferences as small as 9.5 inches. And the dog device has been miniaturized to decrease the load on the dog, with a reduction in weight from 9.3 ounces (T 5) to 7 ounces (T 5 mini) and from 10 ounces (TT 15) to 7.5 ounces (TT 15 mini). The collar strap width has also been reduced to ¾ inch. Despite their smaller size, the units are capable of a full day (approximately 16 hours) of use at a 2.5 second update rate. Range of the new T 5/TT 15 mini is four miles and the units support rescue mode, which switches the dog devices to a two minute update rate when the battery is below a 25% charge. A new power-saving feature also allows the user to put the collar in non-tracking 'sleep mode,' and resume tracking at a later time. Like their larger cousins, the T 5 mini and TT 15 mini support the following features: High-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite support, for faster acquisition and a more reliable connection to positioning satellites; Water rated to 1 ATM (withstands pressures equivalent to a depth of 10 meters of water); User selectable LED beacon for night use (visible up to 100 yards). The T 5 mini is a tracking-only dog device, while the TT 15 mini adds 18 levels of continuous or momentary stimulation, tone, and vibration. Both the T 5/TT 15 mini are compatible with the Alpha 100 or the Astro 320 handhelds. Tracking, but no stimulation, is possible when pairing the Astro 320 with the TT 15 mini.

Garmin International, Inc. Introduces New, All-Digital Bluetooth GMA 350c Audio Panel

Garmin International, Inc. announced an all-digital series of Bluetooth enabled audio panels, the GMA 350c, GMA 35c and GMA 350Hc. Designed for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, the GMA 350c series incorporates Bluetooth technology for wireless access to music, phone, Garmin Pilot™ alerts and more. This adds to an impressive list of features, including industry-first Telligence Voice Command technology and 3D Audio processing, as well as enhanced auto squelch capability and more. These features decrease heads-down time and increase overall situational awareness in the cockpit. The all-digital GMA 350c Bluetooth audio panel incorporates patented features and superior voice control to provide pilots with an exclusive feature set unmatched by any other audio panels on the market. Bluetooth technology provides more functionality in the cockpit, giving pilots the option to wirelessly connect a smartphone or tablet to the GMA 350c to easily make phone calls or stream audio entertainment. Additionally, the GMA 350c series can be paired with the Garmin Pilot app to transmit terrain, obstacle or traffic alerts while in-flight. Pilot-controlled audio distribution ensures the appropriate communications are dispersed to passengers and crew accordingly. Integration with VIRB XE, Garmin’s next generation HD action camera, brings a new level of capability to the GMA 350c series. Bluetooth Audio connectivity offered by the GMA 350c allows pilots to connect wirelessly to VIRB XE in place of a headset audio cable to conveniently overlay intercom audio and air traffic control communications while capturing rich, high definition video. Telligence Voice Command allows pilots to activate select audio panel functions by spoken commands. For example, when workload is the highest, ailots can switch from approach to tower frequency with ease by simply stating 'COMM one'. With stereo headsets, three-dimensional sound is simulated with 3D Audio, which mimics how pilots hear and process multiple audio sources. This technology differentiates the audio sources and their unique locations or seat position so they are easier to distinguish. For example, sound from COMM 1 will come from the left, whereas sound from COMM 2 will seem as though it’s coming from the right. Advanced auto squelch automatically adapts to the volume level within the cockpit. An internal microphone senses ambient noise and adjusts cockpit speaker volume level to ensure important audio transmissions are heard throughout all phases of flight. The GMA 350c analyzes cockpit noise levels and adjusts speaker volume accordingly to ensure alerts are quieter on the ground and louder in-flight. The GMA 350c series includes pilot, copilot and up to five passenger stereo intercom. It also supports three stereo music inputs, as well as dual COMM, NAV and AUX audio inputs. A built-in digital clearance recorder can record up to 2.5 minutes of selected COMM radio transmissions, so pilots can optionally play back clearances or unclear radio transmissions. Contributing to an easy and convenient upgrade path, the GMA 350c is pin-compatible with the GMA 340 and GMA 350. The GMA 350c is designed as a direct replacement for existing GMA audio panel installations and as a slide-in replacement for the GMA 350. In addition to enhanced Bluetooth capabilities, the GTN 750 series has tightly integrated audio compatibility with the GMA 35c remote audio processor. For use in helicopters, the GMA 350Hc has the same core features as the GMA 350c, adding three COMM support, night vision compatibility and more. The GMA 350c, GMA 35c and GMA 350Hc are expected to be available in third quarter of 2015 starting at $2,295.
