Garmin® Offers New Worldwide Weather Pricing And Position Reporting Service

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced new and simple worldwide weather pricing plans as well as a new position reporting service, both utilizing our global connectivity services. These services offer pilots seamless access to weather products around the world and supply position information to both owners and operators, ultimately increasing safety and situational awareness.

“The new, straightforward worldwide weather pricing plans offer owners and operators predictability of their month-to-month service charges and provides pilots confidence knowing they’ll have access to valuable weather information when they need it most,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of marketing and sales. “Customers told us they wanted a completely integrated position reporting service with the Garmin avionics they already have and we listened, delivering the capabilities they need for their operations in a completely integrated package.”

Customers may select from two worldwide weather plans based on their flying needs. For those with moderate flight activity, a package that offers a set number of weather requests for a single monthly price is available and for owners and operators flying more frequently, a larger package encompassing more weather requests, offers pilots an additional option. These plans also contain monthly fees as well as any airtime charges associated with the weather requests for an easy-to-understand price. All-inclusive plans start at $100 a month 1. Existing customers can continue to use their existing plan or rollover their account to either of the new, simplified plans at any time.

Position reporting services offer owners and operators information that may be important for business and personal purposes. Using their Garmin Flight Deck or avionics, pilots may choose how frequently they wish to send a position report, to be displayed by a provider such as FlightAware.com. For example, helicopter operators can schedule position information to be automatically sent to operations/ground crews during their missions. Position reporting can also assist fleet operators, flight schools, and others on the ground to better track and manage their aircraft.
