OLATHE, Kan./June 21, 2011 — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, and Jeppesen, a leading provider of aeronautical charting and navigation services, are pleased to announce PilotPak™, a new
bundle pricing program for databases on select Garmin panel mount avionics. PilotPak provides a more affordable single aircraft pricing structure and simplifies the database purchase process by offering a one-stop shop experience.
“Garmin and Jeppesen are continuing to make it easier and more affordable for pilots to keep their aviation databases up-to-date,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing. “We know that pilots depend on these databases for safety and convenience,
and we’re pleased to work together to offer customers a single and comprehensive purchase and support solution.”
PilotPak provides all the databases within the selected package to be used with any combination of GTN™, G600, G500, G500H and G3X installed in one aircraft, all for a single annual price. Each bundle option includes Garmin’s popular SafeTaxi®, Obstacle,
Terrain and Airport Directory, and customers are able to choose between bundle options that include Jeppesen NavData, Jeppesen JeppView and/or Garmin FliteCharts®.
With a PilotPak Standard Americas subscription, a pilot can enjoy 20 percent savings on databases for a single GTN or 60 percent savings with the inclusion of a G500 when compared to purchasing annual subscriptions to each database individually. When
Garmin’s FliteCharts are included, the savings on databases for a single GTN 750 amount to over 30 percent and when combined with a G500, the customer saves over 70 percent. Whether a pilot has one or more of the qualified avionics, they pay a single, affordable
price for the selected package.
The Lite, Standard and Standard with Garmin FliteCharts PilotPak options are available from www.flygarmin.com. The Standard and Standard with Jeppesen JeppView options are available at www.jeppesen.com/gtn.
