OLATHE, Kan., August 10, 2005 - Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), today announced that Mopar will begin offering the Trail Guide™ - a new and highly versatile Garmin-built GPS navigation system designed for the Jeep Wrangler. The device was unveiled at Camp Jeep, an international gathering of Jeep enthusiasts held in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

"The Trail Guide is the ideal navigation device for Wrangler owners," said Gary Kelley, Garmin's director of marketing. "Whether traveling the highways, negotiating the byways, or hiking on foot, the Trail Guide is every bit as versatile as the Wrangler itself."

The Trail Guide is mounted atop the Wrangler's dashboard in a sleek custom cradle that provides power and audible voice prompts through dedicated speakers that are easy to hear even while traveling with the top down. For on-foot adventures, the user simply snaps the unit out of the cradle for handheld GPS navigation.

Loaded with detailed, street-level maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, the Trail Guide contains nearly six million points of interest - including gas stations, lodging, restaurants, attractions, and Jeep dealers and service facilities. The Trail Guide boasts other premium automotive navigation capabilities - like a high-resolution color TFT display, automatic route calculation, turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions, and automatic route recalculation - at a price that is significantly less than most built-in navigation systems.

Garmin Trail Guide mounted on Jeep Wrangler TJ DashJeep owners can take the Trail Guide with them when hiking, biking, camping, or fishing. The unit is completely waterproof and has an internal lithium-ion battery providing up to 20 hours of use outside the cradle. The unique antenna folds flush with the unit when not in use for added portability. The unit also accepts Garmin's MapSource® U.S. Topo data for off-road adventures.

"Jeep Wrangler owners are known for their adventuresome, go-anywhere, do-anything spirit - and the Trail Guide is the perfect navigator to help them get there and back," said Paul Kelly, director of Mopar's Accessory Parts Portfolio. "And compared to many competitive navigation systems, the Trail Guide offers unique vehicle integration and is an affordable full-featured option."

Jeep dealers can install the Trail Guide in any 1997 to 2006 model year Wrangler or Unlimited model. The Trail Guide is expected to be available in September 2005. See your Jeep dealer for pricing.

The new Garmin Trail Guide uses the Garmin Quest as its GPS unit. I was wondering if anyone knows if or where I can purchase just the docking mount. I already have a Quest and would like to do away with the not so good suction cup mounting system it currently has.
Thank you .

Waaaay over priced for what you get...as is anything accessory-wise from the Jeep dealer! Very Happy
