Pertains To GPSMAP 496 and GPSMAP 696
Garmin is announcing a new bundle pricing program for the GPSMAP
495/496 and GPSMAP 695/696. These new bundled database options will
save customers up to 50 percent annually on database updates.
“The GPSMAP 296 was our first portable GPS to have
multiple databases that could be updated. It was introduced in 2004
and was a breakthrough product at the time because it had terrain
and obstacle data,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice
president of marketing.
“As technology has improved, we’ve been able to
offer customers additional information like FliteCharts, SafeTaxi
and the AOPA Directory. We recognize that many customers rely on
these databases for safety of flight and convenience, and the new
bundled pricing packages make it easier for budget savvy pilots to
keep all databases up to date.”
Garmin anticipates adding other product database bundles in the
future. The GPSMAP 695/696 and 495/496 bundled database packages
will be available beginning April 13-18, 2010.
