Garmin’s products or tools are suited to developing economies where infrastructure requirements are extensive and mapping out of new boundaries, roads, waypoints are key to the countries expansion. Sustainable farming and the information required to plot out a field, calculate the area for planting seedlings or determining the land gradient of your farm to select the most suitable pump are just some key uses of our products.

Garmin navigation devices come preloaded with full map coverage for Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda and have free map updates for the lifetime of the unit. Over 54,000 Points of Interest allow you to find petrol stations, hotels, restaurants, and shopping centres.

Marine Echo range of fish finders make use of GPS and sonar technology to map and view fish under water, so fishermen can see where the fish are, and mark the exact waypoint so they can keep record of their fishing spots.

Garmin’s range of Fitness watches track time, speed, distance, calories, cadence and even heart rate, perfect for runners, cyclists and gym goers. Another exciting sector is the health and wellness market where Garmin VivoFit wellness band tracks your steps and sleeping patters encouraging you to stay active.
