Garmin’s Outdoor GPS 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.

With more than 1.2 million km of roads, including motorways, national and regional thoroughfares and local roads and over 378,300 points of interest allowing you to find restaurants, petrol/gasoline stations, lodging, attractions, railways and more.

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.
