Garmin Donation to SANParks Honorary Rangers

Unread postby Phokojwe » Mon Feb 03, 2014 11:55 am

Garmin recently joined efforts with the SANParks Honorary Rangers to support conservation in our national parks.

Garmin is the world's leading mobile navigation technology company and a global manufacturer of in-car GPS satellite navigation, portable navigation devices, handheld GPS units, and GPS products for the auto, mobile, marine, aviation, outdoor and fitness sectors.

Garmin donated 15 Dakota 20 GPS units to the Virtual Region of the SANParks Honorary Rangers. The Virtual Region, which is the Honorary Rangers unit functioning on the Internet, will distribute the GPS units to rangers working in parks across the country.

These GPS units are rugged and designed for outdoor use and will be utilised to support counter poaching and other conservation efforts in the parks.
