GPS and (these days) wearable tech company Garmin has turned 25. Yup, the company has been making sat navs for a quarter of a century so far. In celebration, they’re offering a trade-in offer to South African buyers who are looking to buy or upgraded their GPS units at retailers – no, they’re not giving away anything.
Instead, Garmin is offering customers a R300 trade-in value on a nüvi 55LM. The idea is that you can bring an old GPS – any old GPS, whether it’s working or not – to a participating retailer (the list of which includes Makro, Game, Dion Wired, Outdoor Warehouse and other) and Garmin will arrange R300 off the purchase of a nüvi 55LM for you.
Garmin’s trade-in offer is going to be valid until 31 July this year so if you’re looking for a new GPS, or just looking to dispose of an old one, now would be the time to do that. Of course, terms and conditions apply.
Garmin’s Sub-Saharan Africa CEO Walter Mech said in a statement “To this day Garmin is still driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders, which has enabled us to constantly push new boundaries and enter new markets. Our strategy of vertical integration has enabled us to foster a culture of innovation, giving us full control over the entire development process of a product, from idea to market. Garmin today is more diversified than ever with unique product offerings that are sought after for their compelling design, superior quality, and best value.”
