Customized GARMIN navigator for EWA

The Electricity & Water Authority (EWA) has a large fleet of vehicles serving all areas of Bahrain. Many of these vehicles are allocated for emergency and network maintenance activities, requiring EWA engineers and technicians to make onsite visits to the many electrical and water assets linked to the network throughout the kingdom. With thousands of assets distributed around the country, and with the ever-expanding network, finding and reaching a particular asset was often a challenge, especially for smaller assets (e.g. secondary sub-stations or pumping stations) in new areas. STS provided EWA with a customized navigator map containing all the EWA assets in an easy to use search tool built for GARMIN in-car PND. The driver/user enters the EWA asset name in the customized search tool, and the navigator does the rest, providing turn-by-turn voice guidance to the required destination, thus eliminating the guess work out of the way.
