Our Most Responsive Autopilot System on the Water
- Solid-state 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS)
- Minimises heading error, course deviation, rudder movement and power consumption while providing a comfortable ride
- Minimal commissioning and calibration
- Patented Shadow Drive™ technology keeps you in control even when autopilot is engaged
The GHP Reactor for steer-by-wire provides robust autopilot capabilities for SeaStar® Optimus™ systems, Yanmar® Marine ZT 370 stern drive electronic power steering systems and ZF® 2800 Pod drives.
Garmin brings an advanced marine technology once only available to commercial boats to the boating public in a complete package designed in conjunction with SeaStar, Yanmar and ZF, the GHP™ Reactor works seamlessly with their systems.The GHP Reactor autopilot series is simply the most responsive autopilot system we have ever offered.
Solid-state 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System
With its advanced solid-state 9-axis AHRS, you are able to mount the GHP Reactor nearly anywhere, in any orientation. In addition, this new system greatly minimises heading error, course deviation, rudder movement and power consumption while providing a more comfortable ride for all onboard.
Reacts to Sea Conditions
This amazing autopilot actually reacts to the sea to hold your course. Even when the boat is pitching and rolling in rough water, you can remain confident that the GHP Reactor autopilot will keep you on your desired course.
Minimal Commissioning and Calibration
All autopilots require commissioning and calibration — all of them. We know you just want to get on the water, so we made this process as fast and easy as possible. That’s the power of simple.
Full Integration with Garmin Chartplotters
Combined with a compatible Garmin networked chartplotter, you can have full control of the GHP Reactor from wherever you are on the boat. In addition to holding its course in virtually all weather and wind conditions, the system can smoothly perform a variety of pre-programmed trolling and search procedures. Plus, with a compatible Garmin networked chartplotter and BlueChart® g2 Vision® charts (sold separately), you gain optional features like Auto Guidance, which automatically steers GPS paths.
Stay in Control with Shadow Drive Technology
The GHP Reactor features patented Shadow Drive technology. This gives you the security of knowing you maintain control even when the autopilot is engaged. The Shadow Drive system automatically disengages the autopilot if the helm is turned, giving you the freedom to maneuver the boat. The autopilot automatically re-engages when you hold a steady course.
Connect to Networked Devices
The GHP Reactor autopilot is operated using up to 3 GHC™ helm control units. The GHC communicates with the autopilot system via your NMEA 2000® network, so autopilot-heading data can be shared easily with other devices. This enables MARPA and chart overlay when connected to a Garmin chartplotter. An optional handheld wireless remote control is also available; however, for the highest level of convenience, control the GHC using quatix™, the world’s first marine GPS navigation watch featuring ANT+® wireless technology.
