Garmin Marine

It should come as no surprise that Garmin is one of the top manufacturers of marine navigation products. The company’s dedication to developing quality products that are easy to use, come equipped with plenty of handy features, and sized to meet your exact needs while on the water is clear in their current product line. From fish finders to GPS systems and plenty of other gadgets in between, you simply cannot go wrong with a Garmin.

Let’s take a look at some of Garmin’s current marine product offerings.

Autopilots

With three current product options on the market today, Garmin Autopilot units allow mariners to have the certainty and safety they desire while heading out on the water, yet the freedom to enjoy their time away from the controls.

The GHP 10 system is a popular option that provides easy interfacing and data sharing with other devices. This autopilot system also offers a handy controller and remote that allows control from many different areas on the boat. The remote is also waterproof and floats if it is ever dropped into the water. It comes equipped with a bright back lit LCD screen and lighted keys for ease of use even in dim conditions. The system also comes with Shadow Drive technology that allows mariners to remain in control completely, even when the autopilot is engaged. This feature causes autopilot to disengage when the helm is turned, and then re-engage when the vessel is back to a steady course.

Chartplotters

With features such as ultra bright large readout screens, preloaded maps, backlit keypads, seamless integration with various other Garmin electronics, high speed processors, BlueChart g2 vision cards, and compact easy to handle sizes, Garmin’s chartplotters have become a must have for any mariner. Add to these specs the options for handheld devices, waterproof options, chartplotters that float if dropped into water, and safety features such as MOB (Man Over Board) buttons for emergencies, and you have devices that are must haves on any vessel.

Communications & AIS

No vessel should be without some form of marine radio communication system. Garmin is proud to offer some of the best communication products around with plenty of options for almost any size boat. With features such as the ability to monitor all AIS stations at one time, and the option to equip the boat with multiple communication stations, you will never have to worry about being out of range while on the water.
