Garmin announces new GHC 50 autopilot control unit

A Garmin announced the new autopilot control unit GH 50, a brilliant 5-inch touchscreen designed for easy control and readability of your GHP Reactor autopilots. With a premium design and edge-to-edge glass display, the GHC 50 seamlessly integrates with Garmin’s Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) to create a sleek and impressive look for any cockpit.

“We are excited to further enhance the Reactor series of autopilots with a modern display that facilitates simple, hassle-free navigation,” said Salvador Alcover, general manager of Garmin Iberia. “Designed for powerboats and sailboats, the GHC 50 complements any Garmin dashboard with a larger, brighter, and easier-to-read display day or night.” adds Alcover.

One-touch boat control

With a bright, anti-glare 5-inch WVGA touchscreen, the GHC 50 makes autopilot setup and control simple and hassle-free. Ships will benefit from an interactive and easy-to-use interface that allows you to control the course of the ship with just a tap. The GHC 50 communicates with any Garmin Reactor autopilot system via NMEA 2000, so course data can be easily shared with other devices. And for added convenience, users can even control the GHC 50 wirelessly using quatix smartwatches, the Garmin remote or the GRID 20 remote.

New Reactor Autopilot Packs

The GHC 50 is compatible with all Reactor GHP autopilots, including the award-winning Reactor 40 aft autopilot. The Reactor series utilizes AHRS (Solid-state Attitude Heading Reference System) technology for superior heading hold performance, even in turbulent waters, and offers flexible installation options requiring minimal commissioning and calibration. New autopilot packs and Reactor corepacks with the included GHC 50 will be available for all builds previously sold with the GHC 20.

Designed inside for the outside, Garmin products have revolutionized the lives of runners, cyclists, swimmers and athletes of all levels and abilities. Committed to developing technology that helps people stay active and perform better, Garmin believes that every day is an opportunity to innovate and a challenge to overcome yesterday. For the seventh consecutive year, Garmin was recently named Manufacturer of the Year by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA).
