Garmin announce latest autopilot in Reactor range


GARMIN claims the newest addition to its GHP autopilot series, the GHP Compact Reactor Hydraulic Autopilot is ideal for outboard-powered boats up to around 9m in length.

The GHP Compact Reactor is based on the same advanced solid-state 9-axis AHRS technology as other autopilots in Garmin’s award-winning Reactor series. With three different configurations available, all using a 1L pump, it’s a flexible solution that allows boaters to choose the features they need and how much they want to spend.

The Compact Reactor Starter Pack includes the core autopilot components needed to install and use alongside a compatible chartplotter. Fully integrated with compatible Garmin electronics, the Compact Reactor series can be controlled directly from the chartplotter. The autopilot can also be engaged to follow Garmin’s Auto Guidance technology (when used with BlueChart g2 Vision charts), which eliminates the hassle of entering different waypoints to create a route to your destination. Simply move the cursor on the map to where you want to go and the chartplotter will automatically plan the route from your vessel’s current location – avoiding shallow water and other charted obstructions – and then engage the autopilot.

RRP from AU$1799.
