Auto-guided Navigation for Yanmar, SeaStar Steering (Teleflex) and ZF Users: For Yanmar® Electric Power Steering for the JC10 Joystick system, SeaStar Steering Optimus™ systems and ZF® 2800 Pod Drive steering systems. Patented Shadow Drive™ technology keeps you in control even when relying upon autopilot. Controlled using a GHC™ 20 helm control unit and is compatible with the GHC remote and quatix™ watch. Up to three GHC controllers can be interfaced with a single GHP 10.

Experience Advanced Autopilot Technology: With a GHP 20 for steer-by-wire aboard your boat, you no longer need to be tied to your helm. In addition to holding its course in virtually all weather and wind conditions, the system can perform a variety of pre-programmed trolling and search procedures. Plus, with a compatible Garmin network chartplotter and BlueChart® g2 Vision® charts, you gain optional features like Auto Guidance, which automatically steers GPS routes.

Stay in Control with Shadow Drive™ Technology: The GHP 20 steer-by-wire’s patented Shadow Drive technology 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.

Integrate with compatible Yanmar Marine, SeaStar Steering and ZF Steering Systems: On vessels with compatible Yanmar, SeaStar Steering and ZF steer-by-wire systems, the GHP 20 steer-by-wire autopilot provides unmatched autopilot performance. It works seamlessly with joystick steering/shift/throttle control systems to negotiate the boat forward, backwards, diagonally, sideways or on its axis. Dynamic gain adjustments based on tachometer information means the GHP 20 steer-by-wire offers optimal performance at all speeds.

Connect to Networked Devices: The GHP 20 for steer-by-wire is operated using up to three GHC™ 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.
