Garmin announces the GHP™ 10V Marine Autopilot

Garmin International is pleased to announce the GHP 10V Marine Autopilot System certified by Volvo Penta for use with all Inboard Performance Systems (IPS) and Sterndrive Joystick systems.  The GHP 10V Autopilot System is approved for use with boats that have an integrated Volvo Penta IPS steering and propulsion system. It will feature Garmin’s proven and innovative Shadow Drive™ technology – a patented capability that automatically disengages the autopilot if the helm is turned, allowing for quick and safe manual maneuvers without manually disengaging the autopilot.

The autopilot will automatically re-engage once a steady course is re-established. Boaters will cruise comfortably with Garmin’s autopilot that incorporates a rock-solid gyro-stabilized heading sensor for maximum performance and reliability in rough seas.


In addition, boaters will experience confidence and security from the GHC™ 10 Autopilot Control Unit that is designed to help boaters configure and control the autopilot. With an easy-to-read 3.5” color display, three soft keys, and a dedicated “standby” button, boaters will benefit from the simple, intuitive interface, and can control the heading of the boat with the press of a key. Three GHC 10 controllers can be interfaced with a single GHP 10V, allowing autopilot functionality at a remote location on the boat.
