Garmin® launches OneHelm, an integrated solution for controlling boat systems from a single display

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today
announced OneHelm™, an integrated solution designed for third-party
companies that brings the power and convenience of controlling onboard
boat systems like digital switching, lighting, stabilization and more,
to a Garmin multifunction display (MFD). This intuitive solution makes
the boating experience more automated and fluent at the helm, while also
eliminating the need for multiple control displays and devices.

“The MFD is the command center of a boat helm; it’s the most visible
display and the most utilized. With that in mind, OneHelm simplifies
control and customization of the boat’s most crucial systems to one
master source – the Garmin MFD,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president
of global consumer sales. “We’re fortunate to work with so many industry
brands to incorporate their systems and technologies into OneHelm, and
look forward to adding more soon.”

Since becoming available late last year, Garmin is excited to announce
that the systems and technologies of the following companies have been
integrated into OneHelm:

  • Böning Ship Automation specializes in ship monitoring and
    control systems aiming for seamless integration with the vessel’s
    navigation system. Böning develops and manufactures devices and
    systems for nearly any monitoring and control task on board, as well
    as the corresponding human interfaces, with user friendly
    visualization and custom control panels.
  • CZone’s digital switching simplifies operation by combining
    multiple circuits into predefined modes. CZone offers effortless
    monitoring oversight of key systems, and advanced control of
    individual circuits and functions. With a focus on partner
    integration, CZone delivers a leading solution for onboard automation.
  • Lumishore builds advanced high-performance underwater LED
    lighting solutions for boats of all types and sizes from RIBs to
    Superyachts. Their Lumi-Link™ plug-&-play MFD integration lets boaters
    take full control of their Lumishore EOS or SUPRA lighting system
    directly from their MFD with Lumishore’s full functionality.
  • The Carling Technologies® OctoPlex® system puts the user in
    complete control of all AC and DC loads. The system utilizes NMEA
    2000® to allow monitoring and control of common marine devices,
    including remote AC breaker management and auto AC load shedding with
    immediate alerting of electrical issues, while reducing installation
    complexity and weight.
  • The global leader in marine stabilization, Seakeeper’s
    innovative technology changes the boating experience by eliminating up
    to 95 percent of all boat roll, the rocking motion that causes
    seasickness, fatigue and anxiety. Seakeeper offers a growing selection
    of models for an expanding range of boat sizes.
  • Shadow-Caster LED Lighting manufactures marine lighting and
    control products, and offers a full line of sizes and features to
    cover small skiffs to large yachts. They specialize in lights that are
    exceptionally bright, robust and efficient. Shadow-Caster’s Shadow-NET
    protocol is paving the way for new standards of lighting control in
    marine applications.

OneHelm is currently available for the GPSMAP® 8400/8600 MFD series. To
