Garmin® Introduces The GHP™ 20 Marine Autopilot With SmartPump

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced its new GHP 20 Autopilot with SmartPump – a marine autopilot solution for boats with hydraulic steering. Offering one pump size that handles most boat sizes and applications, the GHP 20 Autopilot with SmartPump is a tremendous advancement in hydraulic steering systems. The GHP 20 with SmartPump, is being announced in conjunction with the Southampton Boat Show, September 14-23, 2012.

“Installing dealers will benefit greatly from the GHP 20 Autopilot with SmartPump, as it effectively puts an end to guessing which pump size will work for a particular boat,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “And end users will enjoy how 'smart' the GHP 20 is – it can hold course for you in virtually all weather and wind conditions.”

Unique to the marine industry, this premium autopilot features one SmartPump that works for most boats, and brings hydraulic steering compatibility to the GHP 20 series of autopilots. The GHP 20 with SmartPump automatically adjusts the maximum flow rate for a particular boat. Because the GHP 20 with SmartPump uses a brushless motor, there is no direct electrical connection between the drive circuit and the rotor. This provides increased reliability, longer pump life, reduced power consumption, quiet operation, a smaller footprint, improved thermal performance and higher efficiency. For the ultimate in reliability, SmartPump is engineered from corrosion-resistant components including black dye on aluminum parts and nickel-plating on all steel parts.

Thanks to Intelligent Rudder Rate Technology (IRRT), the GHP 20 Autopilot with SmartPump slows the rudder rate when the vessel is at high speeds and speeds up rudder rate when the vessel is at lower speeds. This allows for optimal performance and safety in all conditions. Additionally, the brushless motor drive eliminates the risk of rudder “hard over” due to hardware or software failures.
