Garmin Reactor 40 With GHC 20 Autopilot Features


Solid-state 9-axis AHRS

With its advanced solid-state 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS), you can mount Reactor 40 nearly anywhere, in any orientation. This new system also helps minimise  rudder movement, heading error, course deviation and power consumption.

Reacts to Conditions

The Reactor 40 autopilot actually reacts to the sea to hold your course even when the boat is pitching and rolling.

Shadow Drive Technology

The Reactor 40 autopilot features patented Shadow Drive technology. The Shadow Drive system automatically disengages the autopilot if the helm is turned, giving you the freedom to manoeuver the boat. The autopilot automatically re-engages when you hold a steady course.

Full Integration with Garmin Chartplotters

Combined with a compatible Garmin networked chartplotter, you can have full control of Reactor 40 from wherever you are on the boat. In addition to holding its course in virtually all weather and wind conditions, the system can smoothly perform a variety of pre-programmed trolling and search procedures. 

Connect to Networked Devices

Reactor 40 is operated using up to 3 GHC™ helm control units. GHC communicates with the autopilot system via your NMEA 2000® network, so autopilot heading data can be shared easily with other devices. An optional handheld wireless remote control is available, or you can control your GHC using a compatible Garmin Quatix smartwatch.
