The GHP 20 for Steer-by-Wire brings our leading-edge marine autopilot technology to vessels with select steer-by-wire control systems, including the Teleflex Marine Optimus 360 by SeaStar®.
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 a 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 Teleflex Optimus Systems
On Vessels with the Teleflex Optimus steering systems, the GHP 20 Steer-by-Wire autopilot provides unmatched autopilot performance. It works seamlessly with the Optimus 360’s revolutionary joystick steering/shift/throttle control system to negotiate the boat forward, backwards, diagonally, sideways or on its axis. Dynamic gain adjustments based on tachometer information provided by the Optimus system means the GHP 20 Steer-by-Wire offers optimal performance at all speeds.
Connect to Networked Devices
The GHP 20 for Viking is operated using up to 3 GHC™ 10 control units. The GHC 10 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.
