Yacht Controller “OneHelm” Panel Now Integrated To Display On Garmin MFDs

Published: Monday, January 7, 2019

Yacht Controller, well known for providing “innovative technology for the marine industry”, recently announced the integration of the Yacht Controller information and control panel on compatible Garmin multifunction displays (MFDs) with OneHelm™ functionality. This integration allows Yacht Controller and Garmin users to take advantage of the Garmin display for accessing the Yacht Controller panel during their maneuvers. This allows for a vivid color visual and an easy method to start and see the system without the need for another dedicated Yacht Controller screen on the boat.

Gerald Berton, President of Yacht Controller, stated, “This strategic alliance provides the opportunity for Yacht Controller and Garmin customers to take advantage of combining both companies’ advanced technologies within the Garmin screen, improving their boating pleasure, safety, and experience.”

Michael Range from Garmin said, “Working together with a proven advanced technology brand such as Yacht Controller, and incorporating them into the Garmin OneHelm solution, will provide customers the opportunity to easily see and control multiple functions via Garmin’s intuitive high- resolution HD touchscreen displays – and its high-performance processor – providing a superior user experience.”
