Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., announced that technologies from several leading marine brands have been integrated into OneHelm; its innovative HTML5 platform designed for third-party companies that simplifies the process of controlling onboard systems 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.
“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 to provide added convenience, control and security onboard. We welcome these new companies onboard and look forward to adding more soon.”
