Garmin brings an advanced marine technology once only available to commercial boats to the boating public in a complete package designed for powerboats and sailboats. The Reactor 40 mechanical/retrofit/solenoid autopilot corepack is ideal for sailboats and powerboats with direct or cable-actuated steering systems. This Reactor 40 below-deck autopilot system gives captains that "extra set of hands" they need so you can safely attend to your sails, lines, winches, and radios without worry. With its solid-state 9-axis AHRS, Reactor 40 mounts anywhere, in any orientation, and requires minimal commissioning.

Solid-State 9-Axis Attitude Heading Reference System
With its advanced solid-state, 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS), you are able to mount the Reactor 40 nearly anywhere, in any orientation. In addition, this system greatly minimizes heading error, course deviation, rudder movement, and power consumption, while providing a more comfortable ride for all onboard.

Reacts to Conditions
This amazing autopilot actually reacts to the sea to hold your course. Even when the boat is pitching and rolling in rough water, you can remain confident that the Reactor 40 autopilot will keep you on your desired course.

Minimal Commissioning And Calibration
All autopilots require commissioning and calibration - all of them. However, Garmin took what is normally a 20 minute process and reduced it to as little as 5 minutes. That's the power of simple.

Full Integration with Garmin Chartplotters
You have full control of the Reactor 40 from your chartplotter display. Combined with a compatible Garmin networked chartplotter and BlueChart g2 Vision charts, you can enjoy optional features like Auto Guidance, which automatically steers GPS paths.

Stay in Control with Shadow Drive Technology
The Reactor 40 with SmartPump features patented Shadow Drive technology. This 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.

Connect to Networked Devices
The Reactor 40 autopilot 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. This enables MARPA and chart overlay when connected to a Garmin chartplotter. An optional handheld wireless remote control is also available. However, for the highest level of convenience, control GHC using a compatible quatix 3 or quatix 5 marine multisport smartwatch.

Add Even More Peace of Mind
Add an optional GRF 10 rudder feedback sensor and you can further enhance the performance of your Reactor 40 autopilot with SmartPump.
