Garmin GRF 10 Rudder Feedback Sensor

The GRF 10 can be paired with the GHP 12 autopilot system to provide rudder position feedback and to detect and avoid rudder stops while sailing or boating. It uses a magnetic sensor to relay position information, eliminating friction that causes other types of sensors to wear out. The arm of the GRF 10 is connected to the rudder of the boat and relays position information through the sensor to the mariner so they know where the rudder is – giving them an added peace of mind when starting from a stopped position, docking, launching or moving at slow speeds. This product can be an excellent complement to your autopilot system, therefore improving your boat’s navigation ability.
