The Quatix from Garmin — a GPS watch designed for anglers — provides tidal information, COG, SOG, and VMG, and alerts for speed and anchor drag. Equipped with altimeter, barometer and compass sensors, it provides real-time environmental readouts. A three-axis electronic compass displays bearing.
With an integrated MOB feature, the watch automatically triggers a MOB alarm on Garmin plotters, and provides a bearing back to the victim that is linkable to a Garmin autopilot to navigate back to the victim’s position. Quatix connects wirelessly to both BlueChart Mobile and HomePort, allowing transfer of waypoints, routes and tracks. Quatix provides the ability to steer the boat via a Garmin autopilot system, connecting wirelessly to the GHC-10 in the helm, and provides autopilot control.
