Goodbye button panels, so you control the whole boat from your plotter


Give or treat yourself to a subscription to Boats in Motion print + digital and for only 39 euros a year you get the magazine at home plus read it on your PC, smartphone and tablet. With a sea of advantages.

Onboard boat home automation is now a reality, and Garmin Marine is among the main drivers of this digital revolution. The dashboard has changed dramatically in recent accomplices, including increasing digitization. But what if we told you that you could take virtually all the buttons off your wheelhouse and make a fully integrated control system with Garmin that is tailored just for you? Well, this is already a reality, thanks to Empirbus.

Garmin home automation for every type of boater

How does it work? Watch the video with Motor Boats’ interview with Walter Ferraro, professional fisherman and ambassador for Garmin Marine and Yamaha Marine.

How Garmin’s Empirbus Works

Empirbus controls all utility services such as courtesy lights, bilge pumps, fresh water.

“Empirbus allows us to control everything without installation limitations. With Garmin you can study a variety of logics. For example I when I enter the boat at night and give power Empirbus automatically turns on the service lights. Functions can be designed such as the bilge pump turning on by itself if it finds water.”

“The design and installation is done directly by Garmin, and all we have to do is manage the interface. I must say that it is very easy to use, there is not so much to study. There are then graphics that let us know what we operate to help us understand it better.”

Every yachtsman can “make” the perfect plotter for him

“Yes, there are no particular limitations with this instrumentation. Once you know your needs, you can really have instrumentation that meets our needs to the fullest.”
