MIAMI — Garmin International Inc. launched OneHelm, an integrated system designed for third-party companies, at the Progressive Miami International Boat Show, which runs through Monday on Virginia Key.

The OneHelm system allows users to control onboard boat systems including digital switching, lighting and stabilization via a multifunction display that eliminates the need for multiple control displays and devices.

“The MFD is the command center of a boat helm; it’s the most visible display and the most utilized,” said Garmin global consumer sales vice president Dan Bartel in a statement. “With that in mind, OneHelm simplifies control and customization of the boat's most crucial systems to one master source – the Garmin MFD. We’re fortunate to work with so many industry brands to incorporate their systems and technologies into OneHelm, and look forward to adding more soon.”

Technologies from companies including Böning, CZone, Lumishore, OctoPlex, Seakeeper and Shadow-Caster have been integrated into OneHelm.
