This Garmin GRID (Garmin Remote Input Device) creates a new level of ability to what a remote input device can achieve. It really does allow seamless navigation as you control one or more of Garmin’s Series 8000 display units. It is easy to install and will make you feel as if you’re inputting information straight onto the touch screen of your Garmin unit (the GRID is compatible with any of Garmin 8000 series). If you have more than one 8000 display then that’s no problem for this device which provides full functionality from your display or from a captains chair for a low-profile controlling solution.
The rotary knob and joystick controls provide easy navigation through the menus and screens, allowing you to seamlessly navigate between monitors on your vessel – all while controlling single or multiple 8000-series monitors and multifunctional displays (MFDs) with 1 device.
