The highly accurate GPS 19x HVS position receiver/antenna
provides up to 10 Hz update rates for position, velocity and time
data.It offers high-sensitivity reception and enhanced position
acquisition to the Garmin family of marine multifunctional displays
(MFD), instrument display and autopilots.
Note: This GPS is not a drop in replacement for the GPS 17x HVS
Delivers Precise Location Data
This 32-channel receiver is capable of tracking multiple global
navigation satellite systems, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo¹ and
QZSS¹. Since more satellites are visible, it can provide more accurate
fixes in challenging conditions. With its enhanced position, heading and
speed accuracy delivered up to 10 times more often than other
receivers/antennas, it provides smoother drawing of your position on the
chartplotter/MFD at higher speeds.
WAAS-capable, it can determine your precise location to within 3 m (9.84 ft).
Compared to units with slower update rates, the GPS 19x offers
dramatic improvement when used at low speeds. Position and course
information from slower units can jitter and swing considerably at
speeds below 1 mph. The GPS 19x provides a consistent and smooth heading
which is especially important when trying to hit a specific waypoint or
The GPS 19x also reflects the true boat heading smoothly and
accurately. This is especially evident when coming out of turns. And,
the GPS 19x eliminates position skipping that can occur at low speeds
and when turning the boat in an arc. The GPS 19x maintains a smooth
position throughout the turn².
Built for Versatility
Part of the Garmin marine instrument family, the GPS 19x HVS is built
to withstand the elements. This waterproof (IPX7) sensor can be pole
mounted or flush mounted. It also can be attached to the underside of
many fiberglass decks for added ease of installation. In addition, it
also can be configured to have a 1 Hz update rate to help support
specific installation requirements. In addition, it also can be
configured to have 1 Hz or 5 Hz update rates to help support specific
¹Supported when available. A software update may be required.
²The GPSMAP 6000 series, 7000 series and newer chartplotters have
been optimized to fully use the 10 Hz information from the GPS 19x.
