Award winning sailing features

The Vulcan chartplotter is packed full of innovative sailing features: Find out why you should choose a Vulcan here:


B&G’s award-winning SailSteer page gives you all the information you need at a glance - wind, boat speed, tide, heading, course over ground, layline and waypoint information in one easy and powerful instrument view.


Race Panel brings features previously enjoyed only by pro navigators to Vulcan and Zeus chartplotters. The timer and start line screen will ensure your boat is on the line for start after start, while the powerful Look Ahead feature will let you call for a gybe set or smaller headsail long before your competitors have even noticed the windshift.


B&G’s layline technology calculates the best time to tack on an upwind leg, ensuring you get your layline calls bang on, time and time again, even in strong tides or shifty winds.


Our chartplotters calculate time and distance remaining to a waypoint - even when you’re sailing upwind!


Keep track of wind speed and direction with B&G’s easy to read Windplot panel. Identify oscillating and permanent windshifts with ease with our intuitive interface


Engage and take charge of the autopilot direct from your B&G chartplotter and enjoy the reassurance of seamless integration and control, while you sit back and relax.


B&G offers you the widest choice of charts for sailing, from mapping leaders C-MAP and Navionics® to specialist chart provider NV Digital and many more for accurate, informed navigation
