The Zeus 3S series are the complete navigation solution for blue water cruisers and regatta racers. With superfast processors you can display up to 6 different information panels simultaneously, on the ultra-bright SolarMax IPS all- weather touchscreen, which is combined with a rotary dial and keypad for ultimate control in all conditions.
These easy to use chartplotters include all of B&G’s unique and proven sailing features such as SailSteer, Laylines, and RacePanel and integrate seamlessly with a wide range of instruments and accessories for greater safety, performance, and enjoyment on the water.
The SolarMAX IPS screen ensures perfect visibility in all conditions. Zeus 3S’s screen has been tested to the limit in everything from tropical sunlight to the depths of the southern ocean and polar winters. You can see it through polarised sunglasses, and the responsive touchscreen works even in flying spray and rough sea.
Super-fast processor for immediate response
Enjoy exceptional situational awareness thanks to Zeus 3S’s high-performance processor. There’s plenty of processing power to run charts, radar, ForwardScan and autopilot controls simultaneously without compromising on performance – giving you all the tools you need to enjoy the sailing, safe in the knowledge that you can monitor your surroundings.
Dedicated Sailing Features for Cruising and Racing
Navigate with confidence with Zeus 3S’s award winning sailing features:
See all the data you need at a glance on one easy-to-read display with SailSteer. See crucial wind, speed, tide, heading, course over ground, layline and waypoint information, overlaid on one screen to ensure you have the information you need at your fingertips.
Let Zeus 3S do the hard work: See your course and minimise your time spent beating with Laylines overlaid on your chart. See which way is best and ensure you tack in the right place to help you get to windward as efficiently as possible. Laylines even take into account tidal effects and wind shifts to plot the quickest course to the next waypoint.
Plan effectively with SailingTime and know how long it will take to get to a waypoint, even if it’s dead upwind. SailingTime calculates the time you’ll spend on each tack, taking into account wind and tidal effects, to give you an accurate ETA at your destination.
Be on the line as the gun goes with RacePanel. Enjoy easy-to-use features previously only enjoyed by Pro navigators to ensure you get the best start in the fleet, with time, distance and positioning information on a single clear display.
Seamless integration with your instruments
Enjoy a fully connected sailing experience and control and monitor your H5000 instrument system on board from the display. Zeus 3S can also take full control of on-board systems using Naviop and CZone, allowing fingertip command and monitoring of lights and systems on board.
Integrated keypad for complete control
Zeus 3S has an integrated rotary dial and keypad that can take over control of all functions in extreme conditions, along with customisable keys for instant access to frequently-used functions.
Easy to expand your network
Just add power to enjoy Zeus 3S as a versatile standalone chartplotter with first-rate navigation functions. For the best experience and to take advantage of our award-winning sailing features, network your chartplotter with instruments and sensors using industry standard NMEA 2000 connectivity.
Zeus 3S sits at the heart of your boat – and you can take command of commissioning and controlling your B&G autopilot from your Zeus 3S’s touchscreen. Tack, gybe, sail to wind or compass heading and take advantage of the advanced sailing algorithms that make B&G Pilots the best in their class.
See what lies ahead under the water by adding a ForwardScan transducer. Benefit from a real-time two-dimensional view of the seabed in front of your boat. Navigate into shallow anchorages and poorly charted areas with ease and know what lies ahead with confidence.
Negotiate busy shipping lanes, see through darkness and poor visibility and track weather cells with B&G Halo Radar on your Zeus 3S.
Add a SonicHub to take control of your onboard entertainment from your Zeus 3S display. With integrated Bluetooth, stream music from your smartphone or tablet, or listen to music on a USB drive or AM/FM radio. Control everything including volume and individual zones from your Zeus 3S display.
Zeus 3S chartplotters support a wide range of leading cartography, from C-MAP and Navionics. Take advantage of advanced mapping features including autorouting, dynamic tides and currents, aerial photos and detailed harbour charts to ensure you know exactly what lies beneath your keel at all times.
Mirror the screen on your phone
Built in WiFi allows you to mirror and control the screen from anywhere on board on a Smartphone or Tablet using the Link App, for a cost-effective dual-station solution. Back up your settings and waypoints, or connect to a Wireless hotspot or marina WiFi to download weather forecasts and download software updates straight to your device. Connect your phone via Bluetooth to read and respond to text messages from the chartplotter’s display.
