How to update the software on a Vulcan or Zeus chartplotter

Option 1: Download the file to a microSD card.

1: Download the relevant file from to a blank memory card. We recommend that you use a separate card to the chart card to avoid any possibility of damaging the chart data.

3: Power on the device. The software update should automatically start.


If it doesn’t start, go to the home screen and click on ‘files’. Select the SD card and click on the relevant update file. As you respond to the prompts the update occurs. Prompts may request that you restart the device to complete the update. You can restart devices to complete the update later at a more convenient time.
