Welcome to the B&G Vulcan range
B&G's Vulcan range of sailing chartplotters take the guesswork
out of sailing. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or just starting
out, Vulcan is packed with features that will help you get the most from
your time on the water.
Easy to use touch screen
We’ve designed our
Vulcan chartplotters to be as intuitive as a tablet or smartphone. The
low-profile, super-bright display is visible even in direct sunlight,
and the responsive touch screen gives fingertip control, even in flying
spray and a rough sea state. Pinch-to-zoom, swipe and tap controls let
you input waypoints and routes and view chart details with ease.
Simple to add Waypoints and Routes
guide you safely to your destination: place waypoints and routes with a
single tap on the chart and let Vulcan take you there with clear,
intuitive graphics and data for guidance. Add a compatible chart card to
benefit from autorouting and let Vulcan’s intelligent software choose
the best and safest route to your destination.
Dedicated Sailing Features for cruising and racing
can use Vulcan as a simple chartplotter as soon as you connect it to
power, or for more advanced features, add to speed, depth and wind
instruments. Let Vulcan take care of the complex calculations – leaving
you free to relax and enjoy the sailing.
- SailSteer - 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.
- Laylines - Let Vulcan 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.
- SailingTime - 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.
- RacePanel - Be on the line when 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.
Put Vulcan at the heart of
your boat and take control of your B&G autopilot from your Vulcan’s
touchscreen. With an installed controller elsewhere, the intuitive
controls can be accessed from any screen with a simple tap and allow you
to alter course, tack, gybe, sail to wind or compass. Take advantage of
the advanced sailing algorithms that make B&G Pilots as good as the
best helmsman – all from your Vulcan’s touch screen.
Mirror the screen on your phone
sunlight-viewable, waterproof display gives you a reliable navigation
display at the helm or chart table – and now you can see it from
anywhere on board on your smartphone or tablet. Built in WiFi allows you
to mirror and control the screen from anywhere on board using the Link
App on your mobile device, 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 software updates straight
to your device. Connect your phone via Bluetooth to read and respond to
text messages from the chartplotter’s display.
A range of mounting options
Get up and running
quickly: Vulcan chartplotters are optimised for sleek flush mounting,
standing only 8mm proud of the bulkhead for a low-profile ‘glass helm’
look. Alternatively, mount in minutes using the supplied bracket on
horizontal, vertical or overhead surfaces.
