B&G Vulcan 5 Multi Touch Chartplotter 

PART NUMBER: 738-00012453001


B&G Vulcan 5 is a 5-inch chartplotter built specifically for sailors. Packed with sailing specific functions such as B&G’s Award Winning SailSteer™ and Sailing Time, sailors can see all key sailing data at a glance. SailSteer allows sailors to view crucial sailing data on one handy screen or alternatively overlaid on your position on the chartplotter screen.

With the addition of sailing instruments and sensors via NMEA 2000® network, SailSteer evolves with the possibility to show Boat Speed, Wind data, Heading, Tide, Wind Shift Sectors and even Laylines – enhancing the detail on the SailSteer and chart screens. Sailors can also make the most of Sailing Time, which provides accurate waypoint arrival times based on realistic sailing manoeuvres, rather than a straight-line calculation.

When connected to a B&G Pilot system, the Vulcan 5 acts as a fully functioning autopilot controller providing Intelligent Sail Steering, manual and auto steering functions and Smart Manoeuvre combined with intuitive menus for ultimate control.

Vulcan 5 has built in WIFI allowing you to connect to the internet, via a marina or smartphone Hotspot, and access the GoFree™ Shop where you can download charts and software updates direct to your Vulcan 5. You can also repeat your Vulcan 5 on your smartphone or tablet allowing you to view and control (tablet only) your chartplotter from virtually anywhere on your boat.
