Description

B&G Vulcan FS chartplotters are are compact, low profile multifunction display units, with software designed specifically for sailors.

At a glance, the Vulcan FS series offers sailing specific chartplotting and navigation. Once coupled with B&G wind, compass and speed sensors, the Vulcan FS becomes a cruising and racing powerhouse. The advanced sailing features include B&Gs award winning SailSteer™, which can showcase all this important information on a dedicated screen, or can overlay it onto the chartplotter screen. Information like laylines, apparent & true wind speeds, true course speeds, as well as tracking to develop knock and lift data, is all displayed on the ultra-bright screen which can be seen through tacks, gybes and rain or rough weather. And having the Vulcan mounted up the front isn't an issue for the skippers at the back, either, as the built in WiFi module allows for screen mirroring to smart phones, and control by tablets with B&G's GoFree Application*. The WiFI module also allows the Vulcan FS to connect to the internet, allowing downloads of charts and software updates directly to the unit. 

The Vulcan FS series is also a fully functioning autopilot controller, which can use the above data to keep to waypoints and laylines suitable for sailing. With Intelligent Sail Steering and Smart Manoeuvre, sailors can sit back with confidence, knowing that their B&G Vulcan is keeping them on an optimal course for their boat. 

The Vulcan FS is a true Multi-Function Display, with capability for B&G Broadband Radars, and a range of other B&G instruments which can all be connected seamlessly through the NMEA2000 network.

New for the FS models is the capability to run a ForwardScan transducer, giving depth information before the vessel is in the shallows. The Vulcan FS, coupled with a ForwardScan Transducer, will give skippers a real-time, clear image of the water in front of the vessel, and with it, the confidence to explore poorly-charted or unfamiliar areas.
