Award-winning sailing features

With B&G’s award-winning sailing functions, you can see all of your key sailing data together on one screen, or overlaid on charts for the modern sailor’s ultimate navigation view.  Taking accurate data from the B&G instruments and sensors on the network, B&G SailSteer will provide an intuitive graphic display of your Boat Speed, Wind, Heading, Tide, Wind Shift Sectors and Laylines.  It’s easy to add waypoints or plot a course; and with B&G SailingTime you’ll see waypoint arrival times based on a sailing course and tidal effects, rather than a straight-line calculation.

SailSteer

The SailSteer screen combines key sailing data such as Heading, Wind, Laylines, and Tide into one clear, easy to read display. Advanced features include Wind Angle Target indicator and Wind Shift Sectors.

Laylines

Navigation data is calculated via laylines, rather than a simple straight-line waypoint to waypoint route, which is rarely followed by sailors.

Sailing Time

Sailing Time calculates actual sailing time to a waypoint via Laylines rather than a straight line route, which is rarely used by yachts and sailing boats.

RacePanel

RacePanel from B&G provides proven race features for your Zeus² chartplotter: Start Line, Start Line on Chart, Race Timer, Windward/Leeward Course Builder & What If?
