Intuitive, multi-touch chartplotter for sailors

The B&G Vulcan 9 is a chartplotter built specifically for sailors, packed with sailing-specific functions and featuring an intuitive 9-inch multi-touch display. Pinch to zoom, swipe to pan; the Vulcan 9 is as easy to use as a smartphone or tablet, and designed to make your life on the water easier.

Full-featured Chartplotter
This powerful chartplotter has all the usual features such as waypoints, routes and tracks. It comes with a high performance internal GPS antenna ensuring pinpoint position accuracy.

Dedicated Sail & Cruise Features
With B&G’s award-winning SailSteer™ function, you can see all of your key sailing data at a glance. View data together on one handy dedicated screen, or overlaid on charts for the modern sailor’s ultimate navigational view. With the addition of sailing instruments and sensors via industry-standard NMEA 2000® networking, SailSteer evolves to show Boat Speed, Wind data, Heading, Tide, Wind Shift Sectors and even Laylines – enhancing the detail on SailSteer and chart screens. It’s easy to add waypoints or plot a course; with B&G SailingTime you’ll see waypoint arrival times based on realistic sailing course and tidal effects, rather than a straight-line calculation.

Secondary autopilot controller
When connected to a B&G Pilot system, the Vulcan 9 acts as a secondary autopilot controller providing Intelligent Sail Steering, manual and auto steering functions, and Smart Manoeuvre functionality combined with intuitive menus for ultimate control.

Instrument Display
Integrate the Vulcan 9 with your onboard instruments to use the screen as a large, highly-visible instrument display. Create and customise single, dual and 4-way data page layouts.

Widescreen, Multi-Touch Display
Vulcan 9 design delivers maximum display space in a small form factor. The intuitive multi-touch interface features common gestures like pinch-to-zoom and swipe-to-pan, making the Vulcan 9 incredibly easy to use.

Choice of Charts
Choose from C-MAP™, Navionics®, NV Digital™ or Insight charting options to make the most of your routing and planning.

Integrated Wi-Fi
Vulcan 9 features built in Wi-Fi 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 display. You can also mirror the screen of your Vulcan 9 on a compatible smartphone or tablet, allowing you to view and control (tablet only) your chartplotter from virtually anywhere on your boat. This makes the Vulcan 9 an incredibly cost effective dual-station solution for smaller boats.

Smart NMEA 2000 networking
Easily and seamlessly connect essential kit for cruising and sailing such as sailing instruments, the B&G SonicHub marine audio server, ZG100 external GPS antenna, and DSC VHF Marine Radio. Vulcan 9 gathers data as you sail, ready when you need it.

Broadband Radar™
Add B&G Broadband 3G™ or 4G™ Radar to keep watch as you sail, with the ability to identify and track targets from 36 nautical miles away (4G) to right off the bow. Cruise safely through crowded harbours, avoid obstacles in poor visibility, and keep an eye on distant storm cells all from your Vulcan 9 display.

ForwardScan™
Add an optional ForwardScan™ transducer to see what lies ahead under the water with approaching depth information. Explore poorly-charted or unfamiliar waters confidently with a clear image of the bottom ahead of your boat.

SiriusXM Weather Integration
The B&G Vulcan 9 is the only Vulcan Series display compatible with SiriusXM Marine satellite weather, via the optional WM-3 expansion module, for real-time access to weather information right on your display. With onboard access to weather radar, surface buoy reports, NOAA Marine Zone forecasts and more, you can check out the conditions offshore before you even leave the dock. SiriusXM Marine is a subscription service, exclusively available within North America.
