Yesterday, Jan. 24, we were invited by B&G to Boot Düsseldorf for the press presentation of Zeus S, the new generation of chartplotter that is based on a revamped operating system. Zeus S is designed to simplify sailing by displaying information tailored to the sailor’s immediate needs and hiding unnecessary information.

The double soul of Zeus S

Designed from the ground up to be used by anyone without having to read a manual, Zeus S features new navigation modes, preset dashboards, and data views covering a wide range of situations. A new operating system, based on Android, simple and intuitive, accompanied by a more powerful processor than the Vulcan, similar to that of the Zeus 3S.

Users simply select the appropriate mode for the sailing situation, and Zeus S will provide the necessary information for cruising or racing. Unique features of the race interface include the ability to orient the map to the wind, so that the boat’s heading angle is immediately apparent to the helmsman. In addition, the new chartplotter continues to support advanced functions for sailing, including updates for SailSteer, layline, routes, and others. Also present is a timer for departures, with the ability to synchronize the countdown. The color scheme of the interface has been revised, with greater use of white than black to make menus stand out better in the sun.

Zeus S is our most intuitive chartplotter for sailing and is designed to be the centerpiece of the navigation system” said Kevin Steinbraker, VP and general manager, Digital Systems at Navico Group. “Zeus S is the perfect solution for cruising sailors, with easy-to-use navigation modes that make it easy to see the data you need, when you need it.”

C-MAP safety alerts to avoid collisions

The system is compatible with C-MAP DISCOVER X and REVEAL X nautical charts. It thus enables the use of perfectly matched next-generation cartography and supports the new Safety Alerts function, which, through chart data, can detect objects that may pose a risk of collision and warns if stranding hazards have been identified. With highly accurate data supported by near real-time updates, C-MAP nautical charts are packed with features including tides and current projections, autorouting, and quick one-touch access to points of interest, tides, channels, and more.

Zeus S. Integrated with the B&G ecosystem

The device also integrates with the B&G app, allowing users to plan trips, review routes and manage waypoints from home and then synchronize once on board,” Steinbraker said. “Sailors will appreciate the connectivity options, with easy integration with NMEA 2000 for connection to autopilot, instruments, radar, sailing processors, audio, engines and a wide range of other compatible products.”

Connect it to Triton Edge for High Performace navigation

Zeus S finally can be connected to a Triton Edge controller that offers an advanced suite with more accurate navigation data. In addition to improved StartLine calculations, advanced boat speed calibration, and real wind data, Triton Edge can correct the wind for heeling/axis angles providing better information to both user and system, thus improving efficiency on the water. A complete system that comes very close in performance to the H5000 suite, B&G’s range developed for cruise ships and racing yachts.

The device is already available on the market starting at a price of €1,024.80. Three versions are available with 7-, 9- or 12-inch screens.
