B&G®, the world's leading sailing navigation and instrument specialist, today announced the release of a new software update for Zeus³, Zeus², Zeus² Glass Helm and Vulcan Series displays.

This new software includes exciting new features including; Advanced WindPlot, Device Registration and C-MAP® charting improvements.

Find out more about installing the update at www.bandg.com/help--support

Advanced WindPlot

WindPlot is available on the B&G Zeus and Vulcan series of products and allows users to keep track of wind speed and direction. This new software release sees the introduction of Advanced WindPlot, a special type of Time Plot available on the Zeus series of products only, specifically designed to help understand recent changes in wind speed and direction.

The updates to WindPlot are aimed at providing users with a clearer view of wind trends, easier comparison of True Wind Speed (TWS) to True Wind Direction (TWD) and better display in small panels for use alongside charts, RacePanel or SailSteer features.

Device Registration

This latest software update also offers a new Device Registration option, designed to enhance user support. When a device is registered, future software updates will be sent directly through to the device when they become available, taking the hassle out of a previously manual process. There are two simple ways to complete Device Registration - during start-up, the device will prompt the user to register the product, or alternatively, the Device Registration set-up is located in the System settings dialog. To complete registration users need to connect their device to the internet or use a smart device with internet access.

C-MAP Navigation Palette

The new software includes enhancements to the C-MAP chart presentation with the introduction of a new palette that closely matches several common hydrographic office presentations. This update is most apparent near shore, where the colours used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are nicely differentiated and water contour lines are distinct. The new palette makes it easier to see where the boat is in relation to a channel, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The colour scheme is also much easier on the eye.
