Want to navigate using the same hardware as the Volvo Ocean Race boats? B&G’s new Zeus3 chartplotter is just as useful for cruisers as for racers. Available in 7in, 9in, 12in and 16in versions, its touchscreen display is backed up by a rotary dial and keypad. The display boasts ultra-wide viewing angles and its fast processor enables real-time chart redrawing. Built-in Wi-Fi means that charts and weather information can be updated via internet hotspots and the screen can be viewed via B&G’s GoFree app on a smartphone or tablet.
From $1,299 (7in). B&G, bandg.com
