Chartplotter

B&G Zeus3 12"

This chartplotter will be mounted at the helm station to give us routing, data, radar display, etc, and will often be in split screen mode (see pic left), which is why we want the larger 12" screen. We like this unit due to the nice integration with Predict Wind and your Iridium Go to download weather and routing right into the chartplotter. The B&G system is built for sailing, so it is the obvious system for our catamaran.

Since it has built in Wifi, we will add a large tablet at the Nav Station to mirror it's functions at that location.

Tablets

Android Samsung Tablet Tab S3, 9.7" Wifi

These can control the chartplotter from remote, and will work with the B&G at the helm, at a fraction of the cost of an additional chartplotter. It can also run Navionics independently, as a backup to all chartplotters. This will be used at the Nav Station as well as other locations on the boat. It will also be how we plot a course when scouting with the dinghy. Navionics can transfer date from the Android device to the Zeus3 Chartplotter on the main boat.

3D Sonar

FLS 3D
3D FORWARD LOOKING SONAR



This 3D sonar shows an image of the bottom at a 60 degree view, up to 20x the depth. It also works at up to 20 knots of speed, where many forward scanning sonars can only handle extremely slow speeds. It comes with a keypad but plugs into any HDMI or VGA input, so we could use a second monitor just for this display.  We want this... but for cost reasons, we may have to wait until later to add this to the boat.  These are around $12,000

B&G  Trident2 Digital Display
Multi-purpose sailing instrument and autopilot display with a 4.1" color screen, optically bonded for zero condensation and featuring trans-flective LCD technology for exceptional contrast and visibility in all lighting conditions. 8mm mounting height matches other B&G MFD's and system component.

The full-colour Triton² Display provides sailors with a clear visual representation of key instrument data including Speed, Depth, Wind, Heading, AIS targets, GPS data and more.

An Optically Bonded display means absolutely zero condensation or fogging, while transflective LCD technology provides exceptional contrast and visibility - day or night - while consuming less power than traditional backlight-only displays. The flexible, NMEA 2000® certified, Triton² Display can be integrated into a wider navigation system and also be combined with a Triton² Pilot keypad and NAC autopilot computer to create a complete autopilot control system, featuring B&G sail-specific autopilot steering algorithms.

We will have two of these, one at the helm and one at the nav station.
