Designed for bluewater sailboats, the Zeus3 Glass Helm from B&G has a high-definition display that can be seen from nearly any angle and through polarized lenses. Data appears in split-screen view or on overlaid charts. A quad-core processor eliminates the need for a separate black box, simplifying installation and making it easier to integrate radar, ForwardScan, charting, autopilot, sonar, digital monitoring and control, and more. SailSteer graphically displays boat speed, wind speed, heading, tide, wind-shift sectors and lay lines. Available in screen sizes of 16, 19 and 24 inches. $6,999 to $10,999. bandg.com
