B&G’s Vulcan family of sailing-specific chart plotters — a refreshed 7-inch and 9-inch, and a new 12-inch — have built-in Wi-Fi, broadband radar compatibility, SailSteer and SailingTime, and combine data on one screen. The SailSteer chart overlay shows lay lines and wind shifts, PredictWind helps with weather forecasting and route planning, and Startline provides a countdown timer and racecourse-building tool. B&G’s broadband 3G or 4G radar lets users track targets 36 miles away, see close obstacles in poor visibility and keep an eye on distant storm cells. $699 to $2,199. bandg.com
