is a 5-inch chartplotter built specifically for sailors. Packed with sailing specific functions such as B&G’s Award Winning SailSteer and Sailing Time, sailors can see all key sailing data at a glance. SailSteer allows sailors to view crucial sailing data on one handy screen or alternatively overlaid on your position on the chartplotter screen.
