B&G®, the world's leading sailing electronics manufacturer, unveiled the new B&G Zeus® S this week, the next generation of chartplotters in the B&G range, running the new operating system, which has been built from the ground-up with ease of use at its core.

Zeus S was designed to make sailing easier, displaying information tailored to the sailor's needs in that moment, and hiding unnecessary clutter.

The Zeus S comes with new sailing modes, preset dashboards and data views for a variety of sailing situations, along with many enhanced features for a simpler sailing experience. All of this is backed up by exclusive C-MAP® charting options, for the safest and easiest navigation.

"Zeus S is our most intuitive chartplotter for sailing yet and is designed to be at the heart of your cruising system," said Kevin Steinbraker, VP and General Manager, Digital Systems of Navico Group. "Zeus S is the perfect solution for cruising sailors with simple sailing modes making it easy to see the data you want, when you want it."

Zeus S is compatible with C-MAP® DISCOVER™ X and REVEAL™ X charts, delivering perfectly matched next generation charting, and supporting the new Safety Alerts feature, which uses chart data to identify objects which may pose a collision risk and flags any identified risk of grounding. With highly accurate data supported by near-real-time updates, C-MAP charts are packed with features, including tides and current projections, autorouting plus get quick, one-touch access to points of interest, tides, channels, and more.

"Zeus S also integrates with the B&G App, allowing users to plan trips, review routes, and manage waypoints from home, then sync once on board," said Steinbraker. "Sailors will love the connectivity options, with easy integration using NMEA 2000 to connect to Autopilot, Instruments, Radar, Sailing Processors, Audio, Engines, and a wealth of other compatible products."

The Zeus S is available to the public beginning January 19, 2023, and starting at a retail price of $999. Customers can choose between 7-, 9- and 12-inch screen sizes.
