Dear George, unfortunately that is not possible. You need to use Navionics+ or C-MAP MAX-N+ preprogrammed charts on the B&G Vulcan devices.

Thanks your reply. That means I have to buy the same charts yet again that I use. I have done that now about 4 times each time I upgrade/buy a new chart plotter. Seems very unfair.

Dear Miguel, it´s possible to connect this both plotters. But only for simply data´s like speed, depth, gps, and so on. It´s not possible to transfer card-informations or depth-grafics. For the connection you have to use the NMEA2000 network. Your SVB-team.

Dear Georgios, we recommend the Navionics+ 43XG Mediterradnean & Black Sea chart (Art.: 77239). Please mind that the B&G Vulcan5 uses Micro-SD cards, you can choose "Micro-SD" before you add the chart to your cart.

B&G VULCAN 5
Voor minder dan de prijs van een instrument display, een volledige MFD!
Mijn oude serie Raymarine Seatalk instrumenten opgeruimd en vervangen door 2 VULCAN 5 displays. Seatalk converter op een NMEA 2000 backbone werkt ook perfect.

Einfach Spitze!
Aufgrund der speziellen Einbausituation auf meiner kleinen SY konnte ich nur dieses kompakte Gerät installieren.
In Kombination mit einem Triton2 für die Anzeige der Segeldaten usw. ist die Displaygröße für mich völlig ausreichend. Von der Funktion her ist dieses Gerät wirklich ein "Großer".
Installation mit DST800 und WS320 hat über NMEA2000 sehr gut geklappt.
Klare Kaufempfehlung wenn ein kleines 5" Display ausreicht.
