Easy-to-Use Multi-Touch Display
The VULCAN 9FS offers true ease of use with intuitive touchscreen controls that smartphone and tablet users will find instantly familiar. Tap to create or select waypoints, pinch to zoom, or tap and drag to pan smoothly across charts. Simple home screen and menu layouts make all functions quickly accessible, with large and clearly-captioned icons that are easy to recognise and tap.

Chartplotter Navigation & Waypoint Management
The VULCAN 9FS is a fully-featured chartplotter, with support for the widest available range of cartography options including C-MAP® MAX-N, Navionics®, Insight®, Insight Genesis®, and NV Digital® Charts. Navigate confidently to destinations near and far, with the flexibility to choose charts that best fit your needs and location. Set and record those destinations easily with simple waypoint mangement: mark waypoints with a touch, and assign meaningful names that make it easy to look up your desired destination whether you’ve mapped out ten places or a thousand.

Expand your View with a B&G Radar Device
The B&G VULCAN 9FS is a fully-featured radar display with plug-and-play connectivity to B&G Broadband 3G™, Broadband 4G™, and Halo™ Pulse Compression radar systems. Cruise confidently through crowded harbours, navigate safely in poor visibility, keep an eye on distant weather cells, and find flocks of feeding birds that hint at good fishing spots. Automatic tuning helps to provide a clear radar picture in any conditions, while radar overlay combines radar data with navigational charts for an easy-to-interpret view of your surroundings.

Fully Customisable Interface
The B&G VULCAN 9FS is fully customisable to suit your vessel and your favourite on-water activities – from power boating, to fishing, to water sports. Customise your home screen with shortcuts to the features you use most, and personalise it with your choice of wallpaper. Adjustable split-screen views and customisable panel layouts let you see everything you need on-screen at once, whatever your activity.

Plan Smarter with TripIntel™ Technology
Designed for power boaters, TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information you need to plan safe and enjoyable days on the water. Make smart decisions with fuel range overlaid on charts, easy access to current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of your previous trips including the route you took and how your boat performed.

Easier Navigation with Automatic Routing
Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, helping you to plot a route and get underway with less delay. Simply select a destination, and your B&G VULCAN 9FS display will suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel. This feature is available with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts (Navionics Autorouting), and with Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts (Jeppesen Easy Routing).

Built-in 10 Hz GPS receiver*
With a high-speed GPS receiver updating your position ten times every second, the B&G VULCAN 9FS is ideal for use aboard fast-moving RIBs and powerboats. Watch your boat’s movement tracked smoothly, accurately, and in real-time, without ‘jumping’ from point to point on the display. * Built-in GPS receiver works in any bracket-mount installation, and when flush-mounted with most fibreglass hulls. When flush-mounted in a metal hulled vessel, an external GPS receiver, such as the B&G ZG100, may be required.

Cruise Charting View
Designed with power boating in mind, the B&G VULCAN 9FS offers a unique Cruise Charting page that brings together crucial navigation data and charts in one easily readable display. Choose the information most relevant to your crusing style and on-water activities with the ability to edit on-screen data items.

NMEA 2000® Engine Monitoring & Instrumentation
The B&G VULCAN 9FS connects to any NMEA 2000®-capable equipment aboard your vessel including outboard and inboard engines; fuel level and flow meters; speed, heading, and water temperature sensors; and much more. Create your own custom digital instrument displays, bringing a wealth of information to even the most crowded dash while keeping a clean look with as few gauges as possible.

Watch your Depth with Built-in Sonar
Knowing the true depth beneath your hull can help you enjoy your time on the water with fewer worries, and makes it easier to locate suitable anchorages in unfamiliar waters. With built-in sonar, just add a suitable sonar transducer for accurate, real-time depth tracking. A scrollable depth history view lets you track back and easily set waypoints for promising anchorages, while StructureScan Imaging™ combines DownScan and SideScan sonar to offer a picture-like view of the bottom beneath your vessel.

Cruise Confidently with ForwardScan™ Sonar
Using an optional ForwardScan transducer, this forward-looking sonar technology provides a clear two-dimensional image of the bottom in front of your vessel, allowing you to navigate shallow or poorly-charted waters with confidence. With real-time updates and a forward-looking view of up to eight times your current depth, ForwardScan lets you relax and enjoy a safer day on the water.

Find Fish with CHIRP & StructureScan® HD Sidescan Imaging
Whether fishing is your life or just a casual hobby, any fishing trip will benefit from the extensive array of built-in sonar technology on the B&G VULCAN 9FS. Add a suitable transducer, available separately or bundled with your display, and the GO9 XSE works as a powerful fishfinder with CHIRP-enabled broadband sonar for clear detection of fish throughout the water column. With an optional HDI or TotalScan transducer, the VULCAN 9FS also offers StructureScan HD sidescan imaging for a picture-like view of fish-holding structure beneath and around your boat.

Simrad SonicHub®2 & Bluetooth® Audio Integration
If you’re not at home on the water without a good soundtrack, the Simrad SonicHub®2 marine audio system is the perfect companion to a B&G VULCAN 9FS display. Stream music from Bluetooth® connected tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, play MP3 files from a USB flash drive, or listen to the SonicHub 2’s built-in AM/FM radio. SonicHub 2 brings complete control of your audio entertainment to your VULCAN 9FS display, eliminating the need for a separate stereo head-unit and letting you listen to your music, your way.

GoFree™ Cloud Enabled with Built-in Wi-Fi
With Wi-Fi built in, the B&G VULCAN 9FS provides direct access to GoFree cloud services including easy wireless map downloads, software updates, and more. Whether connected to your home Wi-Fi with your boat trailered in the driveway, logged in to your marina’s Wi-Fi, or tethered to your smartphone out on the lake, you can access GoFree cloud services anywhere you have an internet connection. On the water, GoFree connects the B&G VULCAN 9FS to your mobile devices, mirroring your display’s screen on your smartphone or giving you full remote control from your tablet with the free GoFree Controller app.

Arrivato. Vulcan 9
The product arrived, together with the plotter there was an assembly manual, and a quick installation guide. The complete guide with all the operations that this plotter can do is missing. How do I get the complete guide to take advantage of all the functions of this article?

Flag of English Can it be connected as a secondary plotter to Zeus 3 deck plotter?
User image of Arne C.
Arne C. answered
on Sep 28, 2020
Hi Maciej, No, this is not possible, because the Vulcan have no Ethernetport. You only can conntect them, by NMEA2000 to share sensordata like depth, GPS, SOG, Wind etc.

Thanks a lot. But there will be no problem with 2 plotters consuming same data? Also can there be interference when trying to use one plotter GoFree functionality and tablet?

Denis S. answered
on Oct 2, 2020
No problem at all. N2k data is available to all connected devices at same time. The FoFree connected tablet need to chose which plotter shall be shown. So either Zeus3 or Vulcan.

Hi Raimond, you need the NMEA2000 Starter Kit for the power supply for the network.

Flag of English Hi, im thinking about the Vulcan 9 for my yacht. Now i have few qestions im thinkig about: - can i use the old depth sensor with coaxial wire from the old depthfinder? I need just the depth. (important) - I have an old Navico hydraulic autopilot (1996) - will it work together? (not so important) - the Navionics charts are some special or i can download it as i have it in my phone? Or is there some cheap source for charts as i would like to sail around the world again and dont want to spend all money for charts... (without charts is this device useless :-)) Thanks for any reaction! Stan

Denis S. answered
on Jun 17, 2022
Hi Stan, you can only connect NMEA0183 or NMEA2000 devices to Vulcan9, no coax analog without interfacing to one of the above. Old AP won't work since it has no NMEA2000 interface and software. All kind of Charts will work from Navionics, C-Map and NV-Charts. But no chart from Navionics Mobile App. As example look online at the C-Map chart explorer to learn about coverage and sizes.

Hi Willem, at the moment we don´t have the device on stock. From the manufacturer we normally recieve the devices with the latest software. In any case you can update the software easy by WIFI or with micro SD chart.
