Multifunction display with touchscreen & keypad
The B&G Zeus3 chartplotter not only features a slim design, but also a wide range of award-winning sailing features. Use the B&G Zeus3 as a chart plotter with a range of intuitive functions. Display a variety of information such as tank levels, AIS, depth and speed data via the NMEA2000 interface. Thanks to Forwardscan® compatibility (transducer optionally available), always know what to expect.
The ultra-bright, wide-angle display combines an all-weather touch screen, rotary control and keypad. This makes operation simple and precise in every situation, whether below or on deck. Use the integrated WiFi for display mirroring and B&G online services
Chartplotters of size 12" and larger are often integrated into an existing navigation panel, therefore the B&G Zeus3 12" and 16" do not include bracket mounts. These can be ordered separately.
Chartplotter with sailing functions
Fully featured chartplotter
The integrated 10 Hz GPS receiver and multi-touch display with the latest pinch-to-zoom technology make the 5" display a fully functional chart plotter. Take advantage of Navionics+ and C-MAP MAX-N+ nautical chart support and choose from a variety of sailing areas.
Award-winning sailing features
Experience the highly acclaimed B&G Sailing/Cruising features such as SailSteer™, SailTime™, Laylines, Windplot and enhanced display of sailing instruments with the B&G Zeus3. These functions not only boost your performance in regattas, but also allow you to enjoy a relaxed afternoon cruise.
To take full advantage of the B&G sailing functions we recommend the B&G WS310 or WS320 (wireless) wind sensor. This can be easily connected to the B&G Zeus3 via the NMEA2000 network and gives you the exact wind direction and speed.
On the easy-to-read Sailsteer™ display, cruicial sailing parameters such as wind information, speed, tide, course, course over ground, layline and waypoints can be displayed directly.
This gives you the information you need at your fingertips.
Current course and laylines are overlaid on your chart, giving you an excellent overview. The B&G Layline function lets you see which way is best and ensure you tack in the right place to help you get to windward as efficiently as possible. Laylines takes into account tide and wind changes to plot the fastest course to the next waypoint. To use Laylines we recommend a B&G wind sensor.
Plan your regatta or your next journey effectively. SailingTime™ keeps you up to date and always lets you know how long it will take to get to a waypoint. It calculates the time you’ll spend on each tack, taking into account wind and tidal effects. This gives you an accurate ETA at your destination.
Be on the line as the gun goes with RacePanel. Such important regatta functions only pro navigators have enjoyed, until now. With time, distance and position data, the B&G RacePanel helps you get off to a perfect start in the regatta, all on a single display.

Simple integration into existing systems
Already have a chartplotter on board? Regardless of whether you use Raymarine, Simrad or Garmin devices, the B&G Zeus3's NMEA2000 interface makes it extremely easy to integrate seamlessly into existing systems.
The B&G Zeus3 is the perfect addition to your current setup. Use the B&G Zeus3 as a control unit for your Simrad, Lowrance or B&G autopilot.
Take advantage of the wide range of possible applications, which are made possible by integrated NMEA2000 interface as well as the space-saving installation dimensions.
System example - Autopilot control unit
The B&G Zeus3 makes a perfect control unit for your Simrad, Lowrance or B&G autopilot. Use the full operating possibilities of an autopilot display in combination with the navigation capabilities of a similarly fully functional chart plotter. With the B&G Zeus3 you will have a powerful combination.
Latest radar technology
The B&G Zeus3 series is compatible with the latest VelocityTrack™ Doppler radar technology of the HALO20+ and HALO24 radar antennas. Take advantage of colour-coded echoes to quickly identify incoming and outgoing targets. You can of course use conventional HALO20 and 3G and 4G broadband radar antennas with the B&G Zeus3.
HALO radar antennas are connected via the ethernet port of the B&G Zeus3.
Know what's in front of you!
In combination with the optional Navico ForwardScan® transducer, the B&G Zeus3 provides a 2D sonar image of the seabed in front of your boat. In shallow, unknown or poorly mapped waters, the ForwardScan® function helps you avoid running aground. It is also a very useful tool in the search for a safe anchorage.
