B&G has added sailing-specific Sailsteer and
Sailtime features to the Zeus touch-screen
multi-function display (available in seven-,
eight-, and 12-inch versions). SailSteer is a
pre-fab sailing screen arrangement that gives
prominent display of nav functions important
to boaters who depend on the breeze, while
SailTime brings up a view of tacking angles
without the need for an active waypoint.
LOWRANCE adds to your communications options with the
Link- 2, a handheld DSC VHF radio with a built-in GPS. This unit will
come in handy for those who hit the water with a buddy-boat; the
“Get Buddy” and “Track Your Buddy” features use position poling
to display your friend’s position on-screen and share nav data. $199.
