A bright, multi-touch screen with an easy-to-use menu struc­ture makes setting courses, read­ing wind speed and di­rec­tion, depth, bear­ings and a host of other sail­ing func­tions sim­ple to ac­cess and un­der­stand. All Vul­cans in­clude Sail­steer and Sail­ing­time, which com­bine es­sen­tial data into one clear and in­for­ma­tive screen, as well as Sail­steer chart over­lay, which fur­ther en­hances sit­u­a­tional aware­ness of lay­lines and wind shifts. Sailors can also un­lock a host of other fea­tures, in­clud­ing Pre­dictwind weather forecast and route plan­ning. In ad­di­tion, for the club racer, the Vul­can fea­tures Start­line, count­down timer, and a race course build­ing tool.
