Equipped with TripIntel™ technology, the VULCAN 9FS empowers power boaters with vital information for planning safe and enjoyable days on the water. This functionality incorporates the representation of fuel range on charts, convenient availability of current and upcoming tide levels, and a comprehensive record of past journeys, encompassing the route followed and performance measurements of your vessel.
Streamlining the navigation process, the VULCAN 9FS offers automatic routing functionality, akin to in-car navigation systems. By selecting a destination, the display suggests the shortest and safest route, considering the draught and dimensions of your vessel. Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts provide access to Navionics Autorouting, while Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts offer Jeppesen Easy Routing, allowing users to take advantage of this convenient functionality.
With its built-in 10 Hz GPS receiver, the VULCAN 9FS ensures accurate and real-time position tracking, making it ideal for fast-moving RIBs and powerboats. The smooth and continuous movement tracking enhances the display's responsiveness, providing a seamless tracking experience. Please note that in metal-hulled vessels, an external GPS receiver, such as the B&G ZG100, may be required.
Designed specifically for power boating, the VULCAN 9FS includes a unique Cruise Charting view that consolidates crucial navigation data and charts into a single, easily readable display. You can customize the on-screen data items to prioritize the information most relevant to your cruising style and on-water activities.
The VULCAN 9FS has the ability to link with different NMEA 2000®-enabled devices on your boat, including outboard and inboard engines, fuel level and flow meters, speed, heading, and water temperature sensors, and more, thanks to its NMEA 2000® compatibility. This allows you to create customized digital instrument displays, bringing a wealth of information to your dash while maintaining a clean and uncluttered look.
Monitoring your depth is made simple with the built-in sonar capability of the VULCAN 9FS. By connecting a compatible sonar transducer, you can accurately track real-time depth information. The scrollable depth history view enables you to trace back your route and easily set waypoints for potential anchorages. Additionally, the StructureScan Imaging™ combines DownScan and SideScan sonar, providing a detailed view of the underwater environment.
Enhancing your confidence while navigating shallow or poorly-charted waters, the VULCAN 9FS supports the optional ForwardScan™ Sonar. ForwardScan™ is an innovative sonar technology that provides a distinct two-dimensional visual representation of the seafloor ahead of your boat. By continuously updating in real-time and offering a forward-facing perspective that extends up to eight times the depth you are currently in, ForwardScan™ facilitates safer navigation even in difficult and risky environments.
Designed to enhance your fishing experience, the VULCAN 9FS offers a range of built-in sonar technologies. By adding a suitable transducer, the display functions as a powerful fishfinder with CHIRP-enabled broadband sonar, ensuring clear detection of fish throughout the water column. The VULCAN 9FS offers the possibility of using either an HDI or TotalScan transducer, which enables the inclusion of StructureScan® HD sidescan imaging. This feature allows for a comprehensive visualization of the underwater structures where fish gather, providing a clear and detailed view underneath and around your boat.
For those who appreciate music on the water, the VULCAN 9FS seamlessly integrates with the Simrad SonicHub®2 marine audio system. By connecting via Bluetooth®, you can stream music from tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices. Alternatively, you can play MP3 files from a USB flash drive or enjoy the built-in AM/FM radio of the SonicHub®2. This integration eliminates the need for a separate stereo head unit, providing complete control of your audio entertainment directly from your VULCAN 9FS display.
