XM Weather

I am considering adding XM Weather to our GPS. There are a few options from Sirius XM like SkyWatch, Fisherman, Sailor, and Master Mariner. Are any of you out there using this and if so are you happy with it?
Thanks

I have it and I like it (another tool in the toolbox) I don't remember the one I have but it has winds, Nexrad and sat with weather systems overlay. I really like the XM entertainment so I have several accounts (car, motorcycle, airplane and boat) so I was just adding another so cost was not too great considering.

I recommend you pipe the entertainment to your on-board system for the best of everything.

I give it a thumbs up.

Depends on the service package you want

The music only is just the same as another receiver, the data is the variable

From $10 to $50 per month


Data Service Pricing | Marine | XM WX Satellite Weather | SiriusXM


I have the Fisherman

Watch out for "Spoofing" you might end up in a Storm and not know it.

I don't know, but they don't have any exclusive (as far as I know) anyone building the receiver into their equipment should be able to offer this feature.

Anyone else have XM/Sirius in another brand of equip?
