XM WX Satellite Weather and Cellular Weather
 Warning
The weather information provided through this product is subject to service interruptions and may contain errors,
inaccuracies, or outdated information, and consequently should not be relied upon exclusively. Always use common
sense while driving or navigating, and check alternate weather information sources prior to making safety-related
decisions. You acknowledge and agree that you shall be solely responsible for use of the weather information
and all decisions taken with respect to driving or navigating in weather. Garmin will not be responsible for any
consequences of using the weather data.
Cellular Weather
Cellular weather provides data through wireless service providers. An antenna, such as the Garmin GDL® 40,
communicates with nearby cellular towers to receive the weather data. The weather data for each feature comes
from reputable weather data centers such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
National Weather Service, Environment Canada, and Météo-France.
To view cellular weather, you must initially select an annual subscription service online at
http://my.garmin.com. You may purchase a day pass directly from the chartplotter. A day pass provides 24 hours of
continuous weather data. Refer to the antenna installation instructions or the instructions at http://my.garmin.com to
activate this service.
XM WX Satellite Weather
A Garmin XM satellite weather receiver and antenna receives XM WX Satellite Weather data and shows it on
various Garmin devices, including the Navigation chart on a chartplotter. The weather data for each feature comes
from reputable weather data centers such as the National Weather Service and the Hydrometeorological Prediction
Center. For more information, go to the XM WX Satellite Weather Web site at www.xmwxweather.com.
To view XM WX Satellite Weather information, you must have a subscription to XM WX Satellite Weather, and
you must have a Garmin XM satellite weather receiver connected to a chartplotter.

Weather Data Broadcasts
Satellite weather data is broadcast at set intervals. For example, XM weather radar data is broadcast at five-minute
intervals. Cellular weather data is broadcast at fifteen-minute intervals. When the Garmin receiver is turned on, or
when a different weather feature is selected, the receiver has to receive new data before it can be shown. You might
experience a delay before weather data or a different feature appears on the chart.
Note: Any weather feature can change in appearance if the source that provides the information changes.
When you purchase cellular weather data or when the chartplotter automatically requests a cellular weather update,
the current boat position is transmitted, and your chartplotter then receives weather data for your area, centered
around your current location.
Status Messages
When viewing a weather chart, a status message, such as one of the following, may be displayed in the upper-left
corner.
• Buy WX—you must purchase a day pass or a subscription to view weather data (page 1).
• Register—you must register your cellular antenna before you can purchase and view cellular weather data
(page 1). If you see this message after registering your antenna, shut down your system and then turn it back on.
Viewing Precipitation Information
Precipitation ranging from very light rain and snow, up to strong thunderstorms, is indicated in varying shades and
colors. Precipitation is shown either independently or with other weather information.
From the Home screen, select Weather > Precipitation.
The time stamp in the upper-left corner of the screen indicates the elapsed time since the weather data provider
last updated the information.
Showing an Animated Radar Loop
You can view precipitation information as an image of the latest update or as an animated loop of the latest updates.
From the Home screen, select Weather > Precipitation > Menu > Radar Loop > On.
The time stamp in the upper-left corner of the screen indicates the elapsed time since the service provider
generated the weather radar frame currently displayed on the screen.
Showing Cloud Cover
Cloud cover can be shown or hidden. XM weather data provides the height of the cloud tops.
Cellular weather displays clouds based on cloud-top temperatures as detected by infrared satellites. Deeper shades
of gray represent colder clouds often found with cirrus or thunderstorm clouds. Lighter shades or lack of shading
indicate warmer clouds usually associated with stratus or fog.
From the Home screen, select Weather > Precipitation > Menu > Cloud Cover > Show.

Each line represents 15 minutes.
Lightning strikes are represented by lightning bolt icons ➌. Lightning appears on the weather Precipitation chart if
strikes were detected within the last seven minutes. The ground-based lightning detection network detects cloud-toground lightning only.
Hurricane Information
The weather Precipitation chart can show the present position of a hurricane ➊, a tropical storm, or a tropical
depression. A red line stemming from a hurricane icon indicates the projected path ➋ of the hurricane. Darkened
dots on the red line indicate the projected locations through which the hurricane will pass, as received from the
weather data provider.

of precipitation. Isobars packed closely together show a strong pressure gradient. Strong pressure gradients are
associated with areas of stronger winds.
