INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
• If a radar is present, the antenna should be mounted above
the path of the radar . If necessary, the antenna may be
mounted below the path of the radar .
Important Safety Information
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outdated information, and consequently should not be relied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 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 navigating in weather.
Garmin will not be responsible for any consequences of using
SiriusXM weather information.
When connecting the power cable, do not remove the in-line
fuse holder. To prevent the possibility of injury or product
damage caused by fire or overheating, the appropriate fuse
must be in place as indicated in the product specifications. In
addition, connecting the power cable without the appropriate
fuse in place voids the product warranty.
• The antenna should not be mounted directly in the path of the
radar .
• The antenna should be mounted at least 1 m (3 ft.) away
from (preferably above) the path of a radar beam or a VHF
radio antenna .

CAUTION
Always wear safety goggles, ear protection, and a dust mask
when drilling, cutting, or sanding.
NOTICE
When drilling or cutting, always check what is on the opposite
side of the surface.
Software Update
You must update the Garmin chartplotter software when you
install this device.
If your chartplotter has Wi‑Fi technology, you should update the
software using the ActiveCaptain™ app on a compatible
Android™ or Apple device. If your chartplotter does not have
Wi‑Fi technology, you should update the software using a
memory card and a Windows computer.
For more information, go to support.garmin.com.

Testing the Mounting Location
1 Temporarily secure the antenna in the preferred mounting
location and test it for correct operation.
2 If you experience interference with other electronics, move
the antenna to a different location, and test it again.
3 Repeat steps 1–2 until you observe full or acceptable signal
strength.
4 Permanently mount the antenna.
Surface Mounting the Antenna
®
Antenna Mounting Considerations
You can mount the antenna on a flat surface or attach it to a
standard 1 in. OD, 14 threads per inch, pipe-threaded pole (not
included). You can route the cable outside of the pole or through
the pole. For best performance, consider these guidelines when
selecting the antenna mounting location.
• To ensure the best reception, the antenna should be
mounted in a location that has a clear, unobstructed view of
the sky in all directions .
NOTICE
If you are mounting the bracket on fiberglass with screws, it is
recommended to use a countersink bit to drill a clearance
counterbore through only the top gel-coat layer. This will help to
avoid cracking in the gel-coat layer when the screws are
tightened.
Before you permanently mount the antenna, you must test the
mounting location for correct operation (Antenna Mounting
Considerations, page 1).
1 Using the surface-mount bracket as your mounting
template, mark the three pilot-hole locations and trace the
cable-hole in the center of the bracket.
• The antenna should not be mounted where it is shaded by
the superstructure of the boat , a radome antenna, or the
mast.
• The antenna should not be mounted near the engine or other
sources of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) .

Mounting the Antenna with the Cable Routed Outside
the Pole
Before you permanently mount the antenna, you must test the
mounting location for correct operation (Antenna Mounting
Considerations, page 1).
1 Route the cable through the pole-mount adapter , and
place the cable in the vertical slot
along the base of the
pole-mount adapter.
2 Set the surface-mount bracket aside.

Do not drill through the bracket.
Drill the three 3.2 mm (1/8 in.) pilot holes.
Drill the 19 mm (3/4 in.) cable hole in the center.
Use the included M4 screws to secure the surface-mount
bracket to the mounting surface.
Route the cable
through the center hole and connect it to
the antenna.
Verify the large gasket
is in place on the bottom of the
antenna, place the antenna on the surface-mount bracket,
and twist it clockwise to lock it in place.
Secure the antenna to the mounting bracket with the included
M3 screw .
Route the cable away from sources of electronic interference.

Mounting the Antenna with the Cable Routed Through
the Pole
Before you permanently mount the antenna, you must test the
mounting location for correct operation (Antenna Mounting
Considerations, page 1).
1 Position a standard 1 in. OD, 14 threads per inch, pipethreaded pole (not included) in the selected location, and
mark the approximate center of the pole.
2 Drill a hole using a 19 mm (3/4 in.) drill bit for the cable to
pass through.
3 Fasten the pole to the boat.
4 Thread the pole-mount adapter onto the pole.
Do not overtighten the adapter.
5 Route the cable through the pole and connect it to the
antenna.

With the antenna installed on the pole mount, fill the
remaining gap in the vertical cable slot with a marine sealant

Attach the pole to the boat if it is not already attached.
Route the cable away from sources of electronic interference.
Connection Considerations
NOTICE
If you are connecting the audio cable from the wiring harness,
you must connect it to the line-in or auxiliary port on a stereo.
Attempting to connect the audio cable directly to a speaker will
result in poor performance, and it may cause the antenna to
shut down, which might damage the antenna or the speaker.
You must connect this antenna to power and to the Garmin
Marine Network to provide weather information to connected,
compatible Garmin devices.
