Garmin GXM52

Just bought a Garmin 740s Chart Plotter and would like to purchase GXM52 Weather/xm receiver antenna. Prices for new ones are beyond my reach so hoping someone might have a used one they would sell.

You know that's only for coastal service, right? You get about 50 miles offshore and its not going to get anything.

Re: Garmin GXM52

If I'm more than 50 miles off shore, I'm likely lost. LOL.

From WxWorx.

How far outside the continental US is the XM WX weather data available?

XM WX radar data is derived from the 145 ground-based sites in the U.S. NEXRAD network, which covers the contiguous United States, and up to approximately 150 miles outside the borders of the 48 continental states, depending on the actual location of the Doppler radar. The lightning data covers up to approximately 200 miles outside the borders of the 48 States. Other products, such as winds aloft, fronts, infrared satellite mosaic, sea temps and wave heights are generally viewable up to about 500-800 miles outside of the borders of the 48 continental states. Coverage is not available in or around Hawaii. This information should serve as a general guideline with the understanding that while the coverage may well exceed 500-800 miles in some cases, depending on antenna type and placement, we cannot provide specific coverage availability and details for locations outside of the borders of the 48 continental states other than what we have stated here.
