aboard a powerboat and a sailboat, but obviously, not at the same time. We'd like to add marine weather
to our Garmin
instruments, but don't want to buy two receivers and pay for two subscriptions.
It would be more wiring
and time than I feel comfortable with to set up for the receiver and install antenna
mounts on both to switch antennas from boat
. We are also in a dead zone for marine
services, but do cruise
to places that have competent boat yards and marine electronics
I plan to purchase
the least expensive multi-function display with internal GPS antenna
that will work
with XM marine weather
. Then build a cabinet for a small display and add XM sirius antenna. The objective is a portable unit that only needs to plug
in to a 12v cigarette lighter socket to be operational.
Anybody done this or have another approach?
(Presently looking at a WM-3 and Simard GO7 XSR. Still cheaper than two XM receivers and the wiring
a bus to plug
in a GMX-53.)
