Question XM Weather

Just curious if some of you captains think this is worth having on board. I will be running HD Radar with my Garmin 4208, and have enought safety equipment for two boats on my rig. Trips will average 80-100 miles out with the occasional overnighter in ice cream conditions.

I hear more cons than pros about using XM weather, overlayed on combo plotters/independent screens. Trying to decide if it's worth the extra cost to have it installed/monthly cost to use it a dozen times a year.

Thanks for any advice/input.
