From their website

How do I activate my service?

After your receiver is installed, connected to your display product and powered up, you or your dealer can dial 1-800-869-5480 to activate the service. To activate be prepared with your billing information, subscription preferences and the SIRIUS ID# for your receiver. In mere minutes after your customer service representative enters the information your service will be activated. The SIRIUS ID# of your receiver will be accessible via the user interface on your weather viewer display.

Elusive,

Thanks for the timely info. Do you have this service, and if so how do you like it?
I just installed the Raymarine unit and connected it to their network switch and
E-120. After powering up, the plotter displays a Sirius dialog box that must be
acknowledged before proceeding. So I supose the thing will work with service.
This sound right to you?

Thanks, Ken

No I don't have it yet. Rumor has it that RM will be making a modification to allow the C Series to be compatible with the Weather module. if so, that is my easiest way to get it. If not, I'll likely add a small Garmin unit.

It sounds like you are on the right path

Elusive, that is correct information, RM is about to release the Sirius Weather for the C-series. It will also have the ability to connect to your Sirius ready AM/FM radio.

Red Neck 25

You will get the Sirius Weather disclaimer box every time you power up the E120. Sounds like you are all set to activate it.

The A65 is not compatible with the weather receiver
