Default XM Weather Color Graphical SST Displays Are Here

I was playing around with my Garmin 545 tonight and stumbled onto to some new XM Weather functionality and displays that are embedded in the new chartplotters. These new features are a terrific addition to the existing ones that are standard in the previous Garmin XM capable CPer models. Here is a short video of two of the new displays. I will do some additional videos tomorrow. They listened to their current users for sure!

The 3210 won't show this only the new models 400/500/4000/5000 series have this capability.

BWP: Thats ok i would mainly be using it for the storm tracks and precipitation however I I am a little confused. I saw on one of your video clips of an approaching storm and heard the sleet in the background. The screen showed the storm bearing down on you which i assume was real time but i have read posts that say xm only updated every six hours which means u will always be looking at old info?? Thanks for all of your info!!!
