Yes the Sirius weather package. I got the LWX-1 module on sale last spring and with a $50 rebate. Sirius mariner package is $34.15 per month and you can suspend service for up to 6 months without paying another $25 activation fee.

Do I think it is a good buy? It is expensive, and it depends on how much you need weather coverage. This is my first year with it the jury is still out. The HDS loads these satellite overlays like dial-up internet and you have to be patient. This could prove to be very frustrating I would think if caught in a storm.

The weather overlays do load slowly, however the alarm features are nice. I set it so any strom or lightning withing 50 miles and it alerts me. Then I can see the most current overlay and make a choice.
