Default Help? Installing Bbwx2 Weather and exsisting stereo

Quite confused here. The boat is brand new and had questions.

Installing a Furuno touch with weather. Is there a benefit to connecting the weather module with a patch cord to the stereo that was installed by the builder that already has Sirius?

Does that stereo really already have a Sirius Radio receiver, or is it merely "Sirius Ready"?

If the former, it's only a matter of for which receiver you want to buy a radio subscription (which is separate from your WX-data subscription). Depending on the control interface, you might find it more convenient than going through your Furuno system; or not.

If the latter, then I would not worry about it; just feed the audio from the BBWX2 into an AUX input on the stereo, and be done with it.
