Default Garmin Weather Coverage

Why does the weather coverage on the Garmin Bluechart Mobile app go all the way to the Abacos and the XM weather coverage on the Garmin chart plotters only covers as far as Mangrove Cay on the North side of Grand Bahama. It doesn't make any sense to me.

My guess is that they have two totally different sources for weather.

I wonder if the GDL40 (which is Cell based Weather) has different coverage from the GXM51 which is XM based weather?
