Seeking advice on Garmin setup with XM weather radar
 
26 Pursuit CC typically fishing up to 30 plus miles offshore Port Canaveral FL boat has a Furuno Navnet 10" screen with no radar, but think I am leaning towards adding a Garmin device with XM Weather. What is the best bang for the buck for making this happen. Boat also has a Clarion CMD 7 receiver is is possible to share the signal for the XM radio?

Thanks..

I have a GXM31 satellite antenna plugged into a 545S GPS with the "Mariner Package" from Garmin. The XM signal has 2 RCA type outputs that go into the aux input of my receiver and the wether radar/alerts are fed into the 545. The XM is controlled through the 545 also, works great for me. I purchased them about 6 years ago.

I've used them all Garmin 376 GXM 30, 545 with GXM 31, 740 GXM 51, and now a 547 with the same GXM 51 I used on the 740. As alacrity said .... I wouldn't leave the dock without. XM Weather has saved. save my backside numerous time.



GPSMap 376c GXM 30 still running strong and in my ditch bag.
