Default garmin 3010c with weather reciever info needed

Guys if you get this unit with ONLY weather reciever info do you still need a subscription or is it only with the radio and weather combo that needs the subscription for the monthly fee? I want a big 10 inch screen so if I would have to get the subscription just for the weather part then I guess I would just end up getting the 2010 C instead. I only really need the Gps part of this but the weather reciever to keep me updated sounds like a neat feature to keep me up on those reather anoying summer thunder boomers that we all get caught out on the water from time to time. Thanks

Let me clear this up fpr you. The XM WX Weather is ONLY avialable with the Garmin 3005, 3006 and 3010C. There are 2 weather recievers, GDL-30 and 30A. The 30A includes the XM radio function. There are 3 weather packages and 1 XM radio package. If you need more info please visit http://www.swflnavigation.com/776394.html or email me..

Mike, I understand that the XM weather is available for the 3010C as that is the one I am looking at. But my question that for some reason I just am not understanding is If I get the 3010C and want the Weather XM with the GDL-30 do I need to have to pay for monthly charges for the weather info or NOT. I DO NOT WANT the RADIO at all JUST WEATHER. So will I have to pay for a monthly fee for just weather. IF you say yes then I will just focus on the 2010C and be done with it all. I realy just need a great GPS but the weather feature sounds nice but not for a monthly charge.

Thanks
BRIAN

The XM service is a PAY service.. $29 for the basic package and $49 for the master plan. The 2010C is a great unit but will NOT work with future products and services. Check both 3010C and the 2010C before making your decsion.

Mike thanks for that info. All I really need is a great GPS I was just curious about the weather aspect to it. But if its a pay service then I can do without. I am only using this on a bay boat so I wont be more than 10-15 miles off shore at the most. Thanks again

Yes. You will get the Nexrad and a couple features for 29.00. The Master Mariner 49.00 package includes wave height, period, sea temps etc etc.

Lud, the basic Fisherman Package includes wave height and temps.. the sailor package doesn't. If you want to know what each package includes goto http://www.swflnavigation.com/776394.html and you'll find the info you need. There is NO contract so if you dont fish in the winter you can turn it off.
