    Anybody using the XM to GPS weather radar interface?

    Just curious if anyone is using this tech yet.

    I'm told that XM has a weather radar service, and you can display the radar on your "better" GPS.
    I'm wondering if my Garmin 182C will do it. Living on the west end of lake erie, that would be dam handy.

    Thanks!!

    Link didn't work for me, but I'm on a big server right now.

    I was thinking there was an interface for connecting to an existing GPS.

    This sounds like a proprietary system.

    Re: Anybody using the XM to GPS weather radar interface?

    I put accuweather on my cell phone last August with Verizon. It was a "Get it now" app and costs 2.99/mo. I just dropped it in October and will start it up again probably in May. It would be nice to be able to have it on the GPS screen, but the radar loop on the phone works pretty good for the cost.

    Re: Anybody using the XM to GPS weather radar interface?

    I saw an article somewhere like the BoatUS magazine.

    I'll have to find it. Sounds like this is really new tech.
    I saw a pic and it was full screen on a gps.
