The SR50 SIRIUS Satellite Weather and Audio Receiver from Raymarine gives mariners access to a wide range of advanced weather forecast information from SIRIUS Satellite Radio.
The satellite weather service was introduced last year for Raymarine’s line of E-Series of displays and is now available to C-Series and E-Series lines of multifunction displays. The receiver will give you access to WSI NOWRad weather radar, storm tracks, sea surface temperature, wind, surface pressure, wave heights, lightning and much more.
Captains can view SIRIUS weather forecasts in a full screen or in a window alongside radar, chartplotter and fishfinder functions. In addition to weather you can access over 130 channels of SIRIUS Satellite Radio directly from your C-Series display and connect the SR50 to onboard stereo systems.
The service will be available in the continental U.S. starting in April 2007. With the recent merger of SIRIUS and XM satellite radio maybe soon you will be able to access XM satellite radio too.
