Gxm 30.

Ok.. I know someone's used this product... it's an XM / Weather antenna for use on GPSmap 478.

It looks like the cost for the XM and weather is about $19 a month after a $15 activation fee opportunity.

Re: Gxm 30.

Dave.. thanks for replying...
Yes.. I have some specific questions...

1- I've seen references to "responder" on the "highway" page on the XM page.. Do you need a "responder" or is that only for tracking vehicles....
2- Is this "antenna" actually around $200?
3- If I have the "antenna", how long is the cable?
4- How long does it take to start getting "weather" updates on the screen?
5- Have you found the WX data to be more useful and "timely" for motorcycling?

Hopefully those are all the ones I'm interested in getting answered at this time...

Re: Gxm 30.

While I do use XM on all my bikes, I don't use my Garmin for XM. As Dave said the weather is on the marine units is great. The weather on the StreetPilot series - not so much. The weather package I have for my 478 is $25 per month.

I have about 3 extra GXM 30 antennas, if you are interested send me a PM.
