Furuno and SIRIUS are working together to provide satellite weather information on the award winning NavNet vx2 line of multifunction navigation units. Furuno will be releasing the BBWX1 SIRIUS Weather Receiver in late spring. This receiver will plug into your existing NavNet vx2 network, requiring only a software update to the NavNet vx2 displays to allow them to access the BBWX1.
The combination of NavNet vx2 and the BBWX1 will bring you live, up-to-date weather information and forecasting. The information will be overlayed onto your C-Map MAX chart, allowing you to see the weather cells in relation to your geographic location. A monthly SIRIUS Marine Weather subscription is required.
