GARMIN GDL 30 Marine Weather Satellite Receiver (Network Device)
GARMIN GDL 30A Marine Weather/Audio Satellite Receiver (Network Device)

satellite weatherWith the addition of the GDL30/30A weather data receiver and a partnership with XM WX Satellite Weather, Garmin brings real-time graphical weather data coverage of the United States* (except Alaska and Hawaii) directly to Garmin marine chartplotters.

GDL 30 for XM Satellite Weather
Mariners can now access real-time weather information for the United States* directly on the GPSMAP 3005C, GPSMAP 3006C, GPSMAP 3010C, GPSMAP 3205, GPSMAP 3206 or GPSMAP 3210 using the GDL 30 - no need for a separate PC interface. The Garmin GDL 30 black box receiver is completely waterproof and part of the new Garmin Marine Network, a plug-and-play system that puts GPS, weather, sonar, radar and other important data literally at a boater's fingertips.

United States weather information* captured and processed by the GDL 30 and GA 31 pole-mount antenna is directly overlaid onto the GPSMAP 3005C, GPSMAP 3006C or GPSMAP 3010C multifunction, color displays. Users can overlay individual or combined weather data screens, so they can see weather conditions at their current location or along a projected path. The GDL 30 and XM WX Satellite Weather service work to keep boaters continually informed of changing weather patterns, so they can make better-informed decisions and spend more time enjoying the water. XM WX Satellite Weather is the same leading, analytical weather technology and data that is provided to television meteorologists across the United States. It relays a continuous transmission of 20 different types of graphical weather information that can be overlaid on the chartplotter, including:

• Current conditions • Visibility forecast
• City forecasts • Wind speed
NEXRAD Radar with precipitation type
(animated, high resolution)
Sea surface temperature
Surface air pressure Wind direction
• Surface analysis (Highs, Lows and fronts) Wave period
Lightning Wave direction
Storm cell size, speed and direction Wave height
• Hurricane track • Buoy data
