Furuno teams up with SiriusXM on NavNet receiver

ADVERTISEMENT

Furuno’s new BBWX4 fourth-generation Sirius XM Marine Weather Receiver provides live, up-to-date weather information and forecasting across the U.S. and southern Canada, and, when added to a NavNet TZtouch or TZtouch2 network, the BBWX4 enables viewing of real-time weather content that overlays on the NavNet plotter’s raster or vector charts, according to the Washington-based company.

Current weather reports, five-day forecasts, NOWRad nationwide high-resolution weather radar imagery, storm tracking and lightning strikes, buoy reports, wave height forecasts and more are available via a SiriusXM Marine Weather subscription. Also, commercial-free music, live sportscasts, news and exclusive entertainment – available when a SiriusXM Radio is added to a marine weather subscription – can be accessed and controlled on any NavNet TZtouch2 MFD that’s connected to the new BBWX4.

SiriusXM offers a variety of marine weather subscription packages, including Inland, Coastal and Offshore. New subscribers who buy a BBWX4 and activate a SiriusXM subscription by Dec. 31 are eligible for a $100 SiriusXM Rewards Visa Prepaid Card, Furuno stated in a press release.
