My wife bought a Garmin 545 chartplotter for me this Christmas. I was impressed as she picked it out all by herself. This unit is capable of overlaying weather radar on the GPS chart.

Does any one have experience with the XM weather feature on the Garmin chartplotters? Didn't want to buy the extra antenna and subsciption to XM weather if it didn't work as advertised. Seems like this would be an excellent feature from a safety standpoint during the summer when thunderstorms are a possibility.

Any feedback (good or bad) would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

a friend of mine has it on his boat but the only thing he uses it for is to find places out of the wind to anchor up at night , all in all a pretty neat feature though. it will actually show which way the wind is blowing around the land masses with little arrows all over the screen
