Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. has announced the GPSMAP 376C — a portable GPS navigator that can display graphical XM WX Satellite Weather data directly on the unit’s display. The GPSMAP 376C can overlay vital weather data directly on the display — information like NEXRAD radar, storm cells, wind speeds, surface temperatures, forecasts, and more than a dozen other weather attributes. The weather data is the same leading site-specific, analytical weather technology and data that is provided to professional meteorologists across the United States.
In addition, mariners and motorists will have the option of receiving XM Satellite Radio’s 150-plus channels of commercial-free music, sports, news, talk, and entertainment programming. The GPSMAP 376C includes an audio output jack that allows users to wire XM audio and turn-by-turn navigational voice prompts directly into their vehicle’s audio system. XM Satellite data and audio is delivered to the GPSMAP 376C through Garmin’s new GXM(TM) 30 smart antenna, which is included with the 376C package. The GXM 30, roughly three inches in diameter, processes all weather information and sends the finished data to the GPSMAP 376C for display.
