Navico, the parent company of Lowrance, Simrad, B&G and C-Map, has launched the WM-4 Marine Satellite Receiver for SiriusXM weather and audio.
The WM-4 replaces the company’s WM-3 Marine Satellite Receiver. It delivers weather and fishing information to Lowrance HDS Live and HDS Carbon, Simrad NSS evo3 and NSO evo3, and B&G Zeus3 and Zeus3 Glass Helm systems.
With the WM-4 and a subscription to SiriusXM Marine Satellite Weather or Fish Mapping, boaters can view weather and fishing data on top of a chart on compatible multifunction displays. The WM-4 offers access to more than 140 SiriusXM radio channels at a discount, when an audio subscription is added to a weather subscription.
The new module requires one of four subscription packages: inland, coastal, offshore or fish mapping.
“We are thrilled to partner with SiriusXM to add powerful functionality to our line of multifunction displays,” Knut Frostad, president and CEO of Navico, stated in a press release. “Whether you are embarking on a long sailing passage or entered in a high-stakes fishing tournament, the WM-4 Satellite Weather Receiver provides the information you need.”
