On-Demand Weather Data
The Garmin GDL 40 Cellular Weather Receiver allows you to display weather radar and detailed real-time weather data on a compatible NMEA 2000 Garmin chartplotter at a reasonable cost. The system uses cellular technology to download weather data from Garmin subsidiary Digital Cyclone, which provides coverage for Canada, the United States and Europe. Users can subscribe to the network annually, or “buy” weather information on a day-by-day basis to keep a lid on costs. Just click the “Buy Weather” option on your chartplotter to begin downloading data. A waterproof low-profile antenna ensures clear signal reception.
