Furuno’s new BBWX3 SiriusXM Marine Weather Receiver utilizes SiriusXM’s subscription based marine weather service for live, up-to-date weather forecast information.
The BBWX3 connects to the NavNet 3D, TZtouch or TZtouch2 network with an Ethernet cable. Once connected, and the SiriusXM subscription is activated, the user can view weather content on the NavNet screen, including current weather reports, NOWRad Radar images; high-res Sea Surface Temperatures, marine forecasts; storm tracking; buoy reports; wave height forecasts and more. On NavNet 3D, this information is overlaid directly onto charts, with NavNet TZtouch or TZtouch2, the user will see this information on the dedicated weather display. For existing NavNet 3D or TZtouch systems already in the field, a software update is required to access the BBWX3 features.
