FURUNO Network Sirius Satellite Weather – BBWX1
Network Sirius Satellite Weather
Keeping track of weather is easier than ever with Furuno’s BBWX1 for NavNet vx2! Furuno and Sirius have teamed up to bring you live, up-to-date weather information and forecasting to give you peace of mind, no matter when or how you are using your boat. The weather information is obtained from the weather industry’s leading experts and is delivered via digital receiver through Sirius’ Marine Weather services. This receiver will simply plug into your existing NavNet vx2 network, requiring only a software update to the NavNet vx2 displays to allow them to access the BBWX1.
You have the ability to receive high-quality and comprehensive weather information and forecasting that you can overlay onto your C-Map MAX charts. You will be provided with premium weather content, such as current weather reports, NOWRad® nationwide high resolution weather radar imagery and high-resolution Sea Surface Temperature images that can help fishermen locate hot spots. The information will be overlayed onto your C-Map MAX chart, allowing you to see the weather cells in relation to your geographic location.
The BBWX1 is designed to work with any 7″, 10.4″ or Black Box NavNet vx2 running C-Map MAX cartography. When you combine this SIRIUS Marine Weather with Furuno’s TRUE color Radar on the NavNet vx2, you are able to not only forecast the weather, but also track it in real time. With the TRUE color Radar, you will also be able to determine the strongest part of the storm and navigate around it. For the ultimate weather experience, you can also add Furuno’s new PB100 Ultrasonic Weather Station to display real-time conditions outside your vessel.
