WEATHER in the palm of your hand.
XM Weather Kit
Real Time Weather on the APIC moving map is available using XM WX Satellite Weather information. APIC allows
the user to populate or depopulate the moving map with detailed weather information. This includes TAF, Metars,
Radar, Satellite, Winds Aloft, Lightning Strikes, Airmets, Sigmets, and TFR information. APIC Weather capability
is included in APIC - no additional charge! To integrate this data into the APIC software a WxWorx Receiver Kit
must be purchased along with a XM WX Satellite Weather Subscription.
[XM's satellites simultaneously transmit all data, optimizing signal availability to mobile users. XM's transmission in the S-band
remains strong ever in poor weather conditions.]
With APIC NO additional software is required to receive weather data!!
