XM Weather to Sport SX

Post by john54724 »

I have a Garmin 496 providing external GPS data to my Sport SX. I am thinking of adding XM weather and music via the 496. Q: Will the existing connection between the 496 and my EFIS supply wx data to the GRT Sport? Q2: If not, how is that data transferred from the 496 to the Sport?

Thank you!!

It is not possible to transfer XM Weather data from the 496 to the Sport or any non-Garmin EFIS. The only way to get XM Weather data into a Sport is via a serial connection to our GRT WX Weather Processor, with a USB connection from that processor box to the receiver.
