WxWorx, a division of Baron Services, has redesigned its data receiver for the XM WX Satellite Weather service.
The new Weather Data Receiver is used to supply graphical weather data to such devices as PCs, MFDs, smart phones and tablets.
Some of the receiver’s features include:
- Flexible connectivity: with receiver model WR-10, either a USB, Ethernet or Serial (RS-232) connection is available. The WR-10BT model adds wireless Bluetooth functionality, along with any one of the three wired options.
- Integrated WAAS-enabled GPS receiver: with compatible software applications, you can overlay your position on the map. For added convenience, a GPS antenna is included with the Weather Data Receiver. Support for the integrated GPS receiver will be enabled through WxWorx on Wings and partner software updates available later this year.
- XM Satellite Radio compatibility: get both graphical weather data and XM audio programming using the same antenna. Separate subscriptions are required for weather and audio programming, company officials note.
The new Weather Data Receiver is available at WxWorx.com, and will be available soon at participating dealers.
