February 13, 2008

XM WX Satellite Weather has been named the Official Weather Provider of the Miami International Boat Show and sponsor of the Internet Café. The XM WX Satellite Weather Internet Café will serve as a designated resource where visitors can view live weather conditions, catch up on e-mails or search the Web during show hours, February 14-18, 2008.

 

Located in the “D” lobby of the Miami Beach Convention Center, the XM WX Satellite Weather Internet Café will house eight computers and monitors for attendees and exhibitors to use free of charge. A representative from XM WX Satellite Weather will also be available to answer questions related to the cost, hardware, software and subscription needed to obtain XM WX Satellite Weather.

“If they are deep sea fishing or simply taking a joy ride, mariners need to be aware of their surroundings—especially when it comes to the weather,” said Roderick Mackenzie, vice president, advanced applications for XM Satellite Radio. “Our partnership with the Miami International Boat Show is evidence of our commitment to provide mariners with
the best weather on the water.”

In order to receive and display the XM WX data, boaters must have a subscription to the XM WX service, as well as an XM WX capable receiver, antenna and display device. The XM WX Satellite Weather system was designed to be flexible, allowing mariners the option of a wide range of hardware solutions including chartplotters or portable devices, such as laptop PC’s or Multi-Function Displays (MFDs). XM WX, the clearest decision in any weather, will be on display at booth 1691 in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

XM WX is privileged to be the Official Weather Provider for the World Billfish Series, Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Sun N’ Fun Fly-in, EAA Airventure and has also been selected as the 2007 National Storm Chasers’ Product of the Year.
