Sirius XM Experiencing Turbulence

I saw this article yesterday and the first thing I thought about was “what about all the GA pilots out there?!?”

XM Weather is a product provided by XM that allows you to stream weather data to various avionics as well as computers used on marine ships.

The scope of the bankrupcy is only for the American arm of the company. However XM Weather is not “officially” supported in Canada. So this means that if the American company goes belly-up, XM Weather may never be available.

Garmin may have to find another WX provider.
