XM WX offers the most comprehensive suite of accurate graphical weather data, combined with the most reliable satellite delivery method.
Dependable Satellite Delivery
XM’s satellite network consists of multiple identical satellites in geostationary orbit around the earth, each continuously transmitting weather data to subscribers below.
The unique S-Band signal transmitted by each satellite ensures that even very intense storm systems don’t impede the signal. In addition to the XM network’s redundant design, the XM WX service provides enhanced reliability that keeps it available when it is most needed.
The WxWorx Connection
Built on a heritage of weather tracking excellence, a company called WxWorx serves as the data provider for XM WX Satellite Weather. Once WxWorx has collected weather data from a variety of sources, including the Department of Defense, National Weather Service and various commercial providers, it interprets, verifies and packages the data for instantaneous distribution over the XM satellite network.
