XM WX Satellite Weather

Heads Up has worked with leading avionics manufacturers to offer integrated XM WX solutions that set new standards in onboard situational awareness. XM WX data is transmitted directly to you over the same satellites that broadcast XM Satellite Radio. This network provides redundancy and superior transmission. In addition, its S-band wavelength is impervious to inclement weather, so you can count on constant weather updates when you need them most, across the continental US, Canada and their coastal waters. An affordable monthly subscription provides access to highly specific onboard weather, including:

  • High resolution NEXRAD radar
  • Storm cell attributes (SCITS)
  • Wind speed and direction at altitude
  • Graphical echo tops
  • METARs and TAFs
  • Fronts
  • Icing
  • Turbulence
  • TFRs
  • And more

Better still, this service is as cost-effective as it is comprehensive. EFB and laptop users can enjoy quick access to all of the weather products transmitted by XM. With Heads Up, you can even provide weather data for simultaneous pilot and co-pilot operation with a single receiver.
