Excellent product, Excellent Customer Experience
GXM42 ordered for my plane to work with Garmin 796 (replacement for old GXM40); delivered in 2 days as requested, and in pristine condition. Easy to install and activate. Highly recommended. Compliments to Sportys Pilot Shop for the customer service.

Standard Garmin reliability
I just like XM weather better than ADS-B. I'm used to it. It's always been reliable and is available on the ground which is important to me as I fly into some remote places with no cell service available that would allow me to connect to the internet. This receiver is expensive but I was able to purchase and get a $300 rebate. It couldn't be any easier to use (just like my old XM weather receiver) and the new weather subscription saves me about $20/month with very similar service. Good product. If you, like me, are sure you want to user XM weather instead of the free ADS-B for the next few years, the purchase will pay for itself in subscription savings over a 30 month period.
