This issue can be corrected with a free software update.
XM Satellite Radio (XM) was one of the three satellite radio (SDARS) and online radio services in the United States and Canada, operated by Sirius XM Holdings.
XM services require an XM-capable receiver and antenna connected to a compatible device with an XM subscription.
We have identified an issue with reception of XM weather products for aviation and marine devices using a GXM 30, GXM 31, GXM 40 and GXM 51.
In addition, XM used to broadcast local weather and traffic conditions in its larger markets. To receive satellite radio programming, a customer was required to purchase a receiver. With a service commitment, it was possible to get a simple receiver for free.Many subscribers have complained about the low quality of satellite radio sound.Monthly packages started at US.49/month (changed since 2011 from US.95/month) with add-on "family" radios at US.99/month.Best-of-Sirius was available on US accounts for an additional monthly fee. Channel quality was in one of two flavors, stereo music channels at 39 kbit/s and mono talk channels at 16 kbit/s using proprietary compression.XM channels were identified by Arbitron with the label "XM" (e.g., "XM32" for "The Bridge").
The company had its origins in the 1988 formation of the American Mobile Satellite Corporation (AMSC), a consortium of several organizations originally dedicated to satellite broadcasting of telephone, fax, and data signals.
