Raymarine Sirius Weather

Sirius has announced that it will produce the SR100, a satellite radio adapter for sea navigation maker Raymarine's E-series boat mapping displays (pictured). Sirius has adapted the mapping service it normally provides for drivers to water-based travel, exchanging the former's road condition monitoring for naval weather updates. The SR100 provides boat pilots with real-time weather radar that also warns of storms and potentially deadly lightning hotspots; the unit also keeps track of more complex data like sea temperature and wave height to help smaller ships navigate, Raymarine says. Sirius plans to formally debut the SR100 at CES in January for $1,000 while the E-series is already available starting at $3,200.
