Raymarine brings Sirius music, weather to boaters

Raymarine SR50 Sirius

Raymarine has bolstered its existing marine satellite gear by releasing the SR50 SIRIUS for its C-series line of boat navigation displays. Unlike last year's SR100, the SR50 can be used for both leisure and weather detection. All 130-plus Sirius satellite radio stations are accessible, says the marine navigation firm. Even so, every feature of Sirius Weather is still available, including WSI NOWRad radar and sea conditions. Information can either fill the screen or appear in a picture-in-picture window alongside the ship's essential information.

The SR50 will be available in the US this April and will cover almost all of North America. No price has been set, but the device should fall significantly below the $1,455 base price of the C-series navigator. [via OrbitCast]
