The 2020 mandate does not require that you use ADS-B weather. You are free to choose SiriusXM weather, ADS-B weather, or both!
Choose SiriusXM for Composite Radar and Cloud-to-Cloud/Cloud-to-Ground Lightning data updating every 2.5 minutes—that's 2x faster than ADS-B's 5 minute update rate.
Plus, it provides Storm Tracks showing the top, speed, and direction of the storm, helping you safely maneuver around dangerous weather.
Check out this infographic that breaks down the differences between SiriusXM and ADS-B weather at each stage of flight to help you decide which service is right for you.VISIT SIRIUSXM AVIATION
