NOTE: SiriusXM has discontinued the SXAR1. However, the Pilot for ForeFlight subscription plan from SiriusXM is still available, and can be used with Garmin's GDL 51 and GDL 52 portable receivers to access inflight XM weather in ForeFlight.

SiriusXM Weather & GPS

The compact SXAR1 receiver connects to your iPad or iPhone via Bluetooth to provide US and Canadian radar, lightning strike location, METARs, TAFs, AIR/SIGMETs, Cloud Tops, Echo Tops, Surface Wind, TFRs, GPS data and more to the ForeFlight Mobile app.

Portable & Wireless

The SXAR1 is rechargeable, which eliminates the need for wires inflight, and supports multiple legs of flying when fully charged. The receiver’s small size makes it easy to mount on the glare shield, or anywhere else that provides a line-of-sight view for its built-in antennas to receive SiriusXM satellite and GPS signals.
