With the new upgrade on Garmin's weather they have added a new feature that is really worthwhile. Today is a nasty day here in Suth Florida with fast moving Thunderstorms moving across the peninsula. I just fired up the Garmin [GPS Receiver and graphic chartplotter] and, after acquiring the XM-Satellite subscription weather broadcast signal, a huge Red bar and alarm goes off and says 'MARINE WEATHER WARNING" Going to the weather tab [on the display] shows a marine bulletin. Talk about the fast moving storm scheduled for the coast of Broward and Palm Beach counties thru 4:30 pm. Very cool.

Does the storm moving through look like it would on the Weather Channel radar?

light green - showers
dark green - heavier

It sounds like the GARMIN unit must deduce the appropriate SANE or FID for your location, then check for any appropriate warnings for that SANE or FID.
