The GDL 40 cellular marine weather receiver from Garmin is designed to provide weather information for the way you fish: one day — or one weekend — at a time. Only need Friday’s through Sunday’s weather? That’s what it is designed for. The first cellular marine weather receiver on the market, the GDL 40 communicates with nearby cellular network signals to receive data from Digital Cyclone, a subsidiary of Garmin. In the United States, the first-year activation fee is included with the purchase of a GDL 40, and after that, a nominal $9.99 annual charge keeps the account active. To download weather information, select the Buy Weather option on the chart plotter for live weather radar, wind speeds and directions, sea surface temperatures, wave heights, local forecasts, country and marine warnings, lightning locations and more for $4.99 for 24 hours. The GDL 40 is compatible with the GPSmap 6000/7000 series, GPSmap 4000/5000 series, GPSmap 700 series and GPSmap 4X1/5X1/5X6 series (NMEA 2000 versions). $299.99; www.garmin.com
