Garmin 496 with xm weather not getting TFRs

Recommended Posts

I have a Garmin 496 GPS with XM Weather.  Lately we have noticed that we are not receiving TFRs on the screen.  We have always had TFRs pop up on the screen before.  Have I accidentally change a setting?  Anyone know what might be the problem?  


Thanks, Robin

You have an XM subscription right? Any problems with it? Does it indicate any issues communicating with the XM reciever?


Also make sure you have updated the software on the unit to latest.

We do have a subscription. I called them and somehow our Xm antenna had lost their signal. They refreshed it and now the TFRs are popping up again. So if anyone loses your XM weather or radio, just call SiriusXM, and they will refresh the signal to your antenna and things should be fine again.
