To receive XM weather or audio, the GPSMAP 740s requires a GXM 40 Smart Antenna with XM subscription.

The GXM 40 Smart Antenna (010-00730-00) is used to receive weather and audio service from XM satellite radio. For details on XM services please visit our XM webpage.

Once a GXM 40 Smart Antenna has been connected to the GPSMAP 640, the device can display the subscription information for the antenna.

From the Home Page in Boating mode:

  1. Select Configure
  2. Select System
  3. Select System Information
  4. Choose Weather Subscription

From the Home Page in Driving mode:

  1. Select Tools
  2. Select XM Services
  3. Select XM Radio
  4. Set the channel selector to channel 0
  5. Select Radio ID

The subscription information will now be displayed on the screen.

Won't turn on is voltage is under 12.9 volts

Sounds like you have a battery problem not a Electronics Problem. First thing is to solve that.
Also, you have to hold in the button to turn it on for a few seconds. More than once I thought I had a problem but simply did not hold the button long enough.

My GARMIN 740s turned off by itself last night, and now when I turn it on, the GARMIN logo comes on the screen for about ten seconds, then the unit turns itself off again. How do I fix this problem?

Sounds like a battery that has gone bad. Remove that battery and make sure you don't have any corrosion on the contact points. You might also "reset" the unit. There should be a small hole somewhere on the unit that is labeled "reset". Usually will take a paperclip end to do that trick.
Good Luck.

XM radio sounds like crap!!!

if the xm and gps antennas are close together this will happen. u will have to move one to the front and the other to the back of the vehicle.
