Where, unless they've updated the web sites in the few hours,
you will find nothing about it on the Avmap site and an Avmap logo
on the XM site which takes you back to the Avmap site.

Garmin has never had a monopoly on the weather. AnywhereMap has had
it on their solution for years.

True enough. But as far as an all-in-one box, Garmin was it.

No more. (Although that AvMap website is a real mystery...)

Will the others interface with my GNS430W? (At least as well as the 496
does.) Do the others provide XM radio? (My roommate is addicted to XM 164; I
am, too, but expect that it'll be hard to follow a story with ATC traffic
cutting in frequently.)

The only mention I could find of XM Wx on the Avmap site was this on the
Geopilot II Plus page.

Weather Conditions (coming soon!)
With an optional antenna you will be able to receive constantly updated
XM/WX weather conditions: NEXRAD (next generation radar), and Lightning
information will be displayed on the map.

Do we KNOW that the AvMap is going to be all-in-one?

It's not bad. I don't have XM, but I do have about 4,000 hrs. of classics
on .mp3 that I listen to in flight. As long as your not in an ultra busy
sector, it's pretty easy to follow along. My intercom mutes the audio when
ATC transmits.
