Anyone have Sirius XM satellite radio for their cars/homes?

    Keep in mind they don't play the whole audiobook at a time. They do a chapter or two a day. There are different shows every hour.

    The old-time radio station is so much fun, though.


      I've had Sirius in my car for a few years. I could also listen on my computer, but they took that feature away, now it costs extra. Since I have been able to hook up my ipod to my car's audio system I wasn't listening to Sirius much anymore, and I just canceled my subscription. Mine was $149 a year. I listen to my ipod all of the time - audiobooks, podcasts, music, etc.


        I found that the NPR channels' programming was one day behind
        and some of my favorite programs were not even available on XM.

          Our new RAV4 has XM capability. However, it costs $600 at the dealer to hook up. Sort of a rip-off when all it is a module installation. Especially when parts online are about $200 or less. Installation can't be that hard.
          Sat radio was a nice feature on our trip last year to Seattle area. Only thing that prevents me from getting Sat radio for the car is that you need a subscription for the car and then one for your home or portable device.
          So if I want Sat radio, I'll get a portable device to use anywhere. I'll have to investigate models. For use of a portable device in our RAV 4 all I have to do it find out how to hack into the antenna lead. Then I'm golden.

          I think Santa will bring a portable Sat radio to me. I want to listen anywhere I am.
          Been there. Done that. Can't remember.


            Ok, so I'm a bit late to this thread..... My 70-mile round trip commute each day can be upwards of 4 hours (2 hours to go 35 miles is insane, I know...). Even though my drive goes from the NY radio market to the Philly radio market, and back, I get so tired of commercial radio, and even though I'm a diehard NPR-er, sometimes I just want music. Since I love the Grateful Dead, keeping XM was a no-brainer. I'm also a heavy listener of Radio Margaritaville, and the MLB station during baseball season. It's so nice to listen to uninterrupted music, so it's worth every penny (<$20/month) to me.
