Who has it and do you like it? Also do you think the price is to much? I just picked up the RoadyXT and am in love with it. Took it up north with me last weekend and it was nice to not search for radio stations when I was out of range. And the selection is very nice, I can always find something to listen to and love the comedy stations.
I will be using it alot in my work van which is the main reason for buying it. I drive roughly 100 miles a day in my van so I listen to radio alot. :)

I have Sirius radio and I definitely like it. I think the year package if I recall was about $140 dollars or so.

I have XM, factory installed, paid $60 for 1 year subscription. I let my free 3 month subscription run out, they sent me a bill for like 100+ to continue the subscription for another year. I declined, waited about a month, got an offer in the mail for previous subscribers to come in at a lower rate, so I bit :D

A couple channels do have commercials but they arent really long like regular radio, and I know you wouldnt buy it yos but its worth it to me.

I also tried the free three days trials online through sirius and xm and chose xm because of the programming. I liked it alot better than sirius but I am sure both have there good and bad.:)

As I understand it DirecTV has XM with their service now? I am bringing DirecTV back for the first time in 5 years next week.

I have Sirius and absolutely love it! One of the best purchases I've made...honestly. You can't go wrong with either of the two companies if you ask me. 100% better than terrestrial radio!! :thumb: I have a plug and play unit. I take it out of my car and then just plug it into my boombox at work. :cool:

If you like Stern...get Sirius. His show's are better than ever! They also have his show's streaming on his site and through sirius.com. You will need to use your sirius username / pass to log in though.

Price is fine, which I pay quarterly. Best money I spend every month just about.

I dont know about sirius as i have never used it let alone heard it. But i do love my XM! I heard it once in my bosses vehicle and was astounded by the clarity of the music didnt particularly care for the music he had it set too.

When i bought my latest car it came with XM from the factory. I thoroughly enjoy it when i am driving down the road minus the tunnels.

I love my local stations, so XM is useless for me. Only reason I have it is cuz it came installed from the factory.
