yeah trees and bridges and such can be a problem though... the antennae needs clear visibility to the sky... its funny though... sometimes ill have some trees overhead and it will cut out for a second... and others ill be driving in a parking garage under several thick slabs of concrete and it will work fine... lol... it does cut out in situations like that... but overall i think its much much better... the sound quality, station quality, commercial free, station options... oh and every nfl game (for sirius anyways)... make it worth it to me... every now and then ill switch to the radio cause i feel bad, and then a commercial comes on... i change the channel but every station has a commercial!!! then its back to siriusKeyan said:I've heard it, and it's ok. there's alot of trees hanging over the roads in my town and in my friend's car it likes to cut out alot.
I agree, I have XM and I do like it but the songs they play are not all that great sometimes, but it makes up for that with its talk channels, the comedy channels are my favs and when im sick of that and the music I look for other talk stations and sometimes you find good stuff.hyunelan2 said:The selection of music stations is abundant, but from my experience, a whole lot of the stations just play crappy songs you've never heard of, in addition to the same 7 songs you hear on the FM radio.
bet you dont like the idea of paying for cable as well as internet access either?Schooner said:I don't like the idea of paying a monthly charge to listen to the radio...
No the big difference is with Cable and Internet I can choose what I watch or read, but with radio, all you can choose is what style of music you listen to. Just cause I like snoop or 50 doesn't mean I like all rap and want to pay to sit through all the other songs I don't like. I like to be in charge of what I listen to and for the cost of XM I can download a bunch of songs I want to hear, not just what they want to play.importspeed said:bet you dont like the idea of paying for cable as well as internet access either?
the difference between satelite and terrestrial radio is analogous to having cable tv and air(antenna) tv. sattelite radio is the future be it XM or SIRIUS
