Sirrus Anyone use it ?

Although I have 5.5 months left on my trail period. I got a thing in the mail for like 17 a month(if paid monthly) for the subscription. I like it but are there any issues/problems/something to watch out for?

Why use it when you can use Pandora for free and make your own custom stations?

It's just radio? So I don't know what one would look for if getting Sirius? Everyone gets it and everyone usually gets it free when buying a new car. If you wait longer the deal gets better. I paid $110 for one year and it renews every year.

The major issue I have with it is that not all stations are HD or stereo, some programs almost sound like an AM station. The sound quality I get using bluetooth and streaming Slacker Radio beats it hands down. I am going to miss Howard Stern, but I couldn't stand the bad sound quality.

Also, the trick is to call them and tell them your cancelling and they will offer you like 50% off and then you can say that's not good enough and they will offer you another 50% off and so on... they know their product is becoming obsolete. Pandora is where its at!

Pandora is way nicer, better sound quality and etc. It's works fine on Bluetooth but with no MFT apps it sucks not having the full effect.

Just searched and found it. Looks cool, but no smart phone to load it on.
