My personal experience with my xm radio has been a very good one. I love it, it makes traveling in my car so much more enjoyable. It even has a remote to control it, so it makes it easier to change the station without paying to much attention to the actual radio itself. I absolutely love xm radio because it has so many stations, so you have so many options to choose from if your a music lover, sports lover, or anything you have ever heard on the radio you will find all that and more on the xm radio. Another feature I love about it is you can save songs on it as well, which is like free music you can listen to whenever your in the car. Also you can have it tell you whenever a certain song comes on, it will make a beep and tell display exactly what song, and what station that particular song is on. The downfall of the radio, is there is a monthly bill which is unfortunate, but trust me it's worth it. Also, another bad thing about it is if your directly under an object it can't get a reception, but in that situation, you can change the antenna direction so it can get a reception. As long as there is nothing above you directly, it will get reception everywhere, even in the mountains, which I love because I love the mountains. The xm satellite radio is a great investment if you spend a decent amount of time in the car, and just love good music or entertainment.
