    I like viewing it on the huge NAV screen and I do like the traffic and weather alerts. Yes I have an iPhone that has that app on it too but be honest you certainly can't drive and easily review the small screens on our cell phones.

    FYI: I had edited my verbiage to say "calm down" instead. You seem to believe that because you think it is a waste of your money or time you don't think anyone should want it too. BTW: My name is Marc with a "c". LOL

    Marc (with a 'c'),

    I think it's great that you love your NAV screen for traffic and weather alerts. But if you'd bothered to have looked up the Samsung Galaxy Note II specs before posting, you would have found it has a 5.5" screen, a far cry from the "tiny" iPhone screen.

    I'm very calm when I write on here. You fan boys just don't get it that some of us don't LOVE GM and it's issues when compared to other experiences some of us have had with other brands. I don't wish ill will on anyone on here. My Caddy experience hasn't been the talk of lore.

    I have to say I've just jumped ship from XM since their latest screwing me around for the last six months on billing. I'm done with them for now.

    I hope you didn't give them a credit card number or you may be in for some big surprises. This is precisely the reason I use Discover Card for their secure account numbers. I cancel the secure account number w/o having to cancel my real credit card number. Good luck Capt'n.

    Re: XM Subscription

    Just got off the phone with XM since our 13's trial was running out in a few days. Just told them I wanted to cancel because the time we spent in the car didn't justify the full year's price. They immediately offered a 50% priced reduction. Ended up costing $96.75 for a year of just the music. That is including all royalty fees and applicable taxes. Could have added the traffic nav and weather for $21 more, but we would never use it. As long as we can get it for %50 off we will keep it. When they make us pay full price, it is gone.

    Re: XM Subscription

    If you listen to the 'refeed' stations on XM (ones they 'rebroadcast' from terrestrial) or 20s on 20, then they do repeat. But they have a huge library and claim to have software that PREVENTS a repeat of any song on the same station in a 3 day period...
    Basically what you are getting when you try and cancel is the 'multi-receiver' discount. I have 5 or 6 receivers, and I would never give up any of them. I think its great that people get a 50% discount, but not going to fight it on my primary, when I get 5 others at the 50% off price...

    Re: XM Subscription

    FWIW I like my XM enough to keep paying for it when the trial ran out. While some may go the free app route, I prefer the integration with my radio to any external device. The traffic and weather is a bit of a novelty for me, but I'm keeping it for now. There are plenty of folks who say they won't pay for music etc, but a whole bunch are paying. It comes down to preference and options.

    I don't have a newer SRX yet but is there a charge for Pandora?

    I started this thread at the beginning of the month and I just wanted to say thanks for everyone's comments. My tale with XM ended today with my renewal at a good rate. I never got a call from them wanting me to renew so I called them this past Tuesday after my trial ended over the weekend. I had received two notices in the mail wanting me to renew and in each case the number to call was different. I used the first number 800-347-0600 and got nowhere with the operator. It was take the list price deal of $175 or do without so I did without. Today in the mail I got a special deal of $25 for 6 months for XM Select and yet a third different number to call: 877-486-7017. The operator was very helpful and said they also had an annual plan for $95 plus tax and fees. The total was $107. But no deal for NavTraffic. That was an additional $43 if I wanted to opt for that. I also got the same deal for my 2010 CTS that I bought last year as well as 2 additional months since I was entitled to a 2 month trial. I have noted the renewal date in my calendar so I can remember to call to cancel and start this hassle over again. Just not worth what they are asking for it.

    Makes you wondr how they get the rates they offer. As noted in an earlier post, I just got a year for $95 including taxes and fees. I have to go through this hassle three times a year as we have three different vehicles renewing at different times. The direct number to the cancelation dept is 888-539-7474

    I did a similar thing, but paid a little more. The $25 for six months didn't come in time,but I was still able to negotiate a good deal based on having another receiver and they even took money off for keeping me on hold. I left the Nav Traffic off. Not too long after I received an offer in the mail for Nav Traffic and Weather for 5months of $10. It will revert to the regular rate and automatically renew quarterly after that. Look for an offer from them soon. I was sure glad I waited.

    I am in my first 3 month subscription and I am enjoying it. What annoys me the most is if I am paying for this service why am I still getting those awful commercials. They are like the ones on AM talk radio wanting me to buy gold, Viagra etc!

    The commercials are standard-fare for everybody. It's not really commercial-free anymore.

    Depends on the channel. Siriusly Sinatra has no commercials. Country channel "Six" does.
