I love my XM so much, I HATE riding in the wife's van now! The only time I listen to regular radio other than the van is my alarm clock. So many choices plus the artist and title of the song (so you will never ask yourself or your passenger) "isn't this ____". "No, I think it's ____." I got it for Christmas and never had a problem with reception until summer with the tree cover. It's very sporadic, though. Fully worth the $13.00 a month in my opinion.
