Best Satelite Radio??

Or does it matter. I was looking at the Serius radios. Does it matter which BRAND of adapter you get to work with the factory radio??

not really but if you go under a tunnel or a bridge, you wont have response with the satelite anymore or at least until you get out of the tunnel/bridge. i like the serius they a good deal for the price.

Sirius has Stern, NHL and all the NFL games as well as the all Elvis channel. XM has baseball games and I think Nascar. Oh yeah they also have the Starbucks channel

Other than that they are basically the same. Sirius has the S50 coming out soon, possibly something to realistically take on the ipod. I've also heard rumors that they will have video in the future.

Sirius > XM on programming, XM tends to have better reception in less than optimal antenna placement situations.

i've had both, and sirius is the way to go, imo... i like the programming a lot better on sirius...on xm, the only stations that i found worth listening to were the music stations...the comedy stations were ok, but not as good as "raw dog", and i'm a stern fan, so that's another thing that closed the deal for me.

Did you install it yourself??
Just curious, the local stereo shop wants $275 installed for the system they sell. I was thinking about installing it myself!!

Sirius without a doubt. I have had it for 3 years now and the programing has only got better. They have NBA games, MLB playoff games, NFL games and a lot of college football games on Saturdays. I'm also using the Starmate right now and its great for a plug and play unit.

There are many models to choose from. $275 is about average. A clean install is usually about 2 hours ($100). Most DIY installs of XM/Sirius I've seen look like total crap. Pro-Fit brackets ($35) also help in many instances to make the install much better looking and allows the unit to be mounted without putting screws through the dash.

yea

Yea SIRIUS will have Howard STERN here in 06 and will also have NASCAR leaving XM and going to SIRIUS. If u like sports SIRIUS will have it all execpt baseball. I can also agree on using PROFIT brackets for installation. They make one for almost any car and work better tahn dougle stick tape or those suction cups. I reccomend the SPORTSTER 2 REPLY, you will have up to 45 min. to play back on it. Try HAWK ELECTRONICS they have good deals on all satelite radio XM or SIRIUS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>CRAIG or MILTON in GARLAND 972 686 4295
