I live in the middle of nowhere, so the only radio signal I can  
consistently get is from a satellite.  When I bought my 2004 GM  
vehicle, I was delighted to activate the dashboard built-in XM Radio.   
Subsequently my son purchased a shirt-pocket portable XM receiver, the  
subscription for which we added to my account.  These days I'm envious  
of my son because he can listen to his XM radio in the house when he  
gets home.  For me to have similar capability, however, I have to add  
a third radio subscription fee to my monthly bill, or I have to buy a  
radio like his and disable (un-subscribe) my in-dash receiver.

If I had it to do over again, I'd look for a removable XM receiver  
module as a vehicle option, or I would skip the in-dash XM radio  
entirely and duplicate what my son purchased — regardless of any price  
differential in either direction.
