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.
