I have it in my cars. Havn't put it in the boats yet, but I do love it. Lots of stations and always good reception.

I have not added it to the boat yet, hope to do so soon.

We do have it is the Excursion and in the F-350.

I LOVE it. They now have a plan where if you have two or more the price drops from $9.99 per month to $6.99 per month. Called the family plan.

I like the 80's channel, Boneyard, Top Twenty and the comedy channels.

You will like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the excursion we have the add on unit where you program the radio to a certain channel and it plays. It is easy to do. The marine antenna's I have seen are UGLY and way too big. I plan to use the auto antenna. Sony makes one that is no larger than a GPS antenna.

We have the cassette adapter kind.. Works great, no commercial every 20 min, you can get the hard-wire kind or the cassette thing. It is pretty cool , Nascar, Comedy , Old,New school, just about any music, etc.

I have the Siruis in the boat and the XM in the car. I like the Sirius stations better. XM is more forgiving on signal so you can mount it underneath the deck. Nice thing is you don't need to change stations while the boat is underway. Very easy to install yourself.

I have the new Delphi units that will work in your car and have a home docking station and boat kit so that the same unit with only one $9.99 per month fee can be used in all three places. I will be at my office all day Wednesday and can put together a deal.

Question

Will it work all over the country? I have a place in Lauderdale and I keep the boat there in the winter. I am here in OK in the summers and I want it to work in both places.

Best money I have every spent! Have three of them. The latest I gave my wife for Christmas. At the time, they had just come out with a new gadget. A module about the size of a pack of cigarettes that can be moved from one cradle to another. So, my wife has this little cradle in her car, one attached to our stereo in the house, and a boom box that we can take with us on the boat. I imagine we could have a cradle installed in the boat that works through the stereo Ė I just havenít gotten around to it yet. Donít remember the cost, but considering the kind of toys we all have, its immaterial!

Anywhere coast to coast.

Never have to change channels if you don't want to!
