I talked with 5 different salesmen, all at different shops. All were quite enthusiastic about the Sirius and XM radios. When I asked them which one they bought, all 5 said they bought the Sirius because the programming was better. I assume they had plenty of time to listen to both radios during the course of their work.
The Sirius covers all the football games, the XM all the baseball games.
You will need the home and auto kit with either company's radios.
You will see some great online deals on the Sirius/XM web sites from time to time.
The XM Delphi Roadster has a powerful radio transmitter in it, capable of rebroadcasting your satalite programming throughout the house.
On two recent trips, my wife and I listened to our Sirius radio for many hours. It made the long ride much more enjoyable.
Our Sirius had fairly good traffic reporting for the SF bay area and Los Angeles areas.
There's a guy on Ebay selling handlebar mounts for the Sirius Sportster radios. I think he's asking $6 for them.
Overall, I enjoy listening to music more than watching the tube. I'll switch on the Sirius, pipe it into the stereo and cruise the net while my wife is watching dialing for dollars. We have a vent mount for the car and I just move the radio to the car when we get ready to travel.
