I've been using the XM during the free trial a lot to see if I want to get a subscription.

There is a Korean XM station that I've been strangely drawn towards.

I now find myself listening to Korean language radio programming while driving my VT.

I won't be continuing the XM after the free trial is up. TuneIn radio has way more stations and cost nothing.

Yes but my commute passes 3 states and 2 major radio markets so half way through I gotta start searching stations also I get upto the minute traffic reports comedy and all types of music commercial free... I'm a believer of xm and if you can pay a full year at once it's fairly cheap

As long as I stay in my province I pay absolutely nothing and I get radio stations from anywhere in the world. XM here doesn't give any kind of info other than sports and maybe stocks info. $14.99 plus tax per month is just too pricy for what we get here.

Anyone else find the nav unit/XM traffic is pretty bad with general flow information? It does a good enough job with catastrophic incidents, like accidents, road/ramp closures, road work, etc., but it doesn't pick up much when traffic is just heavy., so route guidance often leads you into a high-traffic route. Does a poorer job than my Garmin in that respect (or even Google maps)

The problem with the Nav system is Google Maps - it isn't Google Maps! Google has really spoiled me. It does have its own peculiar operation that takes a few more clicks than I would like.

It does do a few things well though. When I'm out in the sticks Google Maps/Nav doesn't work and it does. The lady sounds nice and natural and her instructions are clear and well timed. It handles my reroutes well and quickly figures out that when I deviate from the route that I want a new route. The split screen thing is nice and feels natural when showing the overall view and the zoomed in next turn. The virtual highway signs when approaching complex interchanges is really impressive. In Atlanta you will be on a 6-8 lane highway and it is not clear which lanes really go where but the Nav display really gets it right and shows you exactly what lane you need to be in.

Another option for droid users is "Waze" I use this gps app a lot it has user loaded info like traffic, road kill, construction, cops. It's not fool proof but is great free app

In Korea, all of the stock/aftermarket navs have (for a long time) told you exactly what lane(s) to be in. I'm surprised it's taken so long for the navi's in the US to have that feature too. ..along with some other nice features to keep you entertained while driving.
