Default XM Radio

It's been out for a while, has anybody had a chance to experience XM radio? I messed around with a store demo and really liked it. When I get a new CD player for my car, I'm thinking about subscribing to XM radio. What do you guys think?

I would personally love to have it, I just don't like the fact that its 12 bucks a month plus the 300 some odd dollar hook-up if your cd player isn't compatible.

For someone that does a lot of driving, like a trucker, it would be a great investment. My Brother-in-law has it and loves it. He drives about 500,000 miles a year and wouldn't be without it. He said it was really difficult to find a decent rock station in Wyoming or Utah.

I read about this in Popular Science mag about a year ago. It sounded really sweet and I know a guy that's thinking of getting it, but MP3s and FM radios are just fine for me, until the cost goes WAY down.

I don't do a lot of driving, so my CD player/FM/AM radio included does me fine usually. But XM radio sounds like a great thing for some.
