Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

I'm sure that'll make people who bought a 2014 before July 1st "happy".

Hell, I'd just be happy if Sirius took me off their piss poor XM satellites and put me back on the Sirius satellites so I'd quit getting the "XM service loading... please wait" bullschmidt everytime I use the radio.

So let me get this straight. Chrysler is teaching its customers to hold off buying in case something will get thrown in for free at a later date? Sounds like a poor business plan to me.

Whoopee. Waze is much more accurate and timely than the Sirius traffic system will ever be.

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

I would so excited to have 5 years of crappy sounding satellite radio!

seriously.. I dont know whats wrong with it, but its horrible. Normal radio sounds 10x better... HD sound 30x better. SXM is just dull.

im surprised I havent received a "renew" notice yet? mines up on 7/19 (not that I Will...)

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

I'm really pissed at Sirius right now. From what I've been reading, they're moving customers over to their poorer coverage XM satellites right around the time your free trial period expires.

This "XM service loading... please wait" crap started about 2 weeks prior to my free subscription ending. Never had that happen once prior to that. Now it happens at least twice on every daily commute to-from work.

I've also noticed somewhat of a drop in sound quality after that started happening.

I have an XM radio in my other vehicle and I'm not getting this.

I thought I would use it quite a bit when traveling, but on a long road trip, hardly used it at all, so I will let it lapse.

Fortunately for you (and folks like me), that offer doesn't include sat radio. Only traffic and POI.
