I only listen to Sirius for CNBC, sports, and Playboy/Spice channels. . . Not necessarily in that order! ;) but, seriously, Sat radio has always been lacking in the fidelity department!

Re: Black Interior on Overland

Honestly, I'm glad I got the black overland interior. The Saddle was too orange for me. Now, if it were a darker brown, I might be swayed. But, this interior is the best looking for me.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

iPhone 4 issues are common on the 730n. Supposed to be a fix coming in an update. USB on the radio-does not supply power. It is used for transferring pics and music from memory sticks.

Re: 2011 Hemi MPG

My 5.7 L V-8 2011 Overland is getting 14.8 average (mixed city and highway) driving on 87 octane. I will be putting this into 89 octane at some point. But, I suspect, it will get .5 - 1 mile better.
