    I won’t renew Guardian, basically worthless to me as the key fab’s distance is pretty impressive (I think). I enjoy SiriusXM but when they are offering me $2.75 / month to renew on my ‘09 Volvo and want $8.25 / month for my Jeep it turns me off. I do intend to call them & ask for the older vehicle’s deal on the Jeep and will be perfectly content with my Apple Music if they tell me “no”.

    Nope, not going to renew Guardian. But I will renew XM Radio since I cannot get a cell signal in a large majority of the places I take the Jeep so my Pandora and Spotify are out of the question.

    I’m amazed people listen to Sirius XM. Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, Pandora are all cheaper (Or free) and much better.

    Podcasts are free and better than any talk program.

    I had XM when it first launched. But streaming apps made it obsolete years ago.

    Plus Doc, I don’t know if you’d ever listened to or are into Sirius NFL radio? There’s as many commercials as Terrestrial radio! What a turn off. You pay for a service and still have to listen to a boat load of commercials??

    I like the XM part and renewed it at the price of 72 dollars for the year.That's taxes and everything.I like XM radio because as I travel with the Jeep, I don't have to search for stations over and over again. I know I can stream via my phone and often do, but I like being able to flip through different types of music with out having to mess with my phone over and over again.



    And I called them to get the $4.99 a month deal.

    Streaming only works where you have cell service. If I'm headed up to the hills (most days, since I run the dogs daily), 5-10 minutes from my house and cell service becomes really spotty. 30 minutes and it's gone. So if I were to rely solely on streaming, then I'd have music for about 10-15 minutes into a 1+ hour drive.

    I use Amazon Prime for music, rarely stream, when on WiFi I find or make playlists, download those playlist, so no need to be online or have connectivity issues.

    Sirius is a no brainer when your out in the woods all the other services won't work when your cell has n o service and its super simple to call and ask for a lower price be it just the radio or the guardian service

    I called this morning as my free trial ends tomorrow. They would not give me a lower price, she said there os no lower price for these services. I’m now paying $35 cad/ month. I just couldn't give up the remote features. This does not include any of the xm radio which I think is crap anyways.

    Heck even on the "commercial free" stations they advertise their other stations.

    The remote features are nice, esp in an emergency. The feature I really like is the "real time" vehicle information. But it doesn't work. ie its shows last update 3 days ago and I have a half a tank of gas. In actuality I have under a quarter of a tank. Spoke to Jeep FCAfeedback several times. Zero help. worthless feature.

    When I purchased my 2019 JL, it included 5 years of XM Traffic and XM Radio, and a 12 month trial of XM Guardian. The Guardian subscription has been messed up since day one as it only shows a 6 month free trial starting on December 18th, 2019.

    I highly doubt that I'll be renewing the XM Guardian subscription because while the features may be nice to have, the data in the app and online is nowhere near real time........my data is at least 5 days old at the best of times!

    The package prices are also pretty steep for Canadians, $33.98/month for the Convenience + Security package, or $17.99/month for either the Assist or Security packages on their own.

    Realized this once I drove a Tesla. Sirius customer service is actually hilarious it's so bad. I haven't figured out a good solution for long drives though where I lose reception for hours at a time. I would get rid of Sirius XM in a heart beat if I did. For now I just pay the $15/mo as it's worth the convenience to me.

    I don't live in a big city (suburb) but if I did I might consider the $400/year expense assuming I couldn't get adequate insurance support for modifications+labor.
