So my SiriusXM trial was running out on my 18 JLU sport. So seemed like the only reasonable thing to do was to renew the trial... SiriusXM listener care said I can’t renew the subscription as a trial so I said... “challenge accepted!!”

cut to my new 2020 JLUR!! “Renewed” my 1 year trial!
I showed you Sirius!! :handsinair:

Maybe... But this just might work.
I think I might be able to convince my wife that this is truly free, especially if I can push out the first payment for a month.
This is a scathingly brilliant marketing ploy. And even if she she figures out this is irrational reasoning and says NO to a new Jeep, I can use this example for whenever she wants to go furniture shopping.

ZERO interest in Sirius. I let my “intro period” expire. Now I get daily offers in the mail...price keeps going down, too. $7 or $8 bucks for 6 months then renews are regular rates. Not paying for radio. Sirius is junk.

Did you have to give them a credit card number?

I learned the hard way that once they get hold of your credit card you are totally screwed. At the end of the period you will need to fight tooth and nail to get them to stop charging your card. They put their stupidest reps to handle cancellations, too.

I won’t give Sirius one penny any more.

I learned that the hard way too...once they’ve got your CC#, it is impossible to get through to them to cancel. Sirius is crap.

With Sirius, all you have to say is that you want them to bill you and for them to waive the $2.00 .... waive the billing fee, because it is against the law in your State to charge a billing fee.

The nitwits never question that, and waive the billing fee every time.

Now, you go to their website and your account there, and pay with a CC. Just be sure to select charge to CC, one time only option there..

I never pay more then $5.00/month for Sirius XM. You just have to play that little game with them..

Great info. Thanks for sharing. Now I have to decide if I want to play that game at all...

If I let the “Trial” expire, does the satellite map info also expire? (I.e. I can’t use the satellite mapping in the Jeep?)

The traffic and weather were a five year trial for me. At least that is what my Sirius account says online. The map data works regardless of subscription, just not traffic. I just use CarPlay: much better.

Yup,

Google Maps running through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, is the way to go for Satellite Imagery with the JL.

Google Maps, saved, offline Maps is something I rely on.
