In PCB it cuts out more than half the time and it's not just when behind the sky scrapper condos. I'm done with them. Now they call every week and offer to re-subscribe me for only 20% of what I was paying before if I'll give them another chance. Bob...throw it in the trash!!
That and they raise the subscription fee every year... I finally cancelled...

That's all too new...

Although I do like a little bit of Iron Maiden, a smidgen of Krokus, and a smattering of Megadeath
And like my Avatar: some Megahertz!

As I've said: my taste in music isn't for the faint-hearted...

SXM gave me free Onyx and an install coupon. Plugged it into the aux jack and ran the wire up the edge of the windshield and have the antenna sitting under the front bunk, works well through the roof of my Four Winds Sprinter.

We should swap I-Pods for a week, and see whose ears bleed first!

I loved the XM option and have been a subscriber for many years...its just the changes since the merger I don't care for.
I too love driving at night. What I don't like is cleaning the bugs off the RV.

Here’s my solution for Sirius radio on your Axxera Radio (BTW not too enchanted with whole axxera radio).... get a Sirius subscription, which I assume you already have. Load Sirius app to your iPhone or like device. Connect via Bluetooth to your axxera. Select what channel you want on iPhone app and You’re there. Loses signal and has to be reconnected occasionally but does the job

"We should swap I-Pods for a week, and see whose ears bleed first!"

Last year while visiting family in Michigan I made the statement..."we should swap phones and look at each other's pictures...kinda like scrapbooks". It was so funny to watch the nieces (early 20's) immediately start scrolling through their phones and censoring/deleting dozens of pictures.

Don't ever ask: you wouldn't want to know the answer...

We have unlimited data on our ATT cell plan
So we stream-Bluetooth our Sirius/XM off our phone onto the Axxera Bluetooth
That works great for our needs

We don't have unlimited data but do the same thing. Streaming music is not much of a data hog. We used to do Pandora but got so tired of the constant commercials. We now use Amazon Prime Music and like it much better; and it's just as free as Pandora as we have the Prime account for so many other reasons.

We've got three LG smart Tv's in our Tiffin. How do you stream TV from a smartphone into a smart TV?

We have IPhones/iPads. Bought an adapter from Apple (you can find similar ones on Amazon) that plug into the port at the bottom of the device. The adapter has an HDMI port that we plug an HDMI cable from the TV to the adapter. On the TV MENU , We select the HDMI that is connected to the device and wala we can watch our U-VERSE steaming w/free data.
Also, the adapter has a port that allows charging the device while streaming
