Heh, that would have irritated a lot of subscribers. Play some Coffeehouse for me.

I thought the same thing and was MOST relieved to discover that was not the case. The update on my radio actually happened on Tuesday night while I was listening to it. I thought I had lost signal but when I looked at it, it was doing the updates.
If you use the website to figure out new channel lineups, beware! The "customized guide" will give you an incomplete list of channels, so it is not worth the time to create it. Better just to pull up the entire new lineup for the package you have...I did that and discoered there were a couple of channels listed that I didn't know about before that I want to listen to.

Mine updated itself too, I was very pleased - thought I was going to have to print out a list and do it all manually.

Mine updated too... very quickly. I had a short trip first thing in the morning and I thought it might not finish by the time I got there but it was ready by the end of the driveway.
Presets all look very strange now (with different numbers) but they stayed in the same position so I'll be able to remember them. The category button on my radio makes a bit more sense now. After the merge, it was all over the place.

I guess I should take my wife's CX-7 out today and see if the resets take place. We've got Sirius, so not exactly sure what changes will be made.

"More than 45 million cars and light-duty trucks will have Internet radio in 2018, up from about 4 million this year, research firm Strategy Analytics said, adding that almost half of those Internet radio-connected cars will be in North America."

access from my car, along with the capability to download shows for playing later, I'd cancel my XM subscription immediately.
I may anyway, if Opie & Anthony and/or Ron/Fez ever go away or lose even more content.

I cancelled xm. It is expensive, a pain in the a-- install and poorly programmed.
A crystal set beats xm any day of the week!

I've had Sirius in my car for about 4 years now. It's not perfect, but compared to local radio 95% of the time, I will deal with it.
