Onyx Device and Kit for my car last week! Hubby was nice enough to install it while I was at work! Here is a photo of what it looks like! It's MUCH different than my old one which I LOVED. But I figured it was time to finally move on and get a new one because it fit better in and with my new car - my 2013 Fiat - or as I like to call it "The Wonder Buggy."
I've been a XM (Sirius/XM) Subscriber even before the merge of the two companies. Mostly because I wanted to still enjoy radio without having to listen to the stations I work for (and listen to for 50 hours a week while working) and/or didn't want to listen to our local competitors and feel like a traitor! I still get a lot of negative comments from my fellow radio people because most think Satellite Radio will 'kill' local radio. I don't necessarily feel that way. This is a PAID service were as local radio is ALWAYS FREE. But I can see both sides!
But I don't want to get into a debate about the pros and cons. I just want to show you my new Techie-Type-Toy!
This is a photo of my old device which was an XM Roady! It was awesome! I LOVED it! I'm sure I will LOVE my Onyx but it will take some getting used to change-wise. My Roady was reliable! I had it for nearly 10 years - if memory serves! I never had 1 problem with it!
I'm hoping this new device works just as well if not better! I like the sleek look and the black-techie color matches everything in my Fiat! The screen color we currently have set to a reddish color to match the lights on the dash in the "Wonder Buggy". The only bad part is I have to reset all of my favorites/pre-sets. But at least there are a few more buttons to store my favorites in as I have MANY that I listen to and switch back and forth to often!
