XM Radio has just signed on to be aboard the Home Theater Cruise (HTC) for 2003. They will be offering loner units to the HTC passengers that can be signed out rom HTC staff and used aboard the ship during the trip.

10 units will be available throughout the cruise and will be able to be used both on and off the ship. Seeing that the cruise goes to San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Nassau Bahamas, this really shows range of the sat coverage, thus you can bet you will not have an issue driving cost to cost here in the US. :)

Way to go XM Radio....Now I do not have to leave what I have come to love. I can take my music with me.

I drove from Las Vegas to Denver CO and the only outage I experienced was when I went thru the Eisenhower Tunnel outside of Denver. The tunnel is right thru a mountain so that was to be expected. The buffer on XM did let me listen to the signal almost halfway into the tunnel though. No outages while driving in very narrow passages with very high mountains on each side of the roadway.

Cheers,
Jeff

I drove to Mexico city and Acapulco more than 600 miles away from he nearest border point and XM continued to work perfectly all the way.

I've had it for more that a year and It's a best buy.

The only thing I would like to add is an RDS station and song ID thru the FM modulator.
