Ok so here's my dilemma. Late last week, I tried to mix and match power chargers, meaning I found a car charger that fit the plug on my MP3 player (a really really old iRiver) that, long story short, fried my MP3 player. Won't turn on and still smells like burning.
So I've been thinking about getting either Sirius Radio or an iPod. But now I've gotta chose one and can't decide which to get! I'm getting tired of listening to the local radio stations that have been playing the same thing over and over and over again.
As far as MP3 players go, I didn't really listen to it outside of my car...sure I would take it on vacations and stuff, but it stayed mostly in the car. If I got a new MP3 player, it would definately be an iPod (either Classic or Touch...nano is too small), as I now own a car that can have iPod integration cables and nice mounting options. I'm not quite decided on integration cables, but I'd definatelly go with the Kuda mount.
I used to have XM in my old car but canceled it because the reception was worse than expected and quite frankly, I wasn't in my car all that much...it was 2 miles to school and 6 miles to work. Now I'm driving a lot more...30 miles one way to school and 15 to work. And a few co-workers have Sirius without any complaints. Plus the Artist Alert feature is pretty cool! I'm not concerned about monthly payments as I would get a 1 or 2 year service subscription. As far as equipment, I'd go with the Starmate 5.
So I'm stuck! Should I go with the iPod or Sirius radio?
