Sirius Favorites

Is anyone else using this system? I can't seem to get it to alert me when a saved artist's song comes on.

Does it need to be in Satrad and not Presets mode?

Same issue. My traffic jump funtions, but not favorite song or artist. I tried also to leave it in Sat mode, and waited nothing.

It works. There's just no audible alert. You have to be watching the screen or you'll miss it.

Is Howard 100 available on the standard Sirius BMW sub? My wife got a Honda CRV and it wasn't part of her free 3 month package...

if you've got reception for normal radio and a loaded phone, why Sirius? (mostly I get ear-tired and drive without the "entertainment system" on).

Yes. Honda has XM and H100 is an extra cost add on for that system.

Really? No audible alert? Dumb.

BMW offers (when purchased) a 1 year subscription to the "Sirius Premier" package which gets you all the Sirius channels, including H100, and several select XM-only channels.

Most carmakers, if you get a free trial at all, offer a 90-day preview for the XM or Sirius standard packages which do not include the exclusive content from the other format.

There's no audible alert I've noticed, but when you go into the left menu you can sort by your favorites and it will tell you what's currently on.
