Was thinking this morning about my first AirWare radio. And a feature it had which has long disappeared from later offerings. The Artist or Song alert. You could put 20 of your favourite artists or songs in and it would pop up when any of them played on a different channel giving you a chance to switch. I just realized I miss that feature.

Are there any long forgotten features from long forgotten radios that you guys miss?

I still drive by the occasional trucker where I can hear what they are listening to over my stereo.
Sometimes I want to stay in the lane next to them long enough to try to figure out what station they have on.

My Onyx has a song/artist feature that lets me know what is playing on other channels.

What I don't like about it is that it seems that the buffer feature apparently only works on preset channels. If I keep it on for 20 minutes, I can go to a preset and rewind the previous 20 minutes...but not if the channel isn't a preset.

Sometimes I miss the sports ticker function that my Pioneer AirWare XM2GO radio had. Is that service still supported? It would be nice to have in the car.

I just got into a Twitter conversation with SiriusXM help.

It appears the "MySXM" feature won't be coming back...much sadness and disappointment here.

At least we get video of Shock The...oh wait, they canceled that guy too.
