I know the Lynx is cool and all, but it just seems like a slow period for sat radio to me. Sat rad 2.0 is basically more channels with DVR features and a few others. Am I wrong? IMHO what sat rad has going for it, and had going for it 10 years ago, is portability in your car. For about $13 a month, you get unlimited, multiple channels of music and talk. Can you get that on your phone? Sure--if you have a fat data plan. Can you pre-record it? Yes, which is fine for music, but not for talk. And all this assumes you get a cell signal. The satellite signal is pretty much bulletproof anywhere outdoors (unless you park under a bridge, etc., etc.). Personally, I'm just not excited much by it. What am I missing? I'd be excited by a decent portable--something I could throw in my car or the wife's with absolute minimal install (maybe plug in a power cord to save batteries) and hit the road for an eight hour trip. Does the XMP3i fit that role? Or is it tethered in some way to docks and car antennas and what not? Can I plug it into the cigarette lighter, throw it on the dash and go?
