Use it in my personal truck, had it in my not-so-clean turbo-diesel VW Sportwagen before I sold it back to VW. Still constantly bombarded with offers to reactivate the VW... car probably been destroyed... haven't owner it for over 2 years now.

On a 6 month promo deal... like $5.99/mo.. Goes up soon... Have been told if you let it lapse for a month or two you can get the promo deal back. Dunno.

Been researching radios (built into my Frontier). They have a couple free units now... come with car and home combo docks, car kit, antenna, etc.. I think both use Aux connector or FM tuner interface. There is a new Bluetooth touchscreen model out but availability looked sketchy. Moving in that direction (home, RV) so hoping for a deal on that one soon.

I figure I should wait to see how truck is equipped (if/when I can get back to that) but figure a portable model has other advantages. I could let unit in Frontier lapse (especially once on the road) and just use bluetooth from portable unit in car. When they are willing to offer low rate again I might reactivate it to not have to mess with moving it back and forth. I love it... just don't want to pay a ton for it.

Pandora is also an option, as are a couple of iPods and a portable HD unit I bought because freaking Frontier radio is not HD. Don't use it much. Too many cables and charger connections! Same with iPod. If plugged in they like to come on when starting vehicle, then they keep running when switched power goes off.

May need a smart charge / switch gizmo. Maybe an inverter or always on 12-volt circuit solves some of this.

I know Ben Heckendorf (of Ben Heck show fame) could solve it for me. But he wouldn't bite on my doggy auto-tummy rubbing gizmo idea so I guess I'm probably on my own!

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I heart radio app, it's free. Bluetooth phone to truck radio. YouTube music app it's free also but your phone will stay unlocked (screen on) for the entire time unless you pay for a month subscription. Both of them you more or less shape your station by adding artist names or songs.

And then there's this:

Spotify 60-day free trial... limited time offer. $9.99 / mo. after

The advantage of satellite radio over Spotify, Pandora, Iheart, etc. is that you are not depending on a cell phone signal or burning through your data. I swear by Siriusxm. I pay 5.99 per month. 140 stations.

I know with Spotify you can actually download your playlist offline so it doesn't matter if you have a cell signal or not. That's what I do although I rarely lose single.
