Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So my wife and I recently purchased a new car. It's a 2008 Ford Edge.
It's pretty awesome. However, we test drove several edges, and finally settled on an SEL with leather seats, microsoft sync, etc.Each time we got in a new car, I asked the salesman if the car had Sirius installed. He said yes each time (MOST Edges do)
Unfortunately, he was mistaken and when we got home after several days of thinking the subscription just wasn't activated, we realized (through communication with the dealer) that our particular model is satellite capable not satellite installed.
Basically the dealer can install an internal module that will connect to my existing (microsoft sync enabled) console, but it will be pricey. ($600) But I have heard that the internal modules aren't even that great, that they lack features of the small units you install yourself.
1. Is it true that the internal modules tend to suck?
2. If that's not true, can a place like best buy install one cheaper?
3. If 1 is true, what is the best Sirius module to buy? I don't need any fancy unit that records radio, or stores mp3's. Just a really solid module.
4. If 3 applies, how risky is it to allow a place to install the antennae so there won't be wires dangling through the cabin? OR Alternatively, is there a module high tech enough to get a signal just sitting on your dash inside the car?
