I was just checking through Sirius, some head units come with the ability to pause, rewind and replay live radio, but not fast foward. Can't exactly fast forward stuff that hasn't happened yet. But I guess if there are some channels that are just loops or something then you may be able to fast forward.
And some of the units give you alerts when your favorite songs are playing.
Remember though, this is a car stereo system that has Sirius enabled, kinda different than a Sirius radio that does FM as well (kinda the opposite). So of course you are going to get more features with their dedicated units.
I have the Nav unit so I get the larger screen and I have the ability to save 18 of my favorite stations (even though I only listen to like 7 or 8 regularly). Overall I am happy, but I have never had Sirius before, so the "basic" features as you call them are fine for me during the trial period.
Sorry to hear about your UVO troubles though, I have an '11 so no UVO on those systems.
Wife and I bought a new '12 EX this past weekend. We love it. VERY happy with the build quality and options (was on the lot with 15 miles and had $1500 worth of upgrades, and basically got them down to almost invoice. very happy about that).
Anyways, still learning the UVO system, and have come across an issue. I have a Motorola Droid X, and wife has a Droid 2 Global. When I give the voice command "READ SMS", it says "SMS Unavailable". Anyone else have this issue, or a fix for it?
Also kinda disappointed about the fact that there is no option in the Sirius/XM to save artists/songs, fast forward/pause, as well as other options that are included in basic Sirius/XM head-units. I have loved my Sirius in our other vehicles for years, and now I guess I just have to deal with the "basics" of the service.
If anyone has any advice on the questions, they're much appreciated! Glad to be here.
Most phones do not support the proper bluetooth protocol to allow interfacing with the car via SMS. It's frustrating for me too.
You need a phone that supports the bluetooth "Message Access Profile"
I think some blackberry's might. I know my iPhone does NOT support it.
