I do have one minor issue with it, and that has to do with text display when it is on AUX. I like having the iPod displaying the text, but I don't see any reason to continually display P 06-01 and AUX the whole time the AUX channel is selected. It would have been better to display AUX to show that you are on it, and the let the clock display, that is something the DICE did, that I liked.

I had to change my OEM Sirus to my plug and play, since my Sirius internet access ran out on my account, and I need to listen to Stern at work :-) So, I will be using the AUX about as much as the iPod, and if it isn't displaying song titles, then it should display nothing and allow the clock to display. Other than that, I am really glad I made the switch, so far so good. Assuming I won't have to a battery reset every month or two, I will stay a happy customer.

Yeah. The USA-Spec is 100% better than the DICE for sound quality.
I mean I prefer sound quality over Playlist management any day.

I think it displays the P 06-01 and AUX intermittently on the display to let you know where you are in terms of the location within the USA-Spec.

It still displays AUX with the P 06-01 on the display so its no big issue in regards to performance
