Looking for some advice from other satellite radio owners out there. I'm finally making the purchase this spring and looking to get a plug and play deck that I can take from the car to the truck and to the boat. Right now I'm deciding between the Sportster 5 and Starmate 5, I looove the Sportster 5, it seems to have the best menus, not as much lag in between channels, and easiest to read display, and I can get it for $130.
However, only the Starmate 5 has a la carte programming, and I'd much rather have that and pick almost all the available music channels for my 50, on the Sportster 5 I can only get the mostly music package, which is more expensive, and is missing out on some music channels I'd like to have (don't really need talk/sports/or news). Not to mention the Starmate would be $100 and then only $7 or so a month compared to the $12-$13 mostly music plan...
Anyone have experience with either the starmate or sportster? And which plans are you guys using?
