Default S10 needs to play mp3/wma

Come on sirius, at least let us use 1/2 the memory for mp3 storage. We don't get wi/fi but "Ipod like" features would be nice! As it is the S10 is just barely better that the S50, and with all the same accessories it costs $100 more. No clock, no auto dimmer in the car, so far I don't think I got my money's worth....

Make your point and take it back, get a refund. Sirius isn't going to read these boards and change their minds.

I had no idea that the S10 wouldn't play MP3's. That is really weak. There is no way that unit should cost as much as it does. It should really be 100 dollars less with no wifi and no mp3 playback.

I'd throw out the exta hundred and get the 100. Either that or take it back and get a sportster 4.

Too Bad it does not play mp3's because Crutchfield is giving away 50 free mp3 downloads with the purchase of the SL10. Maybe it will play them.

Oh the irony......


The page for the SL10 on Sirius.com does not say anything about mp3/wma playback like the 100's page does.

I have the 10 as well. While I am a bit bummed about the no mp3 thing, I am over it. Recording channels is like a "surprise" mp3 player. i don't like knowing whats coming up and loading etc. Although in a few cases it would be nice.
But I really think that soon enough someone will hack this thing and give us mp3 playback. It's got a freaking hard drive, why not. Ipods can be hacked and this will be too. But I would much rather someone make a better wearable antenna. Or figure how to use a standard one w/o a dock first.
