S100 doesn't have it. S10 does have it! Two different version of the Stiletto.

It's amazing that just a few years ago, people didn't care about this with plain old FM. Now with Satellite Radio, it seems to be a must have. What did everyone do before Artist Alert was around?

I've only had it for about a year and a half. Since I bought my Starmate ST-1 in June of 2005. Now I have a Stiletto, and I really don't care if it has it or not. This thing can save the whole song for future listening enjoyment.

Get the Stiletto. You'll be impressed by all the other stuff it can do...

I think you have to decide that yourself, based on your needs and wants.

I was initally pissed that the S100 didn't have the song/artist seek. But with the ability to "LOVE" songs, I really don't miss it. I can hear those songs anytime I want. Sure it would be nice to have, but in my mind it just isn't a deal breaker.

The lack of Artist Alert doesn't bother me. But if they could give you an option to mute the Stilletto, power it off or change to a different channel when ever Justin Timberlake came on, that would be great!

I would pay the $2.99/mo if the premium package allowed you to set up a "Artists/Titles I *NEVER EVER EVER IN A MILLION YEARS NEVER EVER WANT TO LISTEN TO* List".

Yeah i definatly miss the artist/song seek that my replay has in my car. When i got the stiletto 100 i just assumed it would come with it, hopefully it'll be added in a update someday. The LOVE song feature is nice, but you have to be listening to the song live to record it which sucks, you should be able to record off a radio replay but they dont let you do that either. I dont understand why when its already recorded on the stiletto.

Why would you want to record songs off the replays, you already have them saved and you can listen to them whenever. I understand that it may be a little harder to get to the song in the replay but I don't think it's worth gripping about...........

i really thought i'd miss artist seek with the stiletto 100 when i purchased it. turns out i'm ok with it now, you just have to change the way you listen a little.

Cool Stiletto 10 has artist seek?

Why would they ad it to the 10 and not the 100?

If you only want portability than get the Stiletto 10. It'll do the job you want. If you really want to record then get the 100. The 100 has built in Wifi and the ability to record songs, shows, and upload your own songs. SIgnificantly more memory than the 10. If all you want is portable Sirius on the go, save some cash get the 10. Cant really record much to it, but you get artist alert and get to keep some of your money.

It has something to do with the ability to record from Sirius. I forget the exact details about it. EIther you can't with the SL10 or that the amount of memory dedicated to the SL10 is so small that they give you artist alert to make up for it.
