Summary: Anyone who knows me knows I love my XM Radio. Now that XM has joined with Sirius, there is even more to enjoy. If you are in the market to buy a radio, There are some things you should know about this particular radio before you purchase it.
The Delphi MiFi XM2Go tries to pass itself as a satellite radio for any situation. This is true, but it is good at some tasks and only barely passable for others. The "portability" of this unit is pretty limited.
Summary: XM Satellite Radio is very nice with a lot of good stations to listen to. You can take this radio anywhere: you can listen to the radio in the house, outdoors or in the car. You can also save what is being played on the radio and listen to it at a later date. But, as mentioned above, some of the components are not well made.
Pros: Nice concept. It is easy to use.
Cons: My remote has failed. So, some of the accessories are not well made. When you broadcast to a FM radio there is always a hiss.
A so so start to portable XM hopefully will lead to future improvements.

Summary: The Delphi MyFi was my first foray into the XM Satellite world and I must say it has been full of highs and lows. I purchased my unit about 4 months ago and have been both pleased and frustrated with the experience. First off my thoughts on satellite radio in general. If you are a first time subscriber you may want to aim for a lower end receiver before making the financial commitment to the MyFi.
Summary: I purchased the MyFi receiver awhile ago and happily used it for about 3-4 months. I thought it would be nice to have a reciever I could use at work, at home, or even "on the go." As an XM receiver it works just fine. I used it both my vehicles with the supplied mounts without any real significant issues. However, I just don't like the layout of the controls and buttons. They would work fine as walk-man type device.
Summary: We bought this item thinking that the XM2Go would give us XM Radio where ever we went. If this is what you are thinking, you'll be in for a suprise. XM2Go does not work inside buildings, unless you plug up the antenna and put it at a window that faces South. Wife wanted to use this at her Office but her Cube is in the middle of the building so that makes it useless since she has no access to run a wire for the antenna all the way to a window that faces south.
