MSN Direct - Opinions?


After looking through posts, the last general discussion on MSN Direct was started in December 2008. Since this is a newer service, I was wondering if it has improved (or has gotten worse)? I'm in the Syracuse area, so if anyone happens to have MSN Direct in that particular area, I certainly would be interested in hearing about coverage. I have a little pink Nuvi 205 and am hesitant to dish out the $100 ($90 at Amazon but then I get NY tax on top of it) for the MSN Direct receiver if it isn't going to work. Please give your location in the posts, since I am quite certain that other folks who may be interested in MSN Direct will want to know the areas with the best/worst coverage.
Thank You!
