Xm on Garmin

 

I called xm about a subscription on my zumo 665 and they asked me if i wanted a liftetime subscription @$576.49. i have a liftime subscrition on my first sirius radio, but the price was much lower. has anyone else has had this offered to them

Can they guarantee

that they'll be in business for a "lifetime"? smile Otherwise, that's a lot of $$ when they can't.

Of course they can guarantee that they will be around for THEIR corporate life laugh out loud

XM Canada is offering a three year subscription for around $465 - so maybe the lifetime one is a good deal. But with the recent Sirius - XM merger, I would not buy more than an annual subscription.

The lifetime subscription

The lifetime subscription for XM is not linked to you as the customer but to the particular unit you are assigning it to.

doing the math if you keep

doing the math if you keep your unit for 8 yeears or more it would justify the $576.00. i have had my sirius unit for 6 years, so i am on the best end of the deal.

1. If you break your unit- it's lifetime is over.

2. You also have to hope that SiriusXM lasts for 8 years.

lifetime subscription

Not so fast. You can transfer your Sirius lifetime subscription to another unit for $75.00

Sirius Radio

After my free 1-year period that came with my new vehicle, I waited for a lower offer that came about 4 weeks later. At $85 a year I felt this was a fair price. No one offered a lifetime rate. I suppose my rate would be available for the Zumo.

That seems a bit steep to

That seems a bit steep to have for a limetime subscription if it is stuck to that unit. Even with $75 to transfer over that still adds to the cost when you don't know the life length of the company.
