Why do you say that? Considering SN8 almost completed the entirety of its test milestones, and only crashed and burned at the very end, I would expect something as simple as a software change to fix it.I’ll bet there will be a redesign of number 8, delaying launch.
The XM system uses 2 satellites. Sirius uses 3.How many working satellites do they need for a functional service?

How many miles were on it when you gave it back?For the longest time (and maybe even to this day) the auto manufactures stuck with the platform they originally had agreements with back in 2001/2002 when Sirius and XM were separate companies. Since GM was an initial financial investor in XM in the late 90s, it was only natural they offered XM. The XM-GM relationship was pretty tight with Delphi making the early plug and play radios and XM's relationship with DirecTV. I think Toyota and Honda were the only other manufactures to go XM. Ford, Diamler Chrysler, BMW, VW went Sirius. Since Ford had ownership stake in Mazda, Land Rover/Jag, Volvo and Aston Martin at the time those were all Sirius as well.
Last month I took my car to the dealership to replace a bad solenoid and there was an issue so they gave me a brand new 2021 Edge ST with 17 miles on it for the weekend. In all honestly the Sirius XM sound quality was the same that's in my 2013 Navigator. The nice thing though, I could get all of the extra channels, so I was on Rock Bar and Red, White & Booze non stop for three days. Kinda made up for having to drive a tiny shoebox for a few days.
I notice dead spots around town, no hills anywhere.I managed a Radio Shack company store for many years in NE VT.At one point we sold both Sirius and XM.Based on customer feedback it seem liked Sirius didn't cut out as much ie satellites were higher in the sky.Anyone know if this is true?
Also never had the service until I got a car 2 and a half years ago that came with one year free.I certainly did notice that it would cut out at some point (usually in valleys) during every trip.Yesterday we made a 50 mile roundtrip listening to deep tracks.Got home and I noticed that it hadn't cut out once.
