   I can see the value of buying one with Sirius support for one vehicle, and
using the existing unit in another. That assumes, of course, that I can use
either with the same account.

   Nothing on the seat. The radio will be attached to the dashboard and share
my attention with the GPS navigator, the speedometer, and the road.

   A client of mine hit a deer on his way to the mine. He wasn't hurt, but
his vehicle and the animal were. Rather than a deerstalker hat, why not buy
me a bull bar for the front?
