I just added Faction to a blank space in my Presets A.
It helps me remember to tune in Ellis in the afternoon if I'm away from the office.
The rest of them are the same.

I moved the Bridge from A-8 to A-7 and moved The Blend from A-7 to A-8.

After more thought about The Bridge and its tweeked format, I realized I was listening to it more than others and did a bit more of a shuffle.

The Bridge A-8 --> A-4
Classic Vinyl A-4 --> A-6
1st Wave A-6 --> A-7
The Blend A-7 --> A-8

I've deleted a few, but I'm too lazy to add...

Hello, I know the feeling! Rather a station is in A1 or A10 is of little importance to me. I see all my presets on a nice big iPod/iPhone screen, so I just touch the channel icon and bam I am there! :)

Yeah, but you actually have to scroll down to see more than 4 channels! Too much work... :shock:

To each is own. The order is particularly important to me in the car cause I can go +1 or -1 on presets without taking my hands off the steering wheel.

True That! It also depends on your radio, I always hated the SL2 implementation of presets!

I agree. It kind of sucks except in the car and if using the remote with the home kit. I have the same presets on all my radios so the advantages and order are not specifically for the SL2. I keep the order the same on it just to be consistent.

Being consistent on every radio is smart! :)

No you don't! Click favorites and EVERYONE of your presets show on a single screen!

I think that favorites screen along with the Preview Card feature are two of the coolest features on the Skydock. So much easier to just hit the icon of the channel you want to move around. Makes it easier also for us former Sirius Subs who haven't memorized the XM channel scheme yet.

My presets haven't changed all that much in the 5 years I've had Sirius, except for keeping up with lineup changes along the way. 30 presets... 29 always stay the same, and the other one I rotate on a weekly basis among the remaining channels. Tomorrow, that spot will go to the Reggae channel... :cool:
