Yeah no replay on Sirius units. The SiriusXM Units will still have it. As in the Onyx Pro (fairly certain)

I don't want to speculate and overpromise anymore than I already have.
Glad that it looks like replays are still likely for the SXM models in the future.
With all of the great stuff the Lynx does, I find that I mostly use live satellite and replays anyway. Sad to see all of the bells and whistles go away. It was mostly just nice knowing that they were there.

I expect the Onyx Pro to have a large touch screen and smart-radio features like voice-controlled audio playback, My SXM and the ability to use a smartphone as an Onyx remote. Throw in multiple backlight colors and a mixtrax option for up to five presets.

All this is straight off the top of my head. I have no crystal ball knowledge about Satrad 3.0.

This is really setting up everyone for disappointment Ha

Figures some consumers get use to some sweet devices and the company gets rid of some of them. I'm going to stick with the Lynx as long as I can until mine dies out and as I don't plan on buying P2P units anymore. It pretty much the smartphones and satellite in the car are the future.

Well for people who own or want to purchase a Lynx, you know their wont be a better radio produced any time soon or ever unless the Onyx Pro is really really something. In the past, it was always a question of buying a current model or waiting to see what the next line of radios would be like. Now I really like my Edge. I think it will last a very long time but would be disappointing if it dies out. Which still poses whether the Onyx Pro will be better since it could have a better display and carry Xtra channels. Considering that SIRIUSaboutXM posted that Pink Floyd will be on Xtra channels soon but Taylor is posting the Lynx, Edge and 2.0 tuner will be discontinued by the end of the year, it would be a good guess that the Onyx Pro and the 3.0 tuner will carry Xtra channels. But it sounds like I would still know what the Onyx Pro will cost and be like before the Edge is discontinued.

It's also more fun to speculate what is going on with SXM programming and radios than what is going on at my workplace :jj:

FYI, TSS Radio got the Lynx back in stock this afternoon. I ordered mine and got a shipping email with a tracking number less than ten minutes later!

It's time to finally use my first lifetime transfer from my PNP300 that I activated more than eight years ago. I was waiting for the Lynx replacement, but since it doesn't look like it will be coming this seems like the best radio to move my lifetime sub to now that I can transfer it to an XM radio. I can't wait to hook it up on Monday. I have been using a skydock in the car I drive most of the time and I'm trying to figure out how to have both hooked up since the skydock is a great dock for my iPhone when I'm using it for navigation and to listen to other music services.

I received the In Stock email from TSS Radio today and was kicking myself because I had paid more for one on Amazon when I tired of waiting for it to be in stock. Got it too late in the day to get on my PC to see about transferring my lifetime subscription over to SiriusXM (pain to do via tablet from my girlfriend's home with wonky wifi).

I know that they were, but then I saw that earlier this week (Thursday) that they were back in stock.
I think I'm at the point of replacing my SL100 for one of these...

They can usually set one aside for you if they get more in.
I still love my Lynx. It's too bad that it was too expensive for SXM to produce.

I just need something better than my S100. If I run (really run) from my office to my car - I have just enough juice to keep the power on with all 5 batteries that I have...

I think the Lynx looks like it has what I want

It's doubtful that we'll see a radio with this many features for quite some time. Between the cost to make them and the new internet services that SXM is pushing, it seems likely that see how much they can leverage the web services before they start investing in full featured portables again. But it's just a guess on my part.

Hectic - your points are why I think it's time.
I have my lifetime and I see that refurbed models are available on the SXM website. Not sure that I want to go that route though...

Buying used radios just seems kinda like buying used socks to me. Sure it'll work, but new is just more comforting.

I agree, but my Stiletto is like a sock with holes in all of the toes... :) I need something a little more practical.
