The status screen is the same using USB as it is using WiFi. I've updated my Slacker using both methods and I haven't noticed a difference in the time it takes to update.It all depends on how many channels you've selected to add to the Slacker G2 initially. But I can tell you that once you do this future updates are much, much shorter.
I've never done by via the USB, so I am not sure if it has an indicator like the Wifi version does. But it will show you the status of each channel as it updates. Does anyone know if it also does this when refreshing via USB?
Thank you, I wondered as I had never used the USB method, but you really helped with rather their was any difference in refreshing via USB or Wifi in terms of speed.The status screen is the same using USB as it is using WiFi.

The time to refresh is almost exactly the same for me at both work and home with both USB and Wi-Fi Refresh.Some users have expressed the initial load to be rough around the edges via usb connection. Have suggested wifi is very clean on the intial music load, but the usb works better once you get beyond the first music load up.
I finally did it last night just to try it out. My issue with it is that basically you can't do anything with the device while it is refreshing. I think I'll stick to my wifi updates at least I can continue to listen to it while it refreshes.I have been a Wi-Fi refresher from the start. I think it's great and so easy. I edit my stations. Recharge and my new settings are ready to go.
I went with the 4gb 25 stations. I mean I can't imagine using more than that. But in reality it will be more like 10 or 15. Which will leave plenty of extra space for your channels to get bigger over time.1) What G2 did you get the larger or smaller one? Do you need the larger one.
2) I notice that on my station it stats with the same songs (not in the same order) when I start it up. Is that normal?
I tried to edit my station and I get an error, anyone else having issues?
How are things coming along Kevin ?
