are there any xm radios that show the complete artist and song titles like sirius radios or do they still cut some of the titles off?

Thank You,G

For the most part, they all do now days. The older ones are limited to 16 letters. New ones show the whole title...:)

Thanks for the replys. I was thinking about getting a xpress rc and was hoping that it would show complete titles and artists.
Thats the one thing i always liked about sirius best.

Thanks Again, G

The XpressRC will work just fine with the longer song and artist titles.

I installed XM into my Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD using the Pioneer XM module and it only shows 16 characters. It's no different than the XM factory head unit that came with the car.

All the regular portable XM radios show the whole title and artist name. I just wanted something built in with no wires and nothing to plug in.

I think it depends on the designers of the radio in question. If they are concerned about screen real estate they may choose to use only the 16 characters.
