My old Airware and the Tao have a mode where they would display nothing, stocks, or sports. I think the XMP3 may have a simular setting. If you are stocks you may have hit that button to switch.

Have you added the teams you want the extra info for? :scratch:

Menu > Settings > Info Extras > Sprots

Then add your favorite teams :)

To make sure you alerts are on...

Menu >Settings > Edit Alerts > All Alerts: On

I hope that helps. ¡Viva España! :party:

like i said it worked for a day, but now it does not give me the option to select sports. only stocks. all alerts are on. on the main screen, bottom it says to add sports go to Menu > Settings > Info Extras > Sports
but it just has stocks.

My Tao has always on occassion said 'no info available'. But it comes back in a little while. I don't have an XMP3 but it seems odd that it would be a defective unit given it has happened on 2 different units. Are you getting terrestrial coverage or sat signal? Is it docked? These may play a factor or there could be a setting somewhere on the XMP3 which turns it on or off.

It goes down every now and again. And it is currently down on my Tao. So that would explain it. You could call XM.

Most XM radios do. Even my old RoadyXT had it.
I'm not as experienced with XM units as I am with Sirius ones. I never really even touch Cpt. BMF's old unit :)hhh:) so I'm not familiar with all of the features. I actually just usually stays parked at 202.
