This new Xpress isn't behaving like my old one. It always starts on channel 1 rather than whatever it was on when the car was turned off and it takes several minutes after coming on to find all the stations (ie, things like 100/101 are "not available" for 2-3 minutes).

Ideas?

Do you let the car turn it off upon shutting off the engine? If so, try turning off the XM unit before that. Not sure if that will work but worth a try.

I did try it and it did work. Also, it seems to only "forget" the channels when we start the car in the garage. Yesterday, it remembered all day the channel it was on while we were driving around looking at new cars. Not sure what the deal is.
Your old one remembered it was subscribed. Now that you have powered it off normally, your new one will too. It shouldn't be an issue anymore even if you just turn the car off now.
