Slacker Next to Useless after 4.3

I was referring to the fact that it's a frequently suggested/attempted solution for a wide variety of issues. It's starting to sound like The IT Crowd... "Have you tried turning it off and on again?"
It's carryover from the desktop computer experience of the last decade.

I suggest you download Pandora One on your iPhone or equivalent and connect using Bluetooth. Pandora is far superior and FREE!

Unfortunately Pandora is not available outside the US, and besides that, cellular data rates in Canada are horrendous.

Did you reset? See if it improves service. Did for me. Hold both keys on wheel for a few seconds, until resets. Should get better service after.

I have never had to re-boot screens yet, but I'll try that. I did turn the quality down to "Medium" which helped a bit, but I do notice the slight drop in sound quality.

Slacker seems better for me after a reboot.
While they are relatively painless, having to do reboots to solve various little issues is not a good thing. Points to underlying instability in the code that will get worse over time as more features are included and other things are changed.
