I've read this forum for quite a while now and noticed that most people talk about Slacker Radio with respect to the infotainment features. I have to say, because of this, Tune-In radio was a nice surprise for me. I realize the draw of no commercials and being able to select your artist/songs at will, but I also like that you can select radio stations from around the world, in many different formats! You name it, talk radio, international stations, whatever! I listen to my favorite radio stations in multiple states (including the town I grew up in as a kid) at least as much as I listen to Slacker. Even if you use it to stream your local radio stations ( the horror!), there is the added benefit if being able to pause and resume real time broadcasts. I find that Slacker can become tiresome after a time because I always have to to think "what do I want to hear now?" It a little distracting at times so I'll break it up with my favorite station 5 states away. I think they complement each other well. Am I the only one that loves Tune-In Radio?
