    Do you have to buy that $250 dollar antenna just to get the music stuff. I have no need of weather and traffic, I just want to hear the music.

    Yes, you need the GXM-30 puck which basically is the XM service all built in, but the GPS is able to extract it. The XM service is tied to the puck, not the GPS. if you have multiple GPS's that can accept the antenna, you can move it between different GPS units.

    However, it's frequently available for under $150 and sometimes even less here on ADV if you get lucky and find inmates selling one.

    So are you able to view weather radar on the 2730? Even if it's only every 15 minutes? I know it can't do Nexrad, but can it do radar summary with Skywatch for example? Anybody got weather radar on a 2730? thanks
