SiriusXM Presets 8.4AN

Hey guys. My 14 Limited is being built right now, and I'm wondering about the SXM presets.

According to the manual, it looks like I can only set 12 presets in SXM mode. Is there an SXM2 mode (similar to FM2, etc), that would allow me to add an additional 12 presets?

I'm coming from a Tahoe which can save 36 presets, so I'm used to having a good amount of them (especially with SXM with close to 200 channels).

Thanks!

I guess I'll have to curb my preset use. Thanks for the answer!

Presets

You may be limited to the number of presets, but you can change channels by voice command pretty easily. "Push the button on the steering wheel and say "Satellite 101" and it will go there.

I also thought 12 presets wasn't very many. Seems like they could fix that with an update.

What is nice is you can delete the stations you will never listen to. So with the stations deleted, you can just scroll up or down and the stations you don't want to listen to will get skipped.

I thought 12 was not enough when I first got my 8.4AN, but the one good thing you can do is exclude channels you don't want to scan through (eg, sports / news / foreign language etc). I have opted to skip all but about 40 channels and put 6 presets in to separate those so I can scan through to find something I want quite quickly.
