2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: 4 Banks of Sat Radio

November 17, 2010

One of the many surprisingly good features of our long-term 2010 Mitsu Outlander GT is that it has 4 banks of satellite radio presets. At 6 presets each, that's 24 stations, more than enough for just me. And perhaps adequate for a family of drivers. Most cars just have 2 banks of presets. Is that enough for most people?

The rest of the Outlander's radio controls are also easy to use, unlike some of our other long-term cars. Audi's MMI radio control in our A4 is particularly...bad.

I written before that I love sat radio and prefer it to iPod because the selection is greater and there's an element of surprise. I love pleasant surprises. But I'm still not sure I would pay for sat radio, even with its low monthly subscription fee.

How about you? Have you dropped in-car sat radio for the MP3 player?
