Default Not happy with Monsoon XM radio

I was not impressed by the sound due to the lack of a real subwoofer. Also the radio does not display CD names and the XM radio does not even display the song names just the XM station name.

You can see the XM song name and artist. Push in the Select **** (the one just below and to the right of the volume).

I bet you guys open you xmas presents and try to put your things together without reading the directions, huh? LOL!!!

I got this really great CD from my Pontiac dealer that goes through all the features and functions of the GXP... I have used it and would be glad to copy it and send it to anyone that needs it...
