Who Has the XM Radio & Traffic/Weather Subscription?

Who has the Traffic/Weather subscriptions with their XM subscription on your Garmin and how do you like it? I just tried to get a trial period for my newly acquired 665 but no dice and I just want to know if it was worth it. I am mainly interested in if the GPS was reliable for avoiding traffic. I can still use my phone for planning around weather if I have to. Just let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

Came free with the CVO and the weather app was worth it's weight in the Rockies avoiding summer pop ups. I didn't realize the xm was triggering the traffic alerts, it was accurate.
Once the free trial ran out I waited till this summer season to add it back in. Probably will not get it again. I don't listen to the radio so it's expensive just to avoid storms, I run 2 lane whenever possible and it does not show traffic for back roads just construction.

I know this Ian probably and old thread but I just got it on my 17 RGS and there was no free trial period offered for it. Only the radio portion had a 3 month free trial. I don't know yet if I will keep it or not but I got it for this season and we'll see if it is worth it.

I had it on my 665 for a few years before I got the 590 and it worked great! Traffic was dead on, I would go a couple of hundred miles through Los Angeles traffic and arrive within minutes of what time it said I would arrive when I set up destination from my house. Most accurate of any GPS traffic I have ever had before or since

I have the weather option with the XM and the radar was dead on. I just returned from a 2800 mi road trip MD, WV, OH, IA, MI, MI-UP, Canada, NY and PA used a 590 Roadtech on the handlebar mount wired for direction prompts thru boom box (head set) and ran the weather radar on the screen while listening to XM, zoomed in on the radar while traveling and when it showed the shades of green and or orange / red overhead the actual weather conditions (rain) corresponded with the colors shown. I'm very pleased with the option.
