    When I start my commute I'll turn on the radio and push the pause button straight away. I let it queue up the full 20 minutes and then start playing. Whenever there's a commercial break I hit to skip button to skip ahead two minutes and continue listening. I haven't heard a radio commercial in almost 18 months :D

    Just wondered if anyone else used it that way.

    Yes that does wonders to traffic reports.

    Humm, I have to say, I never listened to RADIO (AM, FM, XM) in my PRIME. I will remember that trick if I ever find a good station to tune in.

    I occasionally use the pause feature. I don’t use the skip-back feature often though, because it goes back waaaaay too far. I don’t remember how far back it does but IIRC it’s something like 4 minutes. I would use it a lot more if it were more like 15 seconds forward and back.
