On average, how much data usage does the Sirius/XM app use?

    I've got the unlimited data plan so I'm not really concerned but for those who use the app, is it a data hog or is it no more than what Pandora or Netflix uses?

    I don't recall exactly but it's in the range of Pandora- want to say 30meg/hr (although I think slightly less). The app does seem to use more battery than other radio apps.

    Netflix is in a totally different league due to the huge (relatively) amount of data required to transmit video.
