I got a free trial period of Starlink. I can't find much in it that I care about. I sure don't
want to listen to Howard Stern. But, since it came included, I was just wondering what is left if
I turn it off. Do I still have a FM/AM radio. Can I still play CD's? There is nothing in the apps
that I need or want. Does my hands free phone still work? Starlink lists 8 ways to make a phone
call. Who needs it? It's confusing. I wonder how many cars run off the road trying to make a call
with Starlink? Is there a way to just turn it off for a while so I can see the difference? Do I really
need a program that take 224 pages to explain how to use it?

Actually starlink doesn't cover XM radio (satellite radio)
It does the call center for roadside and emergency. It also does some other minor stuff but that's the jist.

XM is a separate company and has a separate subscription.

As for what you'll lose. Nothing. Just the call center service
