Hi, I just purchased a model 3 and I love it. I do have some issues though with the Bluetooth audio quality. I have a Pixel 3 XL and I subscribe to Google Play, using the high quality streaming option. However, when I compared that to the Slacker audio quality, there is literally no comparison. The Slacker is way better. I also asked my father in law to listen as well since he was an executive at GM for years on the audio team, and he agreed immediately. I know that Bluetooth compresses a lot but the difference was remarkable.
So, I began looking into Slacker options, and I couldn't figure out if it's worth buying the premium plans (either $3 or $10 a month depending on if you want on demand or not). Is the Slacker on the model 3 already one of the premium packages or do I have to purchase it? And if I do purchase it, will I even notice the difference since the streaming rate on the Model 3 is limited (I forget how much).
I like Google play, and I have the family plan so my son and wife and father in law use it to so I would hate to cancel it (and Slacker doesn't offer family plans), but it's literally a waste of money listening to audio BT in the Model 3. Any other options?
