Insane amount of "Updating Channels" on Satellite Radio

Good Morning!

My last G-Wagen a 2016, did not do this, nor did any of my last 15+ cars. Almost daily with my 2018 G63, upon the first start up, the music mutes and the Infotainment screen says UPDATING CHANNELS. What is annoying is sometimes I can drive miles before it completes, and then sometimes it is like 30 seconds.

Anyone else have this?

I get that too sometimes. Try turning it off and on again. Probably locating the satellite. I read those things are thousands of miles above earth.

Right? Ok, glad I am not alone. Thanks!

I know in the grand scheme of life and car ownership this is such a high quality problem to have...but I have never owned a car that updates channels so often and takes so damn long!
