Hello everyone. First off let me apologize for my ignorance. I've never used Pandora and only know its a music app used on phones. I've been car shopping and a Mazda CX-5 I'm interested in advertises Pandora internet radio integration. My current car has SiriusXM and I do use it a lot, but it doesn't need a phone to work. When Pandora comes standard with a car's infotainment system does it need a phone connected to work? Or is it stand alone like SiruisXM? Also, I know that when I'm driving cross country in the West far from towns my SiriusXM works fine since its satellite. Will Pandora in a car depend on proximity to cell towers to work? Thanks - I just want to know if the Mazda's lack of SiriusXM (which seems weird these days) is going to limit me listening to music in far flung places.
