The publicly available Green Bank Telescope \textbfPRebiotic \textbfInterstellar \textbfMOlecular \textbfSurvey (PRIMOS) conducted towards Sgr B2(N) provides high resolution, high-sensitivity observations with near-continuous frequency coverage from 300 MHz - 50 GHz. Of the eleven new molecular detections in the last year, five (45%) are a direct result of the PRIMOS observations. Further, these observations have recently been used to detect the predicted, but previously unobserved, J = 1-0 and J=2-1 transitions of the newly detected l-C3H+ ion. Here, we discuss the analysis of these transitions, as well as recent work to extend the PRIMOS observations to three new regions of interest: VY Canis Majoris, IRC+10216, and NGC 2023. Finally, we highlight the utility of cm-wave surveys in new molecular detections, as well as the value of publicly-available surveys in the approaching era of data-enabled, analysis-limited astrochemistry.
