Yesterday, my Starmate ST2 was docked in a boombax on my deck floor. The box was tipped and the display on the ST2 cracked and nothing is visible. I was surprised to discover that the ST2 is no longer available and the boombox is not compatible with any other model.

I assume that the display is not repairable. I was on hold with Sirius for 20 minutes before I gave up.

Is there any market where an ST2 might be available?

My ST2 gave up the ghost yesterday as well. Actually it had been a POS since I got in December 07. It would cut out every now and then, sometimes for a whole day. Always had great signal levels. When it worked, it was great, just getting it to work was a challenge.

Anyway, to get it to work, I had to plug/unplug a lot of times then it would finally kick in. Or, had to take it out of the cradle and bang it on the dash. :grin: I banged a bit too hard yesterday, now it just power cycles. :( Dead.

They are replacing it under warranty. Not sure if they are sending a ST2 or not. Will have to wait to see what surprise the FedEx guy brings.

See if they will replace it, or you can always try ebay.

Ebay usually has several at any given time.

They are on Sirius' on-line store site under "clearance" for $29.99.
