Hi All:
I have just had my second radio go dead in about 4 years. I contacted Sirius and they have agreed to waive the transfer since I am on a lifetime subscription. Anyway, I have two cars now with built in radios and will likely use this next one in the house and on my boat. The one that died recently on me is a Stratus so I am not keen on getting another one of those. I'm considering a starmate 5 but thought I'd get suggestions and opinions here before buying. I am only interested in Sirius radios.

Thanks for the help!

I'd get a Stiletto 2. (I had the 1, fairly good unit.)

Thanks XMguy. I'm not sure about the Stiletto due to cost and probably won't use all of the features. Looking more for a dock and play type radio.

How are the FM transmitters now? I have heard they aren't very good. Anyone have any opinions?
