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.)

1 Hopper 3, 2 Joey 2.0 clients. Currently using EA2 (eastern arc sats). Dish Sub since March 2016.

Former DirecTV sub from 2008-2015.

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?
