Unhappy FM trasmitter

I'm having trouble with fm transmiting to radio with stilletto100 vehicle kit can't seem to find any station that is clear.I get alot of static. How strong of a signal should it put out ? How do i know if it is the vehicle kit or the stilletto itself ?

I do not own the stilleto but I can tell you that sirius has had to greatly reduce the output of the fm transmit options on ALL the newer recievers. The best way to avoid this is to "hard" wire your dock to your car radio....it is simple and your stilleto will still be portable.
Www.tssradio.com has the wire to fix the static problem. If you use the search function on this forum you should be able to find temporary....less effective solutions(IMO) to the static problem...
Good luck

If your car has a slot for a cassette, use a cassette adaptor to directly wire your satellite radio to your car radio.

Default FM Modulator

I had a regular Sportster that would broadcast to 3 different radios in my home from one spot. It blew out 2 weeks ago. Sirius sent me a new radio, an upgrade I thought, a Sportster Replay. The FM output is so bad, it does not work on the primary radio 8 feet away. It also would hardly work in my car without satic.

Called Sirius, said they would send a Another new one. I went to Radio Shack and the dude explained that they had dumbed down the units. He sold me an FM modulator for $29.99 that solved the problem. This works on DC and requires 2 aaa batteries. It also has a dc plug for the car lighter.

He also sold me a direct plug for my car which luckily has an aux input plug.

Ok I'm confused...he sold you an expensive fm transmitter AND an aux. In patch wire?
Well its to bad you didn't come here sooner....sounds like you bought a little more than you needed.
