Default Finally!!!!

Well, after finally getting my Starmate 4 installed, I must say, I am quite impressed!

They did an awesome job with the installation. The antenna is on the roof of my car and it looks very clean. I was a bit disapointed that it wasn't permanently installed and just mounted to the windshield, but I'm getting kind of used to it. the interior of my car (2004 Cavalier) doesn't really have anywhere practical to put it since everything is on an angle. The vent by the windshield seems like the smartest place to put it...

My questions is this (don't flame me for being a n00b!), are the antennas built to last? Will I be able to go through car washes with it on? Will it stand up to the cold Canadian winters? Can my radio be left in the cold?

Overall, I'm quite impressed with it...the installation was very clean, it was done with the FM modulator and hard wired so I don't have to use those damn cigarette lighter adapter.

My biggest complaint about the Starmate 4 is this; why the heck isn't the remote lit up? Or at least have glow in the dark buttons? The remote is sweet (a little small), but it just doesn't make sence to me whatsoever as to why this was ommitted?

Default Antenna

My antenna is on top of my car but I have had no issues with going thru car washes bad weather, etc. You should realistically have no issues.
