Default trying to find Sportster IR review


I have searched for a while trying to find the review for the Sportser IR, but can not find it. My Blaupunkt has finally given me enough problems that I am returning it to Crutchfield and I am getting a credit to get a new unit. Since the Blaupunkt was almost as expensive as the Sporster IR, I figure I might as well just spend the extra $20 and get it, but I was wanting to hear some feedback or read the review to make sure that it is doing ok, since it has only been out a short time. I thougt the Blaupunkt was going to be a good one, but after having it for 3 months and joining this forum, I found out it had problems. Now after having it for 7 months, I am ready to give up on it as it gets worse every day with dropouts.

If anyone can direct me to the review or give me their opinion on it (if you have it), please do.

I bought the Starmate for my wife's car and I really like that one, but since it only cost $99 andthe Blaupunkt originally cost $149, I think it would be silly to get another starmate and have credit left over when the IR seems so appealing and is just a little bit more.


Have a great day.

I love mine. I use the record feature a lot.....more than I thought I would. I previously had a standard Sportster, so the upgrade was really for the record feature and blue display (I hated the orange/green display of the standard Sportster). It's a good buy.

Thank you for the link. That is exactly what I was looking for. It did not come up when I was using the search feature (or at least on the first page since that message was all the way back in early June).

I knew you or DAB would send me in the right direction.

Also, thank you to the others who let me know how they liked theirs. I will be going to pick one up next week from Crutchfield when I return my Blaupunkt to them.

I have been impressed with CMA though and all future purchases will go to them. I will be getting a red antenna soon to match my Monte Carlo SS.

Have a great day.
