Default PNP (Sportster) Storage?

Hey,

Just picked up the Sportster IR & Boombox a couple weeks ago...great so far!

I use it in my house and in a couple of cars we have. In the house I just keep it in the boombox at all times, but when I travel back home in the car I ran into an issue where I had to throw the Sportster, Cradle, Antenna & Cig Lighter Power cord all in a bag when I wasn't in the car. Just wondering how you guys store your Sportster, or PNP, when you're not using it? Really, i just want a case or soft bag that I can store the PNP unit it so that I don't scratch up the face. The Antenna, Cradle & Power Cord I can just bundle up and throw in a bag...but I'd rather not make a habit of throwing them all together or I know that the face of the Sportster will get scratched up. Just wondering if you guys had any ideas!

Also, anyone who has the Sportster Replay...do you find your antenna cord that connects to the cradle is really hard to unplug?

Maybe just put the radio in a zip-lock bag with a cloth in it? That would be a quick cheap way. Wal-Mart should have some type of little soft bag that you could use. Maybe even look in the purse section for one. Just guessing on that one.

I use a camera case. There are all shapes and sizes that should supply what you want.

I would suggest buying a few more car adapters as needed.

It seems to be a pain in the ass moving all that stuff around.

That is what I did, found a digital camera case at Target on a closeout for $3.99. It holds the remote and the Avox unit. I haven't bought one yet for the Sportster R yet.

Moving power, cradles and antennas seems like a lot of work. I wire my car cradles up directly and just move the unit. New cradles are money well spent. I have the antenna connector break on my old Avox unit, I don't care to unplug them and I run all of the wires as hidden as possible.

Thanks for the tips...I'll look for some cheap camera cases good idea. And if that fails, or until I find a good one a cloth bag is a good way to go.

I'd definitely look for another cradle and/or install the cradles in the car, but I only use them in the car one or two weekends a month when I drive 4 hours home...and I could drive one of two cars home so that's why I need to have the ability to quickly install it in one of two cars. And since it's only a few hours I really don't mind the messy look of just hooking it up in a few minutes.

Get a small bottle of Crown Royal. Drink the Crown (or give it to me ) & put the Sportster in the purple bag.
