WOW now that is freaking sweet. Thin, small, sort of like the Starbase, except full featured including the pause/rewind feature, as well as 30 song seeks and its a plug and play. NICE!!!

I like the illuminated Big Dog on the controls and the new trendy form factor. If this is Sirius' piece to compete with the Roady XT, The Roady could be in trouble.

dumb question, BUT, what about all of us that already have a car kit and home kit, and JUST want to buy the new model thats it, sans another car and home kit, will sirius just sell the reciever itself????? seems to me it would be alittle bit cheaper without the antenna and car lighter.

Jeff, do you know anything about that 'in-dash kit'? Looks to be another mounting option and looks to be be pretty much flush with with the dash.

It looks like a kit that will fit cars with factory double din radios. When you replace these radio you are left with a pocket, that kit looks like it will fit in the pocket giving you a snug in dash look. Nice!

it looks like he's touching the pause button. I couldnt think of how a touch screen would benefit the product (that and it would kill keeping price down). Slick little unit. cant wait to see em at the stores.

WOW!

I like this unit, and at a good price point as well! 30 S-seeks! Finally!


I just hope that this is not the entry level receiver. I would like to see one similar to the original starmate with 3G chipset making it thinner, and Direct Entry. No pause/rewind. No Game Alert/Game Zone. No jump button. Barebones and competitively priced at $69-$79 to compete with the Xpress and RoadyXT this holiday season.
