Default Pick my radio. please :)


Must have replay
Must have good FM modulation
Must be sold @ best buy or circuit city

Though about getting starmate reply, starmate 4, sportster 3, sportster 4.

I might have it installed at some point but will be using FM modualtion for next few months.

All of the above mentioned units are good, except for the fact of needing a good FM modulator. All of the newer units from Sirius have weak FM mods, they are now "FCC compliant". So your best bet is to buy a wired FM modulator relay for $20 and hook that up, then you should be good to go. Hope that helps and welcome to Sirius Backstage!

Late edit: you may want to stick with the Sportster 4 or Starmate Replay 4, as they are cooler running units (they only need 5V of power) and the Replay 4 is a true plug n play. No wires to unplug like in the old Replay ST2.

The FM mods really don't sound all that great so the sooner you can get something wired in, the better.

I've got the sportster 4 and love it, so thats what I would suggest to go with. fm modulator was very weak as mentioned above, so I used a wired fm modulator and all is well
