i am not good with car electronics either. i was able to do it easily. i ordered the kit from Crutchfield and they gave great directions. i just ordered a sportster 4 from TSS and i expect the same easy instructions in there too.

You plug it into the satellite radio in the audio out. And yes, that is the correct link from wal-mart. It works really good. I also think there's a way in which you can use a headphone jack to put into the audio out and it also aides the horrible transmitter on the radio. Now as to which method would work better, I don't know because I've never tried the headphone thing that many people have mentioned. To me, the belkin fm transmitter would seem to work best.

I just got a Sportster Replay R2 from CC last week and also have static problems using the FM transmitter. I originally purchased the Starmate 4 which was worthless using the FM transmitter. The Sportster replaced my Pioneer Airware (XM) to make the switch to SIRIUS. I didn't have these problems with the Airware and I frequently change vehicles with my job so the hardwire/FM relay mod is not an option. Do the aftermarket FM transmitters as suggested in the previous post work better than the internal FM transmitters?

Yes they do. You'll be surprised.
