Default Starmate 4 improvements

I currently have the starmate replay, and was just looking at the new models Sirius has available. What benefits does the starmate 4 have over my current version?

I currently have it connected to my 2003 A4 radio via the aux input, and the sound quality is still a little below what i expected from satellite radio. Do the newer models improve on sound quality at all?

Default has most of the manuals online as PDF files.. You can download the Starmate 4 manual by clicking HERE .. You should be able to browse through it and figure out what's different

As far as sound.. All the radios sound the same. Satellite radio is digital, but it's not CD quality...

Really the only huge difference is that it has the universal docking feature now. Meaning no more plugging and unplugging wires to move it. Plus it does feature a 5 volt power supply, so it'll run cooler. Beyond that it's basically the same, plus it does have the crappier FM modulator with it.

TSS Taylor will become famous soon enoughTSS Taylor will become famous soon enough

I'd suggest you keep the Starmate Replay until it doesn't work anymore. You will not see a big difference with the Starmate 4.
