Default Starmate 4 configuration

Hi guys and happy Thanksgiving to those who qualify!!!

I'm about to loose my second Starmate Replay over an unsoldering power jack and I would like to know the connection configuration of the Starmate 4 without the cradle.

So basically I'd like to know if the Starmate 4 unit has antenna, power and audio jacks that I can use "on the fly" or does it have a custom connector that requires a cradle for anything to happen?. As I typically use my radios portable, that information would come handy and determine whether I'll resort to soldering or buying a new radio.

I wouldn't want to buy the Starmate 4 and have to carry it along with its cradle and have this clunky assembly become loose after a while.

Please don't come back with those S50s and Stiletos. I ain't ready for those just yet!

I'm sorry man, but the ST4 won't work unless it's in the dock. I know that one of the new radios (Sirius InV SV2) has an on-the-fly option where it does not need a dock. The dock is a little complicated because it has to convert a series of wires just like the old docks do like for the PNP3 & Sportster (Original & Replay)
