Default Unresponsive Stratus Buttons

Installed my new SV3 Stratus yesterday and noticed the buttons are not very responsive. You have to push several times or very firmly to get a response. Kind of irritaing since it is easy to reprogram a preset when trying to make selections.

Has anyone else had this problem, is it just a design flaw or do I have a crappy unit?

mine was somewhat hard at first, you kind of have to hit the right angle. I solved it real easy by buying one of theold sirius one radio remotes off ebay.

Yea... The channel selectors are 'rocker style'... Channel 1 and 2 use the same button... 3-4, 5-6 etc... You push the buttons left for one channel and right for the other. This is clumsy.

I find them hard to press as well. I find I have to use my fingernail and push real hard.

The following remotes have worked with my stratus:
Starmate Replay
