Default s50 Dock Adaptor?

I am actually an s50 fan: one three-finger reset, one Best Buy warranty trade-in, but otherwise it meets all my listening/recording needs, and I really enjoy it. I would consider switching to Stilletto in the future, however, only to obtain bookmarking/auto-resume (the absence of which is the only day-to-day bane of my s50 existence), but I'm reluctant because I have invested in two s50 Car Docks, an s50 Home Dock, and an s50 Executive Dock.

MY QUESTION: Is there any chance that in the future Sirius, or some enterprising third-party could make available an adaptor that would make the Stilletto operable on the s50 Home and Executive Docks, and/or the s50 Car Dock? Hope this question is not too dopey to be asked. Thanks.

I don't think its "too dopey" of a question to ask, but it would be "too dopey" for any 3rd party mfg to create such a product for a product that has a limited market.

I know the S50 Home Dock had a Line In, you might be able to do something with this and feed the output of the headphones into it from a stiletto. There are some threads on getting an adapter to be able to plug the antenna directly into the base of the stiletto. In any case, It just is not cost effective when you can spend $70 for a home dock or car dock. less than an hour of an engineer would make it cost prohibitive. The most expensive part is the labor to install, not the dock itself.

I have two home docks and a car dock for the S50. I'm just giving them away. You might be able to get a few bucks on ebay, but nothing like what you paid for them. My advice, If you really want a stiletto, buy it. If you are happy with your S50 and it does everything you need, keep using it until it breaks.
