Thumbs up Car Dock rules (much better than S50 dock)

Ok so the best thing about the Stilleto dock is that you can remove the Stilleto without powering down or even putting to sleep. You can just grab the Stilleto and go. When you get back in the car, just pop in no problems.

It's great.

The only complaint is something Sirius can't help. The FCC made the fm transmitter very very weak. I know you can remedy this by buying additional equiptment but I have already spent so much.

With the S50 dock I was able to turn on every radio in my apartment and have a clear enough signal. Now I get nothing, unless I am about 5 ft. from the car dock.

Other than that the car dock is the best. Makes the Stiletto expierence much better in whole. I actually have my car dock in my apartment because if I travel I just take the Stiletto with me and use the headphones. Unless it's a far trip, then I transfer the car dock to my car. I would buy both the home and car dock but I don't mind wearing headphones on my short trips to campus. Plus I can just wear the headphones and connect to wifi when on campus. What a great device the Stiletto is!

So will it almost be a necessity to have the car kit hard wired? I currently have a sportster replay and the FM transmitter on that thing is excellent. But I purchased that over a year ago too, i assume before the FCC put the clamps down.

I agree with you, I love being able to just remove the Stiletto from the home dock or car dock and just go portable with it.

In all fairness to the S50 dock, the reason you could not remove the S50 is because part of the electronics for sat reception was in the media player portion and part in the dock. So when you removed one from the other the unit shut down. The Stiletto is a fully self contained sat tuner and the docks are just docks, so it has no such limitations.

I have always maintained the the majority of the issues that the S50 has had since it was released was related to this ill fated 2 piece design.
