Default Car Dock Issue

Since the update, my car dock doesn't work properly. I have attempted to try different things but cannot nail down a static issue. When mounting the SL100 since the update it takes time before the dock will actually turn on. I can see that the stiletto is charging and has a signal but the unit itself will not light up nor will the remote or fm modulator work. After some time which varies between 5-20 minutes the unit will light up and work. This has happened since I ran the update last week, and had no errors or problems before this. The update is the only thing I can think of... Any ideas?

I also have a hissing issue while in the car docking station. It hisses no matter what FM station I use. I have tried a couple of antennas and it still hisses. When I take it out of the dock and use the antenna headset, it works great other than the headset sucks.

Default Hissing

You will have that problem unless you install the FM Direct Adapter for it. The FM modulator inside the kits are just not strong enough even if the satellite antenna is right next to the car antenna. The FCC has greatly reduced the FM Mods strength. It's sad but true.

On another thread, someone asked if my stereo has an aux spot and it does. He suggested getting a 1/8" to 1/8" mini aux. cable to connet it directly to the stereo and docking station. Do you think this will work to relieve the hissing?

If the hissing is actually FM static yes. If the hissing is engine noise then NO, you would need to get a ground loop isolater to take care of it.

I bought the cable at Radio Shack and it made things 95% better. There is some very slight hissing in the background, but so much better than before, I can put up with what is there.

Great, I am glad that worked out for you. Now maybe you can enjoy it a bit more.

I went for a drive this evening and the reception was great the entire time. I wish they'd work on some new antenna headphones now.
