- PowerConnect: A PowerConnect FM transmitter
and cigarette lighter adapter are included which allow the Stratus
7 receiver to wirelessly transmit audio to your vehicle's in-dash
head unit over an FM frequency. You can choose from any FM frequency

can quickly access the station that gives you the best reception when
traveling. The PowerConnect FM transmitter and cigarette lighter
adapter plug into the power port of the included vehicle dock and
the cigarette lighter or 12-volt accessory port of your vehicle.
- Auxiliary: The vehicle dock has a mini-jack
audio output (3.5mm) to connect the unit directly to your in-dash

mini-jack cable. When using the line output jack, you can adjust the
audio level to match your head unit's other sources.
- FM Direct (optional): The FM Direct Adaptor (item number
sold separately) connects directly in-line with your vehicle's existing
AM/FM antenna input (motorola) and the vehicle dock FM output (2.5mm).
