Overview: The SUPV1 car kit
includes everything you need to install the Sirius Sportster (item number 607SP4TK1
or 607SP5TK1), the Starmate Replay (item number 607ST4), or the Stratus (item
number 607SV3 or 607SV4TK1) in your
vehicle. The kit is compatible with the SP4, SP4R, SP3 and SP3B SIRIUS brand Plug & Play receivers, and it contains a docking cradle, mounting bracket, DC power cigarette lighter adapter, roof-mount antenna,
FM extender antenna and mounting hardware. The Sirius receiver (sold separately)
mounts firmly in the cradle, where antenna, power and signal connections are
Docking Station: Compatible Plug & Play receivers plug into the docking cradle and lock into place. The docking station mounts
to the supplied mounting brackets using 4 machine screws. On the back of the dock, there are
inputs for the antenna and DC power supply, a line output jack (3.5mm stereo mini-jack), a transmission antenna output and a locking switch.
Note: The locking switch is
used to attach the cradle adapter to the dock which allows ST or SV Sirius
Plug and Play receiver models to work with the SUPV1 car docking station.
Antenna: The low-profile Sirius
antenna has a powerful magnetic base that allows you to mount the antenna on the
roof or trunk lid of your vehicle. The antenna needs to be positioned in such a
way that it will be free of mechanical and line-of-sight obstructions. The
antenna' s dimensions are: Diameter = 2.221", H = 0.495", Cable Length = 21'.
Note: The attached
micro cable has a single SMB connector, which plugs into the cradle.
FM Extender Antenna: The FM
Extender Antenna is provided to maximize the audio quality of your Sirius radio
when using the built-in FM transmitter in your Sirius tuner to transmit the
audio to your vehicle's FM radio. The FM Extender Antenna should be placed
inside the vehicle in close proximity to the your vehicle's factory FM antenna.
The FM Extender Antenna has permanent adhesive mounts for installing it along
your vehicle's window. The Antenna portion measures 18" long and utilizes an
attached 18.5' cord to route the antenna through your vehicle. The cord has a
right angle mini-jack connector on the end of it that plugs into the FM-Out on
back of the car docking station.
Important Note from Crutchfield:
Current FCC rules limit the
transmission strength of wireless FM transmitters to a point where
transmission needs to take place very near your FM antenna. Sirius includes
extra wiring in order to address this issue, but Crutchfield strongly
encourages customers to use an auxiliary input, wired FM modulator, or
cassette adapter to ensure satisfaction with the performance and
cosmetics of this satellite radio.
- Suction Cup Mount: The
suction cup mount may be attached to any smooth surface. The mount has
an adjustable arm to position the dock which then can be locked into place.
- Vent Mount: This mount
attaches to your vehicle's air vents
