SIRIUS SADV2 Vehicle Kit
SIRIUS Dock & Play PowerConnect vehicle kit
Our take on the SIRIUS SADV2 Vehicle Kit by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
This handy car dock includes the SIRIUS|XM PowerConnect system to deliver your favorite satellite radio programming through any FM radio. You can also use the included cable to connect through your stereo's auxiliary input, if it has one.
The antenna attaches to your roof with its magnetic base, while the PowerConnect adapter plugs right into your car's cigarette lighter or power port to provide power to the radio. Color-coded connectors on the dock make installation a breeze. SIRIUS radio sold separately.
I love the dock and play. It allows me to listen to satellite radio in both of my cars and my home (with a portable boom-box) while paying for only one subscription fee. And with the radio-specific interconnect added, all the controls are through your headunit, making it more convenient to use.

SIRIUS SADV2 Vehicle Kit Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The SIRIUS Dock & Play PowerConnect Vehicle Kit (SADV2) includes everything you need to install your SIRIUS Starmate, Stratus, or Sportster plug & play tuner into your second vehicle. The vehicle kit contains a vehicle docking station, window/suction-cup mounting bracket, dash-mount bracket, DC power supply/FM transmission antenna (cigarette lighter adapter), and roof-mount magnetic antenna. Your SIRIUS Tuner slides down into the vehicle docking station, which then mounts to either of the supplied brackets with four machine screws. The dash-bracket's self-adhesive pad holds the unit firmly to the dash or the suction-cup mount attaches to your windshield.
Compatibility: The SIRIUS Dock & Play PowerConnect Vehicle Kit (SADV2) is compatible with the following SIRIUS plug & play tuners (as of 1/26/2012).
- Starmate: 4, 5, 8
- Stratus: 3, 5, 6
- Sportster: 5, 5i
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: 2.195"
- Height: 0.445"
- Cable Length: 21'
Note: The attached micro-cable has a single SMB connector, which plugs into the vehicle dock.
PowerConnect Transmitter: The FM modulator built into the Stratus 6 retransmits the SIRIUS signal it receives via the PowerConnect power supply, to be tuned by your existing radio.
Dash Mount: The supplied dash-mount bracket features a self-adhesive pad, which will mount the vehicle dock securely to the dash. The bracket features a ball socket joint, allowing you to adjust the mounting angle.
Window Mount: The supplied suction-up mount bracket allows you to mount the receiver and the vehicle dock securely to your windshield. The bracket then allows you to angle the Stratus 6 up or down.
Optional Pro-Fit Brackets: The car kit docking station is directly compatible with the Legend series (adjustable ball/socket joint) Pro-Fit Vehicle-Specific Mounts (VSMs). When used with the Pro-Fit easy swivel adapter (042EZ1026, sold separately), the docking station will work with the standard (fixed) Pro-Fit VSMs, as well.
Note: Please, check the Crutchfield Car Selector for a Pro-Fit VSM that's compatible with your vehicle.
Connections: The vehicle docking station has the following connections:
- Power: Input for included supplied cigarette lighter adapter (5 volts DC/1.5 amps).
- Audio Output: 3.5mm stereo mini-jack line output.
- FM Output: 2.5mm sub-mini jack FM output for use with an optional wired FM direct adapter (607FMDA25, sold separately).
- Antenna: Single SMB connector for attaching supplied SIRIUS antenna.
