Sportster 4 Shipping This Week

Sunday, May 28, 2006

GSI is told by a source at Directed Electronics (the maker of the Sportsters, Starmates, and S50 radios), that the new Sportster 4 SP4-TK1 will be shipping out to retailers this week. It is important to note the Monday is a federal holiday and nothing will ship.

We are also told to look for the unit at smaller retailers and online stores first, because the big guys have more of a supply chain that adds a few days.

The new sportster will retail fro around $170.00 and WILL NOT have a rebate at first.

More info on the unit:

* A replay feature that allows users to pause, rewind and replay up to 44
minutes of live SIRIUS programming, and play back individual selections
from the buffer

* SIRIUS Game Zone(TM) that lets users select favorite teams from each of
the sports leagues, including NFL, NBA and NHL, and view scores on one

* SIRIUS Game Alert(TM) that advises users when their favorite teams begin
playing and when scores change

* MEMO with S-Seek Alert stores names of favorite artists, songs and
programs, and alerts users when playing on any channel

* Program alert that allows users to program the Sportster4 to switch to a
selected channel at a specific time

* One-touch Jump(TM) that takes users to and from their local SIRIUS
traffic and weather broadcast or any favorite SIRIUS music, sports or
talk channel with the touch of a button

* A new vehicle dock with an auxiliary input for MP3 players

Sportster4 also boasts 30 presets, parental controls, a real-time satellite updated clock with 7 times zones, auto shutdown and sleep timer. Sportster4 includes the receiver, remote control, vehicle docking station, suction cup and vent clip mounting options featuring a standard AMPS bolt pattern and auxiliary input for MP3 players, vehicle power adapter and magnetic ultra low profile antenna. A boombox and other new accessories will be available this summer.

All I want is a 'last channel' button. Like if I am listening to H100 and then I get a song alert for something on Octane and then I want to go back to H100.

I would find this a lot more usefull then the jump button.

Holy crap, I didn't know it could do that!! I just tried it on my Streamer GTR and it worked! Just when I thought I knew everything that the receiver does.

You learn something knew everyday. Thanks Steven.
