The Sirius Sportster 5 is a flagship, multi-color satellite radio receiver released as a color-screen counterpart to the original Sportster 4. Designed to be mounted onto a cars dashboard, the receiver offers a customizable full-color display with background colors that can be adjusted to match the vehicle’s interior décor and lighting scheme. It includes 30 presets for favorite channels; access to information such as channel, artist, song, signal strength, and time; and another upgrade from the Sportster 4—the ability to pause/rewind up to 60 versus 44 minutes of live broadcast. Not only does the Sportster 5 offer more functionality, but many users swear it performs better as well.
