If my home dock goes bad. Is it ok to use my spare car dock as a replacement if I use the AC power supply that come with the home dock in the house? The car dock I am talking about is from a stratus 5 and a starmate 5.

Thanks
John

Absolutely John. Almost all of the newer Docks for SIRIUS XM are semi interchangeable for car and home. Home Docks don't have mounting options for the car though and are designed to sit on a flat surface. But the guts of the dock is the same, takes the same antenna connections and power, etc.

I've used my S2 home dock in rental cars several times, sometimes plugging in a spare antenna and sometimes just playing recorded material through an aux input.
