The satellite refresh would be a easy process for those having difficulty refreshing the player at home/office.
It's my understanding that a satellite car dock would not "refresh" the same way the G2 does over WiFi or USB, as it would be a one-way signal. Basically, the car dock would be designed for truckers or people driving allot with no place to refresh. Essentially, the satellite signal is constantly sending data down to the device, music of all genres and types. The Slacker device then is monitoring the stream constantly, and grabs only what fits into your stations.
Hopefully they'll announce the (regular old) car dock at CES. If they can keep it $30 like the home dock that would be great too.
Best case scenario for me: Car dock with line out and power AND boombox. I have my G2 rigged up to my soloist through the line in and a cell phone charger to have the display always on. It looks a mess. Sounds good though
I had put my Soloist away when my office moved and I lost my west exposure at work rendering my Stiletto unusable. I had been searching around for a set of speakers to use my G2 with at work when I remembered the Soloist. Dug it out today, and have been listening to my Slacker in the den all afternoon. I will be taking it back into the office Monday! I had forgotten how well the Soloist sounds. Even took a break from and put the SL100 in and listened via wifi for a bit.
I ordered the slacker homedock from amazon
yesterday hope it does come in if not i can always
cancel the order
