    Equipment to be go from Truck to Home

    I called the support line with some interesting information. Hope someone can offer advice.

    My thoughts:
    I needed this kit for a tractor that I use time-to-time so I don't want to leave any equipment in the cab where someone else could take it. Also not able to mount an antenna outside. Then I wanted to be able to use it at home as well. So I thought I could buy the following:
    - Buy the Onyx Home Kit so I can use it at home or outside
    - Get a cigarette power adapter for the tractor

    I was told this wouldn't work by Sirius Support:
    - docking stations can't be switched with a different power adapter (i.e. going from a typical power plug to cig lighter). So I need to buy both the home and car kit.
    - home kit antenna will not work for reception in a car so I also need the home and car kit. (though I can't mount the antenna outside and need it inside)
    - home kit will not work on a dash since it has to be strapped down. (to me I don't see why you need the receiver strapped down as she's maybe just reading what she's been trained to say)

    Any advice?

    Well, it is true that you need a separate dock for indoors and out.

    What about subscribing and listening online via a smartphone? Do you want music or do you listen to talk shows? You can download lots of programming and take it on the go where you dont have wi-fi.

    Its either that, or buy a couple of docks.
