Agree with the masses
I must agree, XM/Sirius is doing a TERRIBLE job with this application. Here is how it could be EASILY improved: 1) Multitasking/4.1 iOS compatibility. I'd like to access the map or another application without killing the radio. 2) Add more button pages. Currently, you are limited to only 11 presets (one is locked into XM Previews, ugh). Why not allow multiple pages of presets if satellite sells itself on the plethora of content/stations available to you? Even better, let is label each page such as "Talk, Sports, etc." and have a full set of presets per page. 3) Quick Access to "Go To" channel by number. XM runs ads for other stations, but the XM SkyDock doesn't allow for easy navigation to these advertised stations. 4) Big button mode. Trying to read the screen and tap the correct button can be a real safety issue. How about (using multiple pages of buttons) a mode that uses fewer but larger buttons that are easier to navigate while driving? Anyway, those are my thoughts.

Where is previous or recall.
Ok I've waited long enough...why is a basic feature of every satellite radio missing from this programmable app. Create a previous/recall/last station button so when you make a wrong selection you can at least return to the station that was last playing.

Nice going XM
OMG multitasking already! So you update the other app to work with multitasking, but not the skydock. So since I have multiple radios I guess I'll cancel my $11 subscription and just use the online subscription for $2.99 (used to be free) instead. You guys need to get with the program and fix this.

Works great.
People complaining that the app doesn't support multitasking should complain to Apple, the reason it won't is because of the interface not because of the software. I've had the Skydock since it came out. And it's way nicer than a lot if the XM radios that I have used. When I bought it I had a 3GS and it worked great even after I upgraded to iOS 4 and shortly after I upgraded to the iPhone 4 and I have had no issues with the Skydock using any device with any iOS version. I have heard that the iPhone 4 doesn't work well with the bumper but that really isn't something that is up to XM to solve. With my 3GS, it didn't work well with my Incase Slider case either unless you removed the bottom. If your getting an iPhone 4 get one of the Incase Snap Cases, they're nice and thin and open along the bottom. I think it's a great solution for real XM. Hopefully we'll get multitasking soon.
