Technology is ridiculously awesome. . . .except for current version!!!!!
Update for version 2.1.8. FIX THE APP ALREADY WITH THE 'DOCK NOT DETECTED' ERRORS!!!!!! This garbage has been going on for like 2 versions and 2.1.8 claims to have it fixed. Right. Now it happens MORE THAN EVER. Sometimes I have to unplug the phone and plug it in again 3 or 4 times to get it to work. Not fun or safe to do while driving. This is an incredible app. They did a great job with the interface. Works great for me. The Skydock itself has a great FM transmitter (much better than the MyFi) if you don't have an aux input for your car stereo. Skydock also allows you to play your iPod music over your car stereo, too. Channel changing is very quick, again, much better than the old MyFi portable radio. Overall, I'm VERY pleased. I highly recommended the app AND the Skydock (REQUIRED TO USE THIS APP) especially if you already have an older XM portable radio that you were thinking about replacing.

No power to skydock
Exact same problem as Scott below. Power is on and I can play music but no XM. Finally got us the multi-tasking we've been waiting so long for, but this version shouldn't have been approved. Way too buggy, and now no radio at all. If others are having this problem, let me try and help because i found a partial solution last night on my own. If you reset the network on your iphone, the radio should power up. If you do have to call tech support, good luck. You must call XM customer service and not Sirius. I waited for Sirius customer service for 20 minutes before being told the Skydock was an XM product and they couldn't service it despite their name being all over the app. After being advised by to them to erase and reinstall the app about 6 times and replacing all of my hardware, this problem was "escalated" but I never heard from them again. They're not helpful at all. I continue to have the problem from time to time but a network reset does allow me to listen to radio until problem reoccurs.

Skydock and 4th gen issues
Have the skydock and was using with 1st gen itouch, no problems. Just got the new 4th gen itouch, and it worked for 3 days, then stopped. Error says that it "couldnt power on skydock". It has power and I can play music through it, but no xm. Anyone else have issues?

DO NOT UPGRADE
I was a happy user of this app until version 2.1.8. App now fails to load. Repeated re-installations do not help. XM customer support is swamped, and after long waits they finally advise users to wait 10 minutes then reload the app and then try to access via Safari browser?!? Obviously the app is faulty and support is worse than non-existent!
