Doesn't play in the background.
This is a great app; my only wish is that it could play in the background while I use a GPS navigator or other app, like iTunes will do. I know this is an Apple thing, but switching back and forth between the two is annoying (Iike missing the end of a good Ron and Fez bit), and could be considered dangerous. Apple should make exceptions to allow background streaming, and this is one app that deserves an exception.

The SkyDock is very cool!
I have had the SkyDock installed since Tuesday and am very happy with it's performance so far. The FM modulator does a decent job of getting a clean signal to the car radio. It is very cool to be able to run PocketTunes, WunderRadio and the phone's iPod as well as XM off the same cradle. Through the FM modulator the XM music channels sound better from the SkyDock than my old roady xt. Songs played off the iPod and Internet streams have more artifacts such as flanging than when listening off of the earbuds or when plugged into my Teac iPod dock/HD clock radio. Two small technical issues. I have come across is some inconsistant behavior when you first connect the iPhone to the SkyDock cradle. Sometimes the cradle automatically powers up and sometimes you have to use the power button to turn it on. The phone also bounces around a bit when the vehicle is in motion. Not a real functional issue, just a bit of an irritant. If I had to do it all over again, I would still buy the SkyDock. A great addition to my vehicle!

Great app for ipod
Ipod and XM products. What a great idea. I work using company vehicles. The ability to take my (portable) xm radio and iPod in an all -in-one unit is an amazing plus for me. Now I don't have to plug in several pieces of equipment to enjoy whatever I feel like listening to. All-in-one piece. I went from a Roady, Roady2, to a Roady XT, to this Skydock. Anyone that has used Roadys know the simple display. Switching to a ipod driven interface / display is amazing. It also leaves the opportunity for programmers to upgrade or change the interface / display for the better (or as needed). A huge thanks to XM and Apple getting together and doing this. Keep up the great work.

Xm account required? Someone make sense of this
I am currently a lifetime subscriber to Sirius. I pay a additional $3.00 a month for the Sirius iPhone app. If I was a xm lifetime customer and paid the extra $3.00 a month would I have to get a extra xm account? So this means 2 xm accounts plus $3.00 for Sirius xm app? Someone please explain?

I hope you read the reviews before basing your purchase on thenumber of stars. This app is close to perfect! And I love the dock, too! The screen on the xm radio we had in the car was sooo small and since we had to clip it to an air vent, it was obtrusive. With the dock and this app I can now SEE the screen. Plus, the dock charges my iPod while playing and I can listen to my iPod if I don't want to listen to xm. What more could you want? Just one thing.....the ability to record from xm. Maybe soon?
