Multi-Tasking is here
Finally multi-tasking is here. Now I can use my motion x gps while listening to xm. However, the volume doesn't go down on the radio by itself when the gps speaks. I would like to see that happen. Also, it is very difficult to find a case that I can leave on the phone and use the skydock. The issues is that it doesn't sit tight on the plug and connect properly.

Multitasking works great with IOS 4.1
I just upgraded to IOS 4.1 on my iPod Touch 2g, and to SkyDock 2.1.8. The multitasking works great once it updated the SkyDock firmware. Note that you might not want to be driving when you do the upgrade, since it puts up an explanation of how to use the multitasking once the firmware upgrade completes. I pulled over into a parking lot so I could read it safely. To Hawkman123 - I use the Power Support Air Jacket case on my iPod Touch 2g and it fits fine into the dock. Also, have you tried changing the insert size to work with your case?

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.
