Needs more presets...
Good app, does what it's supposed to do (after you spend $120 on the SkyDock, of course). Definitely needs more presets; 12 just doesn't cut it. Add another dozen presets and I'll be happy. Not related to the app, but I do get a small bit of engine noise/alternator whine from my speakers that I didn't get with the Belkin Tunebase, all else being equal (both connected to aux. in, not FM modulator).

AWESOME Software
I honestly can not believe that XM created such an awesome product for FREE that not only allows you to use your iPhone as a satellite receiver, but also allows you to play your personal iTunes songs through your car speakers with great sound quality with their car dock purchased.

The only downside is that sometimes the software app doesn't respond as quickly as it should when trying to select a station. I'm glad that the software was free which allows me to still rate this product with 5 stars. Way to go, XM.

Worked good but.....
Worked great as an XM unit. But was a pain any time I needed my phone. I returned it. Will consider purchasing again when they add bluetooth so I can use my phone while it's docked.

Can't get a FM transmitter to work in LA
I bought this skydock hoping it would work with my current radio system. I used to have Belkin, but it won't charge my iphone. This is would charge my iphone.. so I thought it would be an awesome choice. Unfortunately, I could not find ONE station that would work in Los Angeles. I drive from Burbank to Santa Monica every day, and I have tried every single channel on my radio. I called customer service and they told me I should have called before I purchase Skydock so they would let me know it wouldn't work well in LA. Hmm?? So should I call Victoria Secret before I buy a bra so they can tell me it won't fit my body shape too??? Weird concept. Sorry, sending it back to the store!

Great, but missing one important feature
Bought one today and installation was very easy and quick. Audio quality is really good through FM transmitter (best I have heard yet) and near perfect through AUX jack to car audio system. The XM radio interface is great and very easy to use. I am disappointed that it does not allow me to answer a phone call and hear the caller through my car's audio system and talk handsfree. It does stop the XM radio music when a call comes in and rings through the car audio. I like that because I don't miss a call when listening to music because I didn't hear it ring; however it does not play the phone call audio through the car audio system, so I have to remove the phone from the SkyDock to talk to someone that calls. Definately not convenient and very cumbersome. If this issue could be fixed (probably a software oversight that can be fixed by an update to the software) the SkyDock would be perfect for me.

Sirius users avoid!
This seems like a cool product. Howerver, if you use Sirius and not XM then this will not work for you. Even though they merged Sirius told me I would have to call XM to activate the dock. I would also not be recieving my multiple radio discount. Once again a way for this company to nickel and dime there loyal customers.
