No multitasking
An update that doesn't incorporate multi-tasking, which would allow me to use Maps while listening to the radio, is baffling.

Get cracking on the the Multi-tasking on this app. I'd like to use XM AND Navigon at the same time. The SkyDock is perfect for the Navigon...it's just that I can't listen to XM while using it. Weak.

Great application.... when it actually works
Update: I am really disappointed by this update. The only improvement I can see is that now it can reconnect itself after it loses the skydock, sometimes. If you're reading this review trying to decide whether or not to purchase an XM Skydock, I strongly encourage you not to. I'm canceling my XM subscription and returning the Skydock to Best Buy. Original: If this application did what it was supposed to do all the time, it would be really great. I bought the skydock hardware about two weeks ago. It worked fine until I updated to iOS4 on my iPhone 3GS. Now the the application is very unreliable. Often it doesn't recognize the dock. Sometimes it recognizes the dock and will play music, but I won't be able to change the channel. Other times it recognizes the dock, but won't charge or vice versa. If I go over a bump in the road, it loses connection with the skydock. I was tempted to think this was solely an issue with the skydock hardware, but I haven't had any of these issues (except the charging) when using Pandora or my stored music. This application clearly hasn't been updated for use with iOS4, which is pretty pathetic. FREE services like Pandora had an update out the very first day. I expect more from a subscription service. I look forward to an updated application VERY soon, otherwise I can get most of the content that I want elsewhere. I will chock up my hardware purchase as a very expensive dock and charging station.

Still no multitasking!
This is extremely disappointing to STILL not have multitasking with the XM Skydock app! I can use a free GPS driving app and a free Internet radio app at the same time while connected to your Skydock, but I can't multitask with the app whose service I am ACTUALLY PAYING FOR ON A MONTHLY BASIS!!! This is ridiculous and MUST be corrected ASAP!
