Problem with upgrade fixed
Many of the reviews mention a problem with upgrading to this version. Once I upgraded, I also had a problem with loading -- the endless message that the app was loading. I tried trashing and reinstalling the app, without any change. Finally, I called XM and told them the problem. They told me they would reset the unit remotely, to just unplug the Skydock and plug it back in. Do the same with the iphone by turning it off and on (not a factory reset, just power down). I did so. The reset lost all my saved channels and tagged songs but it wasn't a big deal. As soon as I hooked up the iphone to the Skydock it worked. So far (day 2) no problems, though it is a bit slow loading on a iphone 3gs with OS 4.3.2. However, everything worked post-reset.

Needs an update
I wish it would show the album artwork for the current song. Needs to have the same look as the SiriusXM Internet Radio app.

I've had this for about 5 months now and overall it works good. I was skeptical after reading other reviews but still glad I purchased. I too had "lost connection""not connected" problems between the skydock and itouch. This has only happened twice since I've had it. All I do is totally power off my itouch and when it comes back on it connects. I like the portability of the unit. I have another antenna in my other vehicle and routinely transfer unit between them with no issues.

Dock and Bluetooth.
Would love it if when docked I could use Bluetooth for audio out. I have a Sony radio that I connect my Ipod over bluetooth and stream music too, but when docked in the XM unit I'm forced to use the FM transmitter or ext cable. Other then that unit is working well.

Like the others, I continue to have problems with the Skydock "not detected" and every time I call XM support, they run me through their list of "procedures" in their book and it never works. One day it just mysteriously will begin working again. I think their programmers can't keep up with the Apple updates. I've had this problem since the beginning. When it works however, it's great... but if you proceed, be forewarned there will be many outages in your little love affair with the Skydock.
