Problems persist
This the most problematic app I've ever had. Seldom starts properly. Crashes. Freezes. Etc. Reinstalls help but only temporarily. If I could get XM via another source without cutting up my car, I would. Grrrr

Whyever not?
It was bad enough when, upon the merger, they didn't combine the stations into one sirius/xm package. But why on earth are they still inventing tuners which are not dual compatable??

Not working after update
After most recent update, XM has not powered up in over a week, circle just spins for a couple of minutes and then screen says, "Skydock could not power on radio". My playlists work fine. When I called XM support they suggested uninstalling & reinstalling app and finally offered to send me out a new Skydock. Meanwhile, I'm still paying for XM service.

This app is balls
Every time they update this software it gets worse. If you like silence and messages that say check antenna then this is the app for you. If you like actual music look elsewhere.

Do not buy this dock!
As with so many other reviewers, my SkyDock worked reasonably well for about six months then quit. The current error message says it "can not power on the radio" even though the radio is on and playing a local FM station. Then it switches to "SkyDock not connected" and just spins indefinitely. At least I can enjoy the little blue background waves on the home screen. In fact even when it worked, it would display the message "Skydock not connected" even when I was receiving and playing music with it on my radio. Maybe it was forecasting the future. I can play anything on my IPnone through the FM transmitter on the dock to my radio, just NOT XM material. So that part of the device is working. Seems like a software issue to me, but no one seems to know. XM service is absolutely no help, even if you can get them on the line, but don't count on it. Even if you do, you will be on hold until next spring. Further XM will NOT cancel the contract even though I can no longer receive this service with their dock. So I'm stuck in a useless contract with a device that does not work. Take your money elsewhere. Never again.

Needs room for more favorites
This app works as advertised. I love having XM in my car through my iPhone 4. The new background audio capabilities make this app even better. The only complaint I have is that they limit your favorite channel list to 12. This seems silly and I don't understand why they don't expand this list by making three groups of 12 (preset A, B & C just like all car stereos have FM1, FM2, FM3).
