Room for improvement, but great solution
I don't get why anyone would buy any other standalone radio. This solution works really well and is a very polished app. There is, as with all apps, room for improvement. I ran the antenna wire around the windshield gap as instructed and ten down the driver door and through a gap in the dash. No tools needed and was up and running in 10 minutes in the best buy parking lot. I had to call customer service to activate as the online activation didn't recognize my radio ID. I hope this app will help save satelite radio, it's a great service. 4 stars except as a Sirius lifetime subscriber I had to sign up for an XM account. Kind of a slap in this early adopters face. So one star off for that.

Zero stars
Very easy to install but doesn't work (unless by 'work' you mean dropouts and hiss during EVERY song during a Thanksgiving roadtrip) (unless by 'work' you mean a website which refuses to accept your radio ID; essential for accessing online account management tools) (unless by 'work' you mean tech support who can barely pronounce their American sounding 'names' much less provide intricate tech support) (unless by 'work' you mean features that do not function as advertised). At least was free, except for $30 to set it up and hours wasted talking to stupid tech support who don't know how to listen! Do yourself a favor and just get Pandora: it's also free with no $15 monthly charge for hisssss and static and IT WORKS!

Outstanding But Lacks One Critical Feature
Overall, this is an excellent and very functional app. The one thing it desperately needs is a 'Back' button to return to the previous channel. Add that and it's five stars hands down.

Awesome! Best investment I ever made!
I feel like I have a new car, but I only spent a hundred bucks. Love the music and everything else on XM.

serius xm
This app is used in conjuntion with the Skydock for iphone or ipod touch. The sound quality is good, the dock is not top heavy. You can also play itunes music and movies through the FM transmitter. I have not used my car stereo since i got the sky dock.

Needs a bit more work, but close
The app really needs to have the Channel Access ---> Channel Skip/Add function that other XM portables have. It would help to control how many channels you swipe through to find something that interests you -- particularly since the app limits you to only 12 slots. Really wish it could play XM in the background too -- like the iPod part of the phone can -- so that you can run other apps at the same time. Otherwise, I like it a lot and I am using it as my primary XM receiver.
