works
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.

DO NOT UPGRADE
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.

Works great!
I've been using this now for over a week with no issues. It can be difficult to manipulate the controls, but an 18 wheeler is not the smoothest ride!

Good radio, with some updates may be awesome
I really like having my xm and all of my itunes music in one place now. No more switching between units while driving. The FM modulator seems to work very well (I'm using the Aux input instead). There are a few things that I would like to see in future upgrades: Another page for favorite channels (12 isn't enough for me). Touch sensitivity when changing stations sometimes doesn't work. I don't like the fact that when you turn off the car, but leave the app on, it never turns the iphone off (you'd think that when the power is no longer applied it would turn off). And the #1 thing that I'd like, would be the ability to pause and buffer for 30 minutes like I could on my SkyFi. If/When those things happen, it'll be awesome! I've had tons of crashing and locking up issues since the channel changeover on 5/4/11!!!! What is the deal? The only way I've been able to get the radio unlocked is to remove power from the skydock and remove and re-install the app.
