Sirius XM rolls out SkyDock for iPhone, iPod touch

image

Sirius XM Radio has introduced its new XM SkyDock accessory for the iPhone and iPod touch. The XM SkyDock is a combination vehicle mount, charger, and satellite radio receiver, featuring a flexible stalk, a choice of either auxiliary or PowerConnect connections, the latter of which uses the vehicle’s existing wiring to connect to the vehicle’s radio, and a cradle designed to handle any generation of iPod touch or iPhone via specifically-designed spacers. In addition, the SkyDock takes advantage of new hardware control capabilities found in iPhone OS 3.0 to allow users to listen to any of their subscribed XM channels as well as the “Best of Sirius,” including Howard Stern, tag songs they hear for later purchase from the iTunes store, and access game alerts, a sports ticker, artist and song alerts, and a stock ticker. The XM SkyDock will be available this fall and will sell for $120; the XM SkyDock app will launch at the same time. [via AllThingsD]

Thanks for nothing Sirius, I already have it built into my car!  The point of the iPhone app is I can listen anywhere.

I have satellite radio in my new car, its free for a month. I listened to it for a couple of days then plugged my ipod into the radio. I haven’t listened to satellite radio since.

Someone should tell the satellite radio people that ipods are going to kill them eventually. Who wants to listen to someone else’s’ music choices when they can listen to their own choices in music?
