Sirius XM’s SkyDock isn’t super sexy. It isn’t elegant. It is what it is, a standalone satellite radio receiver with an iPod connector that will let you listen to space radio on your iPhone or iPod Touch. And that’s fine with us because it’s the only way to do so.
The dock uses iPhone OS 3.0′s new hardware support and plugs into your car’s DC jack for power and support. This dock will cost you $120, plus the required subscription to Sirius XM radio. A free companion app sets your iPhone up as a radio controller. Pretty cool.
Sirius XM has merged some of its channels and at CES they’ve rolled out their very first interoperable satellite radio: the MiRGE (Get it?, Sirius XM…Merge). It will let you switch between Sirius and XM signals easily and the radio will also display three other channels as you view your current channel.
You’ll even be able to pause and rewind up to 60 minutes of live programming. XM Sirius has also rolled out a new “Sirius Everything plus XM Everything” package for the radio, which will cost you $19.99 a month. Apparently it gives you everything you’d get when you subscribe to the two separate services.
XM Satellite Radio wants to make sure it can get its product beamed into as many cars nationwide as possible. To that end it announced today the XM Direct 2, priced at around $130.
The XM Direct 2, developed by Audiovox, is a universal adapter solution for satellite radio compatible car stereos. This means it should work with more than 100 satellite ready car stereos on the market today from manufacturers such as Alpine, Clarion, Eclipse, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Panasonic, and Sony. The unit, which is programmable by retailers, lets one use the car stereo’s controls …
XM has announced the release of the XpressRC satellite radio receiver as an upgrade to the XpressR we showed you in June expanding on some features, adding some features and now in color.
The XpressRC’s most notable feature has to be its display.

With over 170 channels of satellite radio through XM it can be difficult to choose a favorite station to listen to, much less switch back and forth between stations to pick up your favorite song, program or sporting event. The new XpressR satellite radio receiver from XM comes with a few features that allow you to take more advantage of what’s on the other channels and helps you avoid missing out.
The most noticeable new feature of the XpressR is the multi-view of stations. The display can be changed to split down the …

Many of us would like satellite radio in our car, but we don’t want to spend a ton of money replacing the car’s current radio. It’s a common complaint. But now there is a simple solution. Audiovox has introduced the Audiovox XM Snap!.
It really is a snap too. Just set up the antenna in your car and plug the unit into your car’s cigarette lighter, tune onto the right station on your car’s radio and you’re done. The device sets up quickly and you can listen to SIRIUS XM Radio in less than 10 minutes time. We love it.
The XM Snap accessory has endured FCC testing and has now been officially revealed, no worse for wear. Sadly, it will not support Android devices but simply be an in-car satellite radio receiver that’s much easier to install than a head end unit. The device plugs into your vehicle’s power outlet and includes a stem that will hold up the control panel.
The panel includes a rotary knob for changing channels, some preset keys and arrows and a high-contrast display. The bundle also includes a magnetic mount antenna for attaching to your roof, hood or trunk, though it is wired. There’s also an auxiliary input cable for plugging into a vehicle’s aux-in jack.
After countless iPod/iPhone docks that are all pretty much the same, the XML8110 Mechless Mobile Audio system manages to be unique. It combines an iPod docking station with a car stereo. On the surface it looks like a standard car stereo, but when you flip it down, the integrated universal iPod dock is exposed.
It will let you dock your iPod, charge the device, and users will be able to access all the playlists and music on the device. It also comes with a built in FM radio, EQ presets and an AUX In for connecting other devices. It will also allow users to take calls from their iPhone. With a corresponding iPhone app that’s also in the works, the integration between these two devices gets better.
Remember the XM SkyDock? It’s now available for purchase for $120. For that price it will give you full touchscreen control along with tagging capabilities over your in-car satellite radio. SkyDock features a built-in XM tuner and PowerConnect FM transmitter and will plug right into the cigarette lighter / power adapter socket where it will also charge your Apple device.
XM is making the App a free download from Apple’s App Store, but you’ll still have to run the antenna cable along the inside of your vehicle’s weather stripping to attach the magnetic antenna to your car’s roof (just above your front windshield) for optimal results.
Anyone who owns an iPhone will tell you the best thing about the device is the App Store and the slew of free and paid games and applications available to add to the iPhone experience. The App Store has been so successful that most every other smartphone maker is now offering its own application store.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio has announced that its iPhone App is now the top free app in the music category. The app has been downloaded 1 million times in the two weeks since it was available starting on June 18.
Sirius XM is preparing to file for bankruptcy and it could happen within days, according to the New York Times. A bankruptcy would make Sirius XM one of the largest casualties of the economy. It would be the second-largest Chapter 11 filing so far this year.
The article speculates that the move might be designed to pressure Dish Network and EchoStar owner Charles Ergen into making an offer. According to the Wall Street Journal, he offered to purchase the satellite radio group last year, but was brushed off. Anyway, he apparently wants to try again.
XM’s XMp3 portable radio has been leaked along with one of its key features, thanks to a new Popular Science issue that accidentally revealed the device before showtime. The size has been reduced compared to the the Pioneer Inno and other previous handheld satellite radios, but the big news so far is that the XMp3 has the option of capturing five separate channels and downloading a song from each at the same time. The user could listen to a live event without missing broadcasts on other stations. Details are scarce, but we know it has a color display of unknown resolution and a dock. We’re guessing it also sports typical mp3 storage as well. No pricing info yet or launch date, but expect it by year’s end.
