I currently have an old startus and am looking at upgrading to something better. I notice that all the new stuff is on the XM network. A few questions:

Any personal reviews on "Power connect"? Does it work well? Is it worth it?

Does anyone know if Sirius will have Powerconnect on any new radio's soon? I saw the Startus 6 but wanted something color.

The best option for me would be the Skydock but this again is on the XM network.

Am I forced to switch to XM and get the "best of" to get my Howard fix? I hope not.
