The least expensive XM radio you can get is the XM PCR, which is powered and controlled over a USB connection to a host PC (the audio does not, however, come back across the USB connection. It’s just got an analog line-out jack). Unfortunately, the only software they give you is for Windows. But fortunately, it’s been reverse engineered, so I was able to write MacXM. At this point, it is very stable and easy to use, and so far as I know it is the only XM radio software that integrates with the iTunes music store (click a button and iTunes pops up with a search for the current song title and artist).”

I have been an XM Radio customer since my girlfriend got it for me for Christmas two years ago. Easily the best $10 a month you can spend. In fact, my next car will definitely have an XM receiver built-in to the factory system (as opposed to going third-party). The real question: anyone know of a factory XM radio that also has an auxiliary input for my iPod?
