SiriusXM iOS App Is Now Compatible With Ford SYNC. Is AppRadio Next?

For many months AppRadio users have wondered when the SiriusXM app will become AppRadio compatible. It seems like the obvious app to join the long list of compatible apps. But for whatever reason, it hasn't happened. A recent update to the app, however, has added compatibility with Ford SYNC AppLink. Maybe AppRadio is next for the satellite radio provider?

SYNC AppLink is one of Ford's in-car entertainment features which uses voice to control a variety of mobile apps while driving. Apps from various music, navigation, sports, news and lifestyle categories are compatible. It works with Android, BlackBerry and iOS platforms and is an additional upgrade to the car's entertainment package. Here are some music apps compatible with SYNC AppLink...

SiriusXM has added a new feature called MySXM which allows users to personalize what they hear on the various music channels. You can tweak your music preferences based on generation, genre or region by using slide bars. MySXM is included free of cost with a SiriusXM internet radio subscription. Here's an illustration from SiriusXM...

Now all we need is AppRadio compatibility. Hopefully, SiriusXM will follow through and make their app compatible. It will eliminate the need for additional hardware to enjoy satellite radio with your AppRadio.


  1. So is SiriusXM compatible with this if I already have satellite radio built in to my car? I drive a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS. I want this appradio so bad but it must be capable of playing SiriusXM....I live off of that! PLEASE HELP!!!!! Send me an email @

  2. you can play your sirius app still through the appradio but it will have to be controlled from the phone until appradio and sirius make sweet sweet love.
