Well, I tested out the ability to use the XM Satellite Online feature on my Treo 650, but it requires a desktop browser to run the internet interface so it won’t work for now. However, I did some research in the TreoCentral forums and I could connect my XM radio to my home computer and then setup a ShoutCast server with the XM radio and listen that way. The problem there is that I could only listen to one channel and I would have to leave my MyFi at home tied to my computer. I will carry my MyFi and my Treo 650 for now since that gives me the most flexibility. I found the prank call comedy channel on ShoutCast and that is pretty funny stuff. TreoBits has a great mobile device formatted page that links to ShoutCast stations that are compatible with the Treo 650 (you need the lower bandwidth stations to avoid buffering and delays).
Personal blog about my mobile addiction and loves of my life.
No XM on my Treo 650, for now
