The Consumer Electronics Association has named its 2010 Best of Innovations award winners. Among them is the XM SkyDock, an iPhone/iPod Touch XM Radio tuner.

In our recent review of the XM SkyDock, we found that its ease of installation and use and, to some degree, portability made it a good choice for iPhone users who want to add XM Radio to their vehicles without the complication and expense of a permanent installation. However, we weren't thrilled with the fact that the SkyDock didn't continue to stream while, for example, navigating.

The XM SkyDock joins other in-vehicle technologies honored in the 2010 CES Innovation Awards, such as Ford's Work Solutions in-dash computer, a new Rand-McNally GPS device, and Audiovox's Flo TV system.
