I understand some people don't understand the value or purpose of a wireless remote. I'll give you my example. I use the ipod through a stereo receiver on the other side of my workout room. I use a playlist and climb on the treadmill for 30 min. A song comes on that isn't keeping pace with my stride and I have to get off the treadmill to change songs..... or I can use this device and not skip a beat.

Sue, totally agree with you, but remember that HM Customs will slap a load of customs duty on it as well even if you do get one from the US. :-( The only solution I've found is to get a friend in the US to buy it and send it on, marked as 'gift'.

i bought this remote and intended to use with my altec lansing stereo dock/speaker set up. the remote does not control the volume, only ff or back up, pause, it's cute though but not as functional as i'd like. am I doing something wrong here???

i am looking at this remote for my brother's birthday .... he travels alot with his ipod and altec lansing speakers/dock ... but before buying ... does the remote control the volume when ipod is setup on this system ... if not ... i won't buy it! if it does control the volume .. then it sounds like a fantastic gift for my lazy brother!

Does anyone know if the NaviPod is compatible with the 4gen iPod? To me It would be cool if it was possible to learn a universal remote control the NaviPod IR signals, did anyone try this?

I have an ipod and I don't know how to hook it up to a stereo. I can hook it up to computer speakers, but not a stereo.
Can somebody help me out?

Hi Malk, you could simply connect the audio output (earphone) to the line-in of your stereo. Or you could simply use the FM transmitter with your radio tuned to reception.

I agree with Benjamin, a wireless dock would be a better idea. For now, I guess I'll have to use extra long audio cables to connect to my home stereo.

Definitely going to get the navipod ex when it comes out. Only for my car because its annoying trying to change songs while driving. Looking forward to it.

what the heck is this>? i got this on my first ipod (20gb 3g), and it had crap as range. Not only that but the battery died within a few weeks and that battery is some expensive radioshack stuff. Aside from that, it doesnt transmit through my khakis. lame, stick with the OG wired one.
