Remote works on I-Pod – New Wireless Remote Control for iPhone and iPod Reviews

posted by Rocky222 on 06/21/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
If you have big hands like mine, this helps to eliminate wrong button hits or multiple button hits.
Works Great in a car when attention should be on the road.
It helps to elimnate dropped I-Pods because you don't have to pull it out to change volumn or cycle between songs.
Works great on my I-Pod.
Cons:
You can NOT use this if your I-Pod is in a dock. The remote pick up takes up the connection and will not allow you to reinsurt the I-Pod into the station.
Other:
I bought this, not picturing in my mind how it would be set up. When I realized that the remote sensor would take up the docking slot I was kicking myself. I did learn some pros about this item as you can see.
Bottomline:
I'm waiting for someone to build and market a dual or pass thru docking slot that will allow the use of this remote with an I-pod dock. The controller works great and is so simple to use. The docking station remote is small and not easy to use with all the other buttons that control CD's and radio and so on. I use the I-Pod for music 90% of the time.
