Nice concept, but that remote is just fugly. I guess one can always program their universal remotes and put this thing away.

Isn't this thing just a wireless remote? I didn't see any info that it's an FM transmitter as well, but maybe I missed it.

Yeah, it appears to just be a remote

A big clunky wireless remote. It would be worth something if it had an FM transmitter, but as is its a solution in search of a problem. Why do I need a wireless remote for a protable music player???

Yeah, it's just an IR remote. A novel concept for those who have integrated their iPods into their home entertainment system.

But that remote...

$50

Fifty bucks for a remote control. Jeez, that's a bit steep isn't it?

That's the one thing the iPod was missing. I'm surprised Apple hasn't already come out with one.

Too bad the naviPod remote is far too big. Better than nothing I suppose though.

Somebody needs to make a Bluetooth add on module, so you cab remote it via your cell phone.
