The battery was still good in the remote (as the Griffin 'site said "the battery should last for the life of the product"). Plugged it in & worked perfect!! No pairing/sync/LOS issues. Because it is an RF controller, it can even control the ipod (w/external powered speakers) from upstairs & the garage!
This connects and acts like the Apple wired remote M9128G/A. This unit will:
1)Turn the ipod on and off.
2)Play and pause currently selected program (playlist, album, artist, etc) with the previously selected options (shuffle, repeat).
3)Raise and lower volume
4)Fast forward and rewind thru a song and skip to next or previous song.
Like the M9128G/A, it has no select or menu button. Any functions that would use those buttons cannot be done from this remote (browse/select playlists, albums, artists, etc).
I really like it and it meets my needs perfectly. The dock connector is available for external power and I have remote control of the unit w/o line of sight requirements of IR remotes or the tether of a wired remote.
The second unit behaved exactly like the first one. Even worse actually. I contacted the seller (Apex Suppliers) and received a returned the item. I still have not received a refund or a reply to my emails. Beware of this seller.
My setup: One of my iPods, on which resides my music collection, is connected to my stereo line input and power with a dock connector. This is the device that I want to control remotely, from my living room couch or nearby study.
Out of the box: the remote and receiver module. The receiver module has a pass-through headphone jack. The remote control has a bracket and velcro straps for different kinds of mounting or wearing. The remote can control volume (read below for one caveat), start/stop, and skip forward and back. There is a hold slider switch with an orange dot similar to the iPod itself. Also, there is a brief instruction sheet. It comes with all batteries needed installed.
In my experience, the RF control is good up to about 20 feet. This means it works quite well from any location in my living room where the stereo is, and from any point in the study next door. Indeed, as I sat at my desk writing this review, I cut my tunes off to make a phone call and then back on. It's just terrific in that respect, and accomplishes what I wanted.
My bedroom is about 20 feet away, and the device will work from the bedroom doorway--but not all the way to my bed. Now, if I could pump out the jams right until pillow time and then turn it off from the horizontal, I would have given this a "5." It doesn't quite make it, but what it can do is still nice and useful, and beats running into the living room every time I want to turn my music on or off!
A word about the volume--when the iPod is using the dock connector for the connection to the stereo, the volume is constant and cannot be controlled from the iPod's control wheel or the Airclick. That is a hardware feature of the iPod dock. If volume control is critical, use the Airclick's pass-through earphone jack for the stereo connection. Otherwise, you would use your stereo's volume control.
All in all, in my experience, a very successful device if you are using your iPod as a music input device for your home stereo. A 4 rather than a 5 because the useful range is just a few feet less than I would like.
I rate this product 4 star because it works great. It is hard to remember what it was like before a wireless remote. I also have the Griffin iFM Remote (wired) too, but this is the best product if you are just after a remote function. It only lost one star since I can't reliably use it in my Camelbak as compared to my jacket.
