I just received my new iPod Nano (7th gen). Just noticed I can no longer use it with my Bose SoundDock.

Thats it? Any suggestion?

Thanks! ;)

Which Sounddock? If it is the 10, there is this (http://www.amazon.com/Bose-SoundDock-Bluetooth-30-Pin-Speaker/dp/B002RJLL6O).

If not, you can get a Lightning adapter cable (http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD824ZM/A/lightning-to-30-pin-adapter-02-m?fnode=72).

Or there are bluetooth receivers, like this (http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F8Z492TTP-Bluetooth-Music-Receiver/dp/B0047T79VS/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1350678385&sr=1-1&keywords=belkin+bluetooth+adapter).

I bought my Bose SoundDock in 2007. I don't know exactly what is the model. It doesn't have bluetooth. Is it not the 10, right?

A bluetooth adapter would not work, right? In this case what is the best solution?

I also find this one: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD823ZM/A/lightning-to-30-pin-adapter?fnode=72

Thanks!

I forget when the 10 came out, but it is the biggest sounddock model. It doesn't have bluetooth when you buy it, but you can add bluetooth by buying that add-on I linked to.

The bluetooth receiver from Belkin I linked to (and others like it) works by plugging into a speaker's input port. Basically, it turns any speaker into a bluetooth speaker.

I think the adapter you found will work with the nano, yes. But since the new nano has bluetooth, I think playing music is much more convenient through bluetooth. You should consider it.
