    Im thinking about getting the radio remote and wanted to know from other owners is it worth it? Also does the radio work or is it static most of the time?

    I like the way it works and the quality of radio it has. My only complaint is that the cord it comes with pugged into any set of headphones creates a cord that is at least 6 feet long. Even for a tall person, it makes for a tangled situation.

    I see that you have an iPod Touch. You can download a radio application like AOL radio or Pandora and use those. They work very well.

    If you are going to use the Nano for radio, the Apple radio remote is a good product other than what I mentioned above.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Signal strength?

    My gym uses RF broadcasters so you can watch TV while you work out by tuning in to a specific channel listed under the TV on the wall you want to watch.

    I've tried several small portable radios for this and they always have problems holding the channel.

    Has anyone used the iPod radio for anything like this? If so, How well does it work?
