    Hey guys.
    I usually post over in the iPhone section but I have a quick question about my iPod Nano.
    I don't have it in front of me as I keep it in my car at all times but I still hope you guys know the answer.

    How would I go about repeating just one song?

    I know if you click while a song is playing, it gives you some options as to shuffle song/album but there is no repeat anywhere.

    Sorry for such a simple question but not even a quick google search gave me an answer.

    you could simply add it to the on-the-go playlist and let this list repeat or go to settings --> Repeat One

    Sounds like too much work just to repeat one song.
    No other way?

    On my iPod Touch (don't keep in car) it's very simple to just tap the repeat button twice.

    Yes, I understand this but there is no specific way to repeat a song?
    That's ridiculous.
    I use my iPod in my car and sometimes I just want to listen to the same song over and over without having to touch my iPod.
    No possible way?

    I tend to want to listen to the same song on my iPod a lot too, (Black Moth Super Rainbow - Tooth Decay) and when I want to I go through that tedious list of actions detailed above, going into the settings and telling it to repeat one song then loading up the song and having to undo the process to go back to normal.

    The next firmware could use a "Loop this song" option when you hold down the center button.

    That's it.

    I thought the options you got nowadays when you pressed centre included both repeat and shuffle options. How tedious to learn it's still the same as my 2005 iPods.

    Just hit back if you're driving.
