Overview: The Scosche Car and Sport Remote Control Kit for
iPod (IPNRFCS) includes a 7-button wireless remote, a steering wheel mount,
armband, and a plug-in iPod module so you can wirelessly control your iPod in
the vehicle or on the go.
Compatibility: The Scosche Car and Sport Remote Control Kit for iPod
supports the following Apple iPod models.
- iPod color/photo display (4th generation)
- iPod mini (1st/2nd generation)
- iPod video (5th generation)
- iPod nano (1st/2nd/3rd/4th generation)
- iPod classic (80/120/160GB)

RF Receiver: The supplied RF receiver module plugs into your
iPods dock connector. The bottom of the module has a female dock connector for
charging and syncing your iPod.
Power Requirements: The RF receiver, which draws power from
the iPod, uses an advanced power down mode to minimize battery usage. After 20
minutes of sensing no music playing or no remote commands, the unit will go into
an advanced battery save mode. The receiver will automatically re-power itself
when it detects music playing or a remote command of 0.6 seconds or more.
RF Remote: The included wireless remote control operates on
radio frequencies, instead of infrared, giving you an extended operating range
of up to 100 feet. RF remote commands do not require line of sight with the
receiver, and can travel through walls. The remote can be hand-held, or used in
the supplied steering wheel mount. The remote has 7 buttons with the following
- Track Back/Track Forward: Press and release to move to
the beginning of the current track (back) or the beginning of the next track
(forward). Press and hold to rewind or fast forward through the track.
- Play List Select: Used with the function button, you
can move forward or backward through the list of available playlists.
- Pause/Play/Sleep: Press and release to toggle between
Pause and Play. Press and Hold to put iPod into sleep mode.
- Volume Up/Down: Press and hold to reduce or increase
- Shuffle Play: Press to randomly play songs on the iPod
Steering Wheel Mount: The remote control can be mounted into
the supplied steering wheel cradle. The cradle can be attached to the steering
wheel with the included hook & loop strap.
Armband: The remote control can also be mounted around your arm, using
the included arm-cradle and hook & loop armband.
