a good price
5th gen 16gb ipod nano with camera Â£125 in black
seriously for about that price I'd get an iPod touch ' I don't know a single person who has one that has regretted it
ok will go look and see
I agree with Chris
Then he'll wish it had a phone attached!
no dont need a touch, i will only use it in the car for mass music storage to save having loads of cd's. really pointless paying the extra for something id never use outside of the car
If you just want storage get one of the classics, loads of storage, we have all our music on one and use that if we go away.
you mean like the original ipod jules?
Look here Nut
i think a nano will do tbh as i havent got that much music that the storage gives you on a classic plus price as well, not paying Â£200 for one
You WILL use the extra capabilities of the iPod touch, I promise
i wont josh, i only want it in the car to play music lol
You say that now but seriously You would do if you had it
I'd go for a nano if you're really THAT certain, but my Dad had the same plan, went to the apple store (or currys I can't remember) and played with the iPod touch, bought it, and is really glad he did
He uses it for movies (the nano screen is a little too small IMO) when he goes on holiday, to check his emails etc when he's abroad, plays loads of games on it, surfs the net when he's on holiday, all sorts of uses that he said he "didn't need" For the sake of the Â£30 difference he's glad he did
ok so if i went with the touch what connections do you get, say for the car, pc etc or are they separate?
Every iPod/iPhone/iPad uses the same 30-pin connection cable as each other In the box you get headphones, USB cable, little instruction manual and some apple stickers. It's the same with every single iPod If you car has an AUX-in then you just need a 3.5mm cable, one end goes in your headphone slot and the other goes in your car
If you car has USB connectivity, then you can just use the supplied USB cable with it
ok cool. so the ipod, whatever model has a 3.5mm jack, my car has the same so thats all i need, which ive got already.
i'll tell the kids what they are getting me for my birthday at the end of the month
Rather than a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable, you may want to look at something like this:
This works off the 30 pin connector on the iPod but provides better sound since it's using the line level audio output from the 30 pin connector rather than the headphone level output from the 3.5mm headphone jack. It's similar to what I've got in my car. I just plug my iPod into the 30 pin connector, set my car stereo to the AUX setting and I'm set.
And the sound is MUCH better than the headphone output.
Tom macwave:... need my tunes!)
ok cool, thanks tom, will see how much they are here, can always use the other lead til i get one
just had a look and they are only Â£18 on ebay new
