I've tried the Scosche and iJet and am not satisfied with either. I have a buddy who uses the Monster and at least his pause/play works consistently. Has anyone been satisfied with any of these?
Does anyone use the Otterbox or H2O waterproof cases? The Otterbox claims the membrane allows click-wheel use but my iPod (classic 80gig) wheel doesn't work with my gloves...
The H2O scroll wheel makes sense but has anyone used it? Plus it's $90.00...:headbang:

A google thanks :confused:

I put my iPod in a Ram aquabox and have it hooked into my autocom setup. I can use the wheel in the Aquabox, but can easily pause and start again and rewind. I mainly just listen to songs on a playlist and decide before riding which playlist to use. The Aquabox/Ram combo has proven to be very waterproof with me riding in torrential downpours and no water issues.


I haven't tried a remote but ws just starting to look into it. Funny, someone on ADVrider thought the Scosche was a good choice. I thought about hiding away the iPod, keeping it charged from the bike (with a pass-through connector for the remote). Seems like the Scosche isn't a good choice (I think no pass through either.)

I set mine up last year with a Monster iClick waterproof remote and put the iPod(classic 160Gb) under the seat with a pass through power connector.

It lasted about 2 days on the road, I had it replaced, it lasted about 2 days on the road. I now have my iPod in the tank bag case with power and a Bluetooth transmitter to my headset.

I had no time to study or buy other systems before heading to the USA. I am not interested in adding stuff while travelling.

Hope that helps

Cheers

Solution

For anyone who cares:
I decided to go with an H20 Audio case for my iPod classic. It offered 100% waterproof/shock resistant protection AND direct control of all functions via their "click wheel." Plus I found one on e-bay for $28.00.
So far I'm overjoyed. All "push button" functions work perfectly and 100% of the time. The user's finger has to be aligned with the arrow of the "click wheel" for it to work but when you're lined up it works perfectly too.

Sometime in the bleak midwinter I'll finish installing and wiring up my entertainment/communications rig and post some pictures.

Kudos to H20 Audio.
