So I recently purchased the ipod cable for my XC. Well I hooked up my ipod classic and it worked perfectly.. for 20 miles then nothing. the ipod skips from song to song all by itself and no sound comes out of it. I took it off the bike and tried headphones, same result. Well I assumed the ipod had given up on its own and mistakenly replaced it with my wife's Ipod touch (she's now going to kill me) and it lasted one song. Now it has a black screen and won't even turn on. Does anybody have a any experience with this before I rip the cable back off?
From what I have been reading here everyone has good luck with the nano. I have been using my nano for the past 600 miles with no problems to report.... yet.

My Nano, (not sure if current version, has camera in it) works fine UNLESS I turn off the bike while playing it. It doesn't see the Nano when I turn back on. I have to unplug and replug in the Nano. If I flip to a new source before turning off bike, works fine!

No issues with mine for over 3K. I keep mine in the little organizer bag that clips onto the side of the hard bag...keeps it up and off the hard bottom, further away from the hotter portion of the bag (don't want to start a 'tempature in the bag' discussion..just stating my opinion), and keeps the nano upright.
I've also used my iPhone the same way with no issues...
My first couple of rides screwed up my I-pod- you have to re-set it by pushing the center button and the reset button until it resets. I bought a nano and have gone over 10000 kilometers with it and no problems.
With the older i-pods, you really need to make sure that it is stationary in your bike. We made a velcro stick on the side so that it didn't move.

my old flash (i think classic?) has been good for -10k now...the cable was dealer instlled during a service...i doublesided the cable-pod to the bag and keep the ipod in an old sunglass case-rides on the bottom just peachy.
