Love this, can also use with non-Nike+ shoes
This is an inexpensive way to track your runs and it is very Apple-smooth in its ability to use. I didn't like the Nike+ shoes, so I use the Shoe Pouch to attach it to my shoe, which works perfectly. It is obvious that Apple and NIke worked very hard to make this thing very easy to use. Its an excellent accessory for the iPod. They should however, make it work with all the iPods, not just the Nano. …

it realy does work - and your just love using it !!!
i'm a runner and music "geek" so what i have to say is all about using the Nike+ system and how to "customize" your non nike runni ng shoes
:: setting up
very easy, if you use the nike+ shoes.... but i don't so...
I don't like Nike running shoes - sorry it's just my choice - So i had to "customize" my running shoes.
by lifting up the inner sole and carving a small hole into the dense foam sole does seem a little stupid, but it does work and if your careful and use good DIY or craft skills - you will not notice the sensor or affect the shoes ability, so for you lot out there like me who love to run, you'll most likely not run in nike shoes - but really want to use the Nike+ system - well you can!
:: using the Nike+ system
once all the set up is done and your ready to run, you'll realize just how easy the voice prompt (giving live sats, run time, pace, distance) is to access and just how much it will inspire your runs - not hyping this up too much here - but it really does work!
:: getting home and making it all talk
once your done the iPod will upload your run info to the Nike+ web site (via iTunes) its all very automated - just connect the iPod and click OK and your in!
:: the web site and "seeing" your runs
this is VERY good - the flash based web site works very well and is almost too easy to use! all your runs are there, best times, best distance, compare and review - all great and very useful
:: in conclusion!
this cost me £19 - i had the iPod nano - the running shoes - a massive music library - a wonderful park on my doorstep - a desire to run
the Nike+ system has made it all come together - and just work - in a very Mac way - perfect !

Till the shoe fits
Nike hasn't fit me for years so I've found a velcro pouch that attaches to my non-Nike running shoes to fit the sensor. Sorry Nik e. …

Unable to change destination email
Sounds pretty easy, right? I set the Nike + iPod on a different email than my account that I had been using with Nike + Running (because I don't know..) and once I realized my run data was being sent to the wrong email, I began trying to fix it. Regardless of which email I set when I synch runs, it always goes to the bad email address. I've recalibrated, relinked, spent hours on the phone with Nike and then with Apple - no one seems to have an answer, nice though they are. Heading to my local Apple store.. if I'm unable to have all my runs (Nike + Running and Nike + iPod) go to the single email address/account on Nike, there's really no point in using any of these products for me. …

I found this product to be TOTALLY inaccurate. I mapped a 2 mile course with a gps unit. When I ran the course with ipod+nike usin g a new touch. It said I had walked (not ran) 1.18 miles.Off by Nearly 50%. It would not let me adjust it by calibrating for more than .5 miles still leaving it off by .3 miles. I am very disappointed that Nike and Apple have produced such a lame product. I plan on returning it and using a good old fashion stop watch!!! …

You don't need a receiver and/ or a sensor to use the Nano 6th generation to track your runs.
How ever, on its own I found it to be pretty inaccurate. Even after calibrating the device it was still getting the distance wrong by about 20/30%.
With the sports kit added the Nano becomes much more useable for running. I calibrated once and am now able to track my runs with more accuracy. …

I think the page says that the iPhone 3GS and later has the receive technology (some form of bluetoo th?) built-in. Therefore you do not need this product, you just need the sensor, which can be bought separately.
Therefore, you do not need an adapter at all.
I am not 100% sure about this so I plan on confirming at an Apple store, but I think this web page says in no uncertain terms that you do not need the adapter if you have a modern iPhone. …
