Just wondering though, why would a person want to actually get a remote
without an LCD? as surely a lot of people would want to see what they are
browsing through.
Sorry if this sounds a stupid question, but as a blind user, I can't think
why a person would not want an lcd if the option is available. The only
advantage I can think of would be that it would save power, and even then if
they wanted to change the folder they were listening to, they'd need to look
at the display on the main iriver unit, unless of course they were using
rockbox lol. But if they wern't this would defeat the idea of a remote. Its
a shame Iriver never actually developed a propper wireless remote that would
have been cool.
