Hi All

It probably depends on the connection to the device. If its just a regular
headphone socket then no worries, but my wife bought a Belcon cigarette
lighter powered fm transmitter for the car to be used with her Nano and I
have noticed the following with the first couple of plays I have had.
Firstly I have to have prockbox playing and hold down the top button on the
Nano as I insert it into the docking area and then it plays just fine
although it does not seem to charge the unit whilst using rockbox which it
does when using the Nano in the apple firmware.
