FS#5958 - Car adapter mode for iPod nano


I’d like my iPod nano to shutdown or even stop playing when external power supply switches off. Found out that this exists already and is called “Car adapter mode”, but this feature is not enabled on iPod nano. I had a quick look at the source files, what I found out so far is that the setting “Car adapter mode” depends on flag CONFIG_CHARGING (see settings.c) and this commented out in config-ipodnano.h. I’m not very experienced in developing in C and even less in Rockbox software, so I start this request: I’d like to know if this can be enabled for iPod nano, and if yes, please do so ;-)

Thanks, Marc

Closing all feature requests.

I think I’ve got it done here. All I did was enable the CONFIG_CHARGING for the nano, and set the proper GPIO bit in power-ipod.c. I don’t know what the other consequences are of enabling CONFIG_CHARGING, so please let me know if there are any side effects.

To enable, go to settings→general settings→system→car adapter mode, and you can also look at general settings→display→lcd settings→backlight (while plugged in)

is it possible to create same patch for iPod 4G grey?
Promise to respond with bug reports :)

Hi oblib,

finally I had some time this weekend to set up a complete development environment, and I made my first own build including your patch. Works as aspected on my nano in my car, thanks! :-)
