I think they changed this replacement offer thing. Was your guys' box sent from Ontario or California?

I got my bubblemail from apple inc ontario on the 6th of March, dropped it off at UPS on the 7th, and I just got an email saying:

Step 3 Return

March 9, 2012: Product replacement pending

I hope this one is quick!

Got my replacement last week. It was just an iPod though, no cable or anything else. Did any of you guys get a cable or anything else with yours?

it was explicitly stated in the empty box letter that nothing else other than an iPod will be shipped back to you. so no, I did not get anything other than a iPod nano in a pink baggie

jumped thru a bunch of hoops on apples support site to get in contact with them. they were very helpful on the phone and said they will send a box out ASAP.



they also said they have gotten thru the initial bog down and are processing replacements pretty quick now

Do any of you have problem charging the new nanos in the car? It can only play but it doesn't charge anymore.

It's an iPod charger that came with the car. Connects to the back of the head unit I believe.

if its used for playing music on your headunit, then it wont charge it.

only the older ipods (classic) will charge. Apple changed the way the ipods charge after the older models.

Yeah, I got this problem too, and I did some research into it a while back. Apple changed the position of the pin that is used to charge the iPod on the newer models. Also, the voltage changed to 5V or something like that, can't remember.. In any case, it's annoying as hell when you just left your house and the ipod battery dies.. Also, I find with the new iPod, my head unit (an old Alpine) fails to recognize the iPod when I turn the ignition on. It just says "searching" until I unplug the iPod and plug it back in. Looks like I'll probably have to get a new head unit for my car if I want it to work properly, thanks Apple!

^ Yeah my brother's in-car charger won't work for this Nano, when it worked for the 1st gen. I ended up buying a car charger and aux cable. I think having 8gb instead of 2gb is worth the 2 extra cables.

So I requested the shipping box on 02/24/12, Apple received it on 03/07, shipped out the replacement yesterday! Should be here in two business days. Are there any other alternatives to the Lunatik watch strap?
