Archived - Nike + iPod: Using multiple Nike + iPod sensors

You can use your Nike + iPod Receiver and your iPod nano, iPod touch (2nd generation), iPod touch (3rd generation), or iPhone 3GS1 with more than one Nike + iPod Sensor. However, each time you introduce a new sensor, you must link that sensor to your device and receiver.

 Linking a new sensor to your iPod nano

  1. Connect the receiver2 to an iPod nano.
  2. Put on the shoes with the new sensor and make sure there is no other sensor nearby. (You may have to walk around to activate the new sensor so your receiver can detect it.)
  3. On the iPod nano, choose Nike+iPod > Settings > Sensor > Link and follow the onscreen instructions.
  4. Once your iPod nano links to your sensor, a message appears noting that your "iPod has found the new sensor".

Linking a new sensor to your iPod touch (2nd generation), iPod touch (3rd generation) or iPhone 3GS

Note: These devices have an internal receiver so you do not need an external receiver to link to your sensor.

  1. Tap Settings on the Home screen.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings page and tap the Nike + iPod option.
  3. Put on the shoes with the new sensor, and make sure there is no other sensor nearby.
  4. Enable the Nike + iPod feature by moving the slider to the ON position and then tap the Sensor option. Allow 5-10 seconds for your device to link to your sensor. (You may have to walk around to activate the new sensor so your device's internal receiver can detect it.)
  5. If your device has previously been linked to another sensor, you should see the following message:

  6. Tap the Link New option.
  7. When prompted, walk around in order to link the sensor to your device.

 

Additional Information

Notes

  1. The iPod touch (2nd generation), iPod touch (3rd generation), and iPhone 3GS have an internal receiver; no externally attached receiver is required.
  2. If you connect the receiver to a different iPod and use it with the same sensor, the receiver remembers your settings. You don’t need to relink or recalibrate.
