    Question Who has a "I" device I'm sure I'm not the only one?

    We all or at least most of us know that the TQi is required to have an I device to reach the full potential of the XO-1. I think that it is good that you need a I device to reach the full 100mph. It is good because it tells you all the temps, rpm, mph, and more. But many of you would prefer that you can just get a $30 screen instead of dropping $80 on a used iPod touch but then again if you can afford a $1000 RC car the you can surely drop $80 on a ipod touch. Also many of us already have ipod touches and iphones. So tell me would you rather maybe spend $30 on a screen just for the TQi or and I device that you can do what ever you want. For me I don't really care because I have a ipod touch 3 gen.

    I don't have an iPhone, and nobody I know has an iPhone, they all have Blackberries. A Blackberry is the only smart phone that people can have where I work, because it's the only one you can get without a camera.

How about apps for Droids or Backberries. Or better yet some other way to unlock this car without a smart device. I wonder how many people like me will want one of these but can not use it to its full potential. Lots of lost sales here.
    Please get your facts straight prior to posting. An iPod Touch (like the one in front of me ATM) does not require a data plan. [I'm not sure if a second-hand iPhone does.] There are tens or hundreds of thousands of free WiFi hotspots. I took my son to get a haircut Saturday and THEY even had a free WiFi hotspot. No data subscription required, which is good because I refuse to pay ANOTHER $30.00 per month for it.

    Feel free to disagree about whether this was a good move for Traxxas. Opinions are subjective, but when you start posting erroneous information, your bias becomes very apparent.

    I currently own:

    iTouch 4G 64GB
    iPhone 4S 32GB

    I will not own a mac, but nothing beats the iTouch, iPhone or iPad.

    $30 extra could put a cheap display on the controller but you also need to put in a bigger computer and more memory. With an iPod attached the controller can relay exactly what it relieves to the iPod and the iPod can do the rest, and show it on a retina display

    You don't need to be on a plan to run the app, which is why buying a second hand unlocked iPhone will work. As long as you have a apple app store log on you can run the app. Which is why they say you can run the Traxxas app on a touch. You can't make calls on a touch so picking up a second hand touch or iPhone is easy and there is no need to venture into a phone store and sign your life away for two years. I have an iPad that I use every day and with a cable could run the x-01 telemetry also.

    For $1100 you shouldn't have to buy ANYTHING else........just my opinion.

    The requirements are the requirements and are not likely to change. This is off topic and has been beaten to death.

    my bad on the off topic part. my reading and comprehension skills tend to diminish after hours


    As far as it being beat to death........this is my first trip in here to check out the supercar and to do my research. So I wouldn't have the slightest clue as to what has or hasn't been beaten to death

    This is the topic. If you would like to post general design and/or marketing complaints, do it outside this thread.

    For those with a iPhone / iTouch, go download the app, it's pretty sick...

    I bet the reason traxxas used the idevices is because the size of the android phones their is small ones and big ones the sizes could have been a big problem so they went with the idevices it would save them a lot of time too.
