    Do you have the TQi radio? If not, you'll need it with the docking base.

    +1 to what Double G said and the TQI is only compatible with Gen 2-4 iPod touch and iPhone

    hmmm i read it was only compatible with gen 2-4. I had the opportunity to get a gen 5 ipod touch for pretty cheap and passed under the preconceived notion it wasnt compatible

    It sticks way out because of the adaptor but works fine.

    is the temp on the iphone as accurate as a temp gun? I have the Traxxas on board temp gauge and the telemetry temp is based on the same type of heat sensor and i dont really trust it. The on board always reads way hotter than my temp gun.

    I haven't compared them yet. I would say reading higher is better than lower I guess. I did seem that my last run my temp was running a lot higher than I wanted. I'll break out my temp gage next run and compare.
