Fire Bird Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

Hello!

So I was going through settings and saw Nike+iPod. So I was like "Why not?" The turn on button was greyed out. I closed the app, and reopened it and then wasn't. so I could turn it on. I put my weight in and everything, but everytime I open the app, it immediately crashes. Why? Please help! Also, the sensor is greyed out. This is an iPod Touch 4th generation iOS 5.1

Thank you so much!


iPod touch, iOS 5.1

    Did you purchase the required sensor?

    I need a sensor? I thought it was built in. But I can't even turn it on or off. I'm lucky if I can. I asked my friend who has the same version and everything. She pressed the sensor button and it said walk around a little bit and she doesn't have a sensor. and she said Nike opened right away. Those are the main things I wish to have fixed.

    Okay, I found a weird way to turn Nike on and off, but it still doesn't help. I close settings, go to page two, go back to page one, open settings and I can turn Nike on and off.

    Do you know what Nike plus is?

     

    The iphone program is only part of the product.  The iphone simply recieves the signal from the sensor in your shoe ( which you would have to purche and pair with the iphone) and registers the information, processes and shares it with Nike Plus online.

     

    You would need the sensor to use it.

    Only the new Nano has the sensor built-in.

     

    The iPod Touch Users Guide includes:

     

    Linking a sensor

    Nike + iPod bases its workout data on a signal from a sensor (sold separately) that you attach

    to your shoe. The first time you start a workout, you’re prompted to activate your sensor, which

    automatically links the sensor to iPod touch. You can also use Nike + iPod settings to link a sensor

    to iPod touch.

    Okay, thank you very much. But I still have one other question. Why is the "Sensor" button greyed out? My friend's isn't and she doesn't have a Nike sensor. And the app crashes. Is there a way to fix that?

     

    I now understand that the iPod Touch does not have a sensor. Thank you all for that.

    - Try a reset. It cures many ills and nothiong is lost.

    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - It could be that once you pair the sensor to the iPod it is no longer grayed out.

    Tried that 3 times. No luck. Please don't say restore. I've done enough in the past month.. and I've looked elsewhere where others tried that and no luck.

    You answered your own question.

    Here's the thing though, I've done it before when I had iOS 4.x.x (I was playing around) and the sensor wasn't greyed out and it said walk around. I didn't have any sensor though.
