I have already done a full rest of my ipod nano (6th gen I think - the one with a screen and a clip at the back, about a year old) but still, every time I go to calibrate my ipod after running, it crashes. I keep the receiver plugged in throughout my run to connect to my shoe pod. It used to work perfectly but I recalibrated it a month ago, and when I went to calibrate it further, it crashed and has continued to crash ever since despite the full reset. 


It still records the run, just the wrong **** distance!


Any help?

    Since you have already tried a hard reset, what about a full restore?  A restore of the iPod in iTunes will wipe all content from the device, reset it to factory settings, and reload a fresh copy of the iPod's software onto the device. So it should correct any sort of software issue or data corruption that your Nano may be experiencing.

    Not that I'm aware of. :S  I'm not sure what to offer for ideas at this point. Perhaps somebody else will chime in and have more to offer. Sorry!

    Thanks for the update. It crossed my mind at one point to suggest a new sensor but I let it go. Either way I am glad to hear that. As for the problems uploading I have seen this issue crop up for a numbe of Nike+ users in the past month or two. You might be able to look for some of these lengthy threads in the iPod Nano forums.
