I've got a 7th generation Nano.  Using the Apple Lightning adapter for my dock, I get no radio reception.  What's going on?

    You need to have your headphones inserted - they're the aerial.


    I've tried a variety of headphones and they all seem to give reception. Not sure how you're affected when using your dock ie whether you can still have earphones inserted. You may need to get a double male cable and insert one end in the ipod and one in your dock (if it has that facility).
