  • Just checked, the email you sent just a few minutes is in the queue, so you should hear back shortly. I don’t see the previous email so there may have been a typo or server issue on our side. My sincere apologies, and thanks for following up.

  • Just put my Bad Elf onto the 30 pin to lightning adapter and plugged it into my Ipad mini, and it works great. No problem at all and does everything it always did….

  • Glad to hear it! So far we’ve been able to get everyone up and running. Rumor is that Apple has fixed the GPS-related bugs in iOS 6/6.0.1 in their next release (6.1) which is in beta now. Our support guys need some relief ;-)

  • Hi I sent out an email last week and have not received a response yet.

  • Thanks for detailed response. The Nike +, does have a dock port wireless link it uses for talking to shoe sensor. The latest nano also has internal inertial sensors. Perhaps Nike worked direct with apple to codevelop or something. They also have the Nike + app on nano.

    SMOP? ( simple matter of programming)
