Setup Instructions
STEP 1 - SportCommand Receiver Setup
Power on your iPod. Then, plug the SportCommand Receiver
into the bottom of the iPod (Fig. 1). The Receiver powers
on automatically. Once the unit is on, we recommend
engaging the hold switch on the iPod to prevent accidental
button presses.
Note: The SportCommand Receiver can be used whether or not you use an iPod case.

STEP 2 - SportCommand Remote Setup
1. Turn your Remote with the buttons facing up. Using
a coin or something similar, turn the battery door
counterclockwise and gently remove from the Remote
(Fig. 2).
2. Insert the battery with the (+) side facing up (Fig. 3) and
gently screw the battery door back into place. There are
graphics on the Remote that indicate when the battery
door is in the locked position.
3. Now press any of the Remote’s buttons for the
SportCommand Remote and Receiver to pair up. The
green light on the Remote will blink when the first
button-press command from the Remote reaches the
Receiver correctly.

Operating Instructions
Connect any pair of headphones or speakers to the
iPod via the 3.5mm headphone port. Place the iPod
and Receiver into your pocket or backpack, using a
case for extra protection.
You can also keep your iPod stationary with a stereo
or boom box and remotely control up to 50 feet.
Simply connect a 3.5mm audio cable from the iPod
to the line-in port on a stereo receiver or speakers.

Attach the Remote to the VELCRO® patch on the
armband with the control panel facing up (Fig. 4).
Place the armband around your arm. Use the included
extension to improve your fit, if necessary (Fig. 5).
If you prefer to wear the remote on your belt,
backpack, or attached to another object, use the
included carabiner clip. Simply guide it through
the loop on the back of the Remote (Fig. 6).

You can now use your SportCommand Remote to
control the iPod device’s play/pause, skip-forward,
skip-backward, and volume up/down functions while
your iPod stays protected at all times. We recommend
engaging the hold switch on the iPod to avoid
accidentally initiating the iPod controls.

Operating Instructions
Automatic Sleep Mode
If there is no key press for 30 seconds, the Transmitter will automatically go into sleep
mode. The Transmitter will wake up with the next key press but it will not transmit
the signal to the Receiver. The Transmitter will function for the subsequent key press.
Note: Shuffle and repeat controls are not compatible with iPod 3G models (10GB, 15GB, 20GB, 30GB, 40GB). When used
with the iPod with color display, SportCommand lets you scroll through your slideshows or presentations—wirelessly.
Water-Resistant Design
The SportCommand Remote features a water-resistant, hand-washable design. Water
beads off the surface of the Remote and cannot damage its functionality. However,
the Remote is not submergible. Avoid using it during water-submersion activities
such as swimming, surfing, and bathing. The Remote can be cleaned by hand with a
little soap and water.
LED Chart
Every time you push a button on the Remote, the green lights on the Remote will
blink, indicating that the signal has been received correctly. Shield the Remote from
direct sunlight to improve legibility of the LED.
The Remote’s battery level is automatically checked after every button press. If the
battery level is low, the Remote’s red light blinks once on each button press. The
low battery should be replaced soon. The SportCommand will continue to function
normally until the battery is exhausted.
Troubleshooting
Remote is not powering on or acknowledging a button press.
Ensure that the Remote battery is inserted correctly, with the (+) facing up, and the
battery door is turned and locked into position.
After connecting the Receiver and Remote, there is no sound.
• Select a song on the iPod and press “PLAY”.
• Make sure the headphones are correctly plugged into the iPod.
• Make sure the iPod is powered on.
• Make sure the Receiver is securely attached to the bottom of the iPod.
• Repeat STEP 1 and STEP 2 of the setup section.
