Fuze+ Feedback and Feature Request Thread

One of the few things I want:

When you click into an artist in the artists display let us swipe right or left to get to an “all songs by this artist” type view.

I have a simple request i keep forgetting to mention and i’m not sure if its been posted already but…

I’d REALLY love to see an option added in the options menu to kill the resume feature.

I have never one single time said yes to the prompt that comes up about resuming a track

as far as i’m concerned its just an irratating pop up / nag.

I doubt anything would be done about this, doesn’t seem like something Sansa would change.

Anyone else agree with me ?

YES.

Yes and also allow removal of the recently played “10 songs” list. I find no use for it when all I want is to randomly play all my songs.

The sleep function is very important to me,

But unfortunately it has no memory for any sleep settings, so EVERY time I use my payer I have to reset the sleep function.

Isn’t there a possibility to keep the sleep function as it was set, until I change it again.

All other settings stay the same until you change them, so why can’t you do the same for the sleep settings ?

Or give an extra option: once/ allways

This is the way it’s designed to work. If it were as you ask, every time you turn it on it would turn off at the preset time interval whether you are planning to go to sleep or not.

Agree!

In additional when I used Sansa Clips, it remebered the reading position (file and location into the file) of each book which I read. Sansa Fuse + dosn’t have this nice feature.

A firmware update would be a wonderful Christmas present!!

Swiping looks cool but doesn’t add much to functionality, an option to turn it off and just have N,S,W,E and Centre tap and hold to navigate would be helpful for people (me) having trouble getting the hang of swiping… 

just don’t swipe then?

It’s hard not to swipe accidentally - we’re not all youngsters with steady hands.

I’m a youngster with steady hands and I still swipe accidentally all the time and skip to the beginning or next podcast and then have to fast forward back to the place where I left off.  I miss my old Creative Zen Nano+.  It was tiny and only held 512Mb, but it went through the washing machine several times and still worked steadily for six years.

Change “shuffle all” to “play all” like the clip zip.

Hi all,

My requests:

  1. Bluetooth capabilities. I use my Sansa fuze+ at the gym and I really hate the cords

  2. Make it easier to create a play list by dragging and dropping the music/audio files via Windows explorer to a sibdirectory called PLAYLIST

  3. Slow the scrolling down. I find it too fast

  4. The deletion of a file needs to be faster. When I deleted a podcast, I thought the Sansa had frozen.

  5. separate the books and podcasts sections. I found it disconcerting the first time to see my podcasts in the books subdirectory. Since then, I don’t worry about it.

Accessories:

I want a proper armband holder for the Sansa, I bought one from a 3rd company and the elastic strap is far to tight to wear at the gym.

Polycarbonite shells

belt clips for the various shells/Sansa holders

  1. can’t happen for Fuze+

  2. easy as pie if you use WMP 11 or up

  3. don’t swipe so fast or don’t swipe at all.

  4. not much can be done about that, why not just delate it from a computer?

  5. there is a podcast dir but not a seperate menu item.

agree with last point.

Alienkid 1o:

Thanks. Well at least have more bluetooth attachements available. There’s a company called Bluridge or something that does one that uses the 3,5 mm jack

Thanks again

That’s upto the other companies not Sandisk. Can you link that?

Hi all:

Sure here’s the link at amazon.ca

Spending more on this buetooth headphone jack adapter/transmitter gizmo than you do for the device itself ($90) to get reduced sound quality and only eliminate 3 feet of small wire to the earphones seems silly in my opinion.

Run the earphone cord inside your shirt if it bothers you or gets in the way at the gym and use that money (if it’s burning a hole in your pocket) to buy some additional memory cards. :wink:

Requests

  • Browsing by letter shortcuts.
  • An option to turn off the card submenu.
  • An option to display the battery charge left as a percentage instead of as a bar on the upper right corner of the display screen.
  • Display the volume as the number of decibels below reference.
  • Increase the width of the display area for song, artist, and album when a song is playing or paused.  It should use the entire width of the display screen.
  • An option to display the song’s bitrate, whether it is a constant bitrate or variable bitrate, format, genre, ReplayGain information, year, etc.—like on the Fuze.
  • A visualizer like the one on the Fuze.
  • The songs start ten-seconds into the music.  When the Fuze+ is turned on, songs should start at the beginning.
  • Extensive testing of an MP3 player before it is released.  Perhaps SanDisk should consider sending out prototypes to a few individuals and ask for feedback and requests so that the firmware can be improved before release.
  • Use open-source firmware—Rockbox.  If this is not possible, at least try to make the firmware as similar to Rockbox as possible.

What I like about the Fuze+ compared to the Fuze

  • The film strip graphical user interface.
  • The power button instead of the Fuze’s power slider.
  • The larger display screen.
  • Dedicated volume control.
  • The placeholders for missing album art—attractive designs.
  • Displaying the albums in italics.
  • Using bars for the volume indicator.  But number of decibels below reference would be even better.
  • The looping of all menus and submenus.
  • Radio Data System.
  • Switching off submenus.
  • Micro-B instead of proprietary USB receptacle.
