Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.36.03

I don't believe anyone has mentioned one other negative side effect of the new lock feature, which is that the new "lock" picture is much more opaque than what was on the last lock screen (which did not feature a picture of a lock at all), making it difficult to simply look at track information that's already playing...you often have to unlock the device first, especially if you're out in the sun.

NVM backlight time has nothing to do with it. It's about 15 second from locking to being able to use the volume buttons. Very annoying.

I tried it several times today. Time between unlocking and working volume: less than 5 seconds. 3 seconds at most. And I always touch the touchpad pulling the player out of my pocket.

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.36.03

unlocking then vol isn't the problem it's trying to use them right after it's locked/the lock screen appears(like when you touch the touch pad whie trying to up volume in your pocket.)

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.36.03

Awesome ! Thanks for the firmware update !

 

Changing the lock Functionality was a great idea. I like it better now..

 

Just a reminder that myself and probably others chose the Fuze+ mostly because of its FLAC support.

so ironing out the tagging bugs on that would cool.

 

I popped by randomily to see if there was a firmware update and to my suprise there was Smiley Happy

 

Good Job Sansa Crew !

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.36.03

em, using the keys while locked? Isn't locking supposed to prevent that?

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.36.03

The lock function is intended to lock (inhibit) the touchpad.  The hard keys, the top on / off button and the side volume buttons are not locked.  At least, in theory.  The volume buttons are temporarily locked, and will operate after a delay.

The touchpad doesn't get locked for me with 02.36.03A.
