Docking

Can Fuze be used with Ipod docking stations. The slots look compatible.

I just got the Griffin PowerDock for Sansa on eBay and it works great.


Amazon has it for around twelve bucks.  I paid about half of that on eBay.

It may be called a "dock", but it's just a charging station.  To me an honest-to-god dock is where you put your player and it plays through the dock's speakers & is controlled through the dock with a remote.  A kind-of/sorta dock is one that plays through speakers, but uses the Fuze's controls.

Well, I can connect to to my computer, too, so it does more than charge, but you're right about everything else.  Just trying to be helpful.

OK, I was just going by what Griffin said about the PowerDock (http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/powerdock) - no mention of connecting to ones computer.

Re: Docking

Sansa makes a dock that will work with the Fuze (but apparently not the Fuze+). It includes a remote control with six buttons, and also has a variable-level line out. It _can_ connect to your PC USB port also, though the Fuze will not play music while the USB data connections are active. The Sansa dock includes adapters for a few earlier MP3 models, but not one specifically for the fuze. But it still works! You just don't get a strong mechanical base. The Fuze is "standing up" with only it's dock connection to support it.

I am in the process of making a car dock using information I got from the Sansa dock. I just want the Fuze to start and stop automatically when I start and shut off the car. Sounds simple, but the tricky part is always in the details.

I was looking forward to upgrading to a Fuze+ when the project is finished, but now that I know there is no dock connector on the +, those hopes have been dashed.
