    Hello,

    You mention an add-on for a ipod for AM/FM functionality. Care to mention manufacturer.

  • When I mentioned the add-on I was referring only to FM functionality. The manufacturer is Apple and it is called the Apple iPod Radio Remote. Here is the link: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MA070G/D?fnode=MTY1NDA0Ng&mco=MjMxMTg

    There are other manufacturers that make similar add-ons, one of those is Griffin and they make the iFM. Here is a link: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/ifm

    I hope these links help.

    Has anyone found an automobile charger for the Witness?

    • You could easily use something like this DC to USB adapter

      No auto charger so I use one of the small inverters which allows for a usb cable use in the car.

    C. Crane sells one by Boxwave for the Witness, that can be used both in a vehicle and indoors with a wall socket. Other possibilities I assume would work (just ordered a Witness myself): I already have a thin, small power inverter (by Cobra) for my car, and it includes a USB port so I’ll probably try the Witness in it. And/or, if I get the Witness’ optional AC adapter I could always use that with the inverter.

    My zen Mozaic is exactly the same, except the battery lasts up to 30+ hours(lithium-ion battery) oh and it recharges in about 20-30min.

    • It is close but missing one big feature and that is the ability to play and record AM radio. Most MP3 players are lacking this feature and they would all benefit by having it.

    Also the Mozaic only has voice recording (in low-bitrate WAV format); no recording from FM and no line-in. The Witness has voice recording plus line-in recording, so it can record (MP3 at your choice of kbps) from just about any audio source. Can also program up to 20 timer recordings, including choice of all or certain days; or just one-touch record for a selectable time period; etc. etc. Quite different devices, these are.

    If you want to protect this unit, I bought a case made for a Zune.. their “80 Gig” unit(made by “DLO”), it fits the CC Witness almost perfectly..I saw/bought it at Best Buy, for 32 bucks. I just cut a small hole in the place where the input line is so I can use it while it’s in the case. Also, I bought the Wave Box charger that works both in the house or in the car, works great, it is a “smart” charger that knows what and how much juice to put out…it runs about 30 dollars +/- . This is a great little radio/MP# player !

    Anyway to attach witness to external speakers? Like an ipod docking station?

    • Absolutely, just plug the speaker cable into the headphone jack on the witness.

    Used my Witness with the optional silicone case.  In high humidity, condensation formed inside the silcone case.  Enough dripped through to impact the MENU button.  Suggest not using this case outdoors in mist and fog and definitely not in rain.
