I can't seem to get my ipod radio to play when docked in the OnBeat. I can play my music though, just no radio

Asked by: karya
You shouldn't be having issues with playing radio from your iPod to the ONBEAT MICRO docked or not. Once your iPod is connected to the speaker via the AUX connection, it should be automatic that the phone switch speakers from internal to external speakers. There might be a setting in your iPod radio that bypassed this process, try checking the setting of the radio on your iPod. If the setting shows that the device is still using the internal speakers, change it to external and you should be good to go.
