[iPhone] iPhone 5 + Nike+iPod help calibrating.. Hello there all fellow Apple/Macintosh users.
So, my iPhone 5 came with the Nike+iPod application. It says walk around the activate your censor.
I have been walking around for awhile, and still no response. I don't have the Nike clip-on that are required for iPods, and iPod touch's, etc.
I'm just wondering, how do I get this working? Do I need the Nike clip on as well? Even though I have an iPhone 5? Because according to what I have read, it says only the iPod's and iPod Touch's require this.
So do I need the clip on as well? And if so, where do I buy the Nike clip on?
Because each time I try to calibrate, or start a workout, it just says "Walk around to activate your censor" which I have been doing, and it just sits there.. Can anyone that is familiar with the Nike+iPod app help me out with this one?
Do I need the clip on censor thing?
Thanks in Advance.
The Nike +iPod app does need the sensor, there are many free apps including Nike +running which is free that use the built-in GPS in the phone for tracking, no sensor needed.

The Nike+iPod app will not work on the iPhone 5 as far as I can tell (been there, done that), Nike pretty much phased it out unless you have an iPhone 4 -- instead, you should use the Nike+Running app (or other GPS-based apps) that fourboxers mentioned.

The Nike app that's built into iOS relies on a sensor that fits under the insole in Nike+ running shoes. It may also need to be turned on. The sensor is $19 at the Nike Store, Apple Store, and a number of other places that carry Nike products.
I used to run in the city and found the built-in app much more accurate than the GPS version though I haven't used it in over a year. Things may have changed.
Stacy is right, you need the pod to work with the app. I was at a Nike outlet and they had them there. You can also get a pouch the sensor sits in. Once you calibrate it at a track it is pretty accurate.
