Why, you ask? Because I have a hot tub with popup speakers and an iPhone dock in the side panel. However, to pause it or skip songs, it's a bit of a pain. I was wondering if anyone has come across a little waterproof bluetooth remote that would allow me to pause/play/skip songs from right in the hot tub?

Not sure about that, but Apple makes a $19 remote for your iPhone/iPad/iPod and also Mac. LINK You could put it in a plastic sandwich bag to protect it from water splashing on it.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

I actually have one or two of those. Didn't know it would work with the iPhone. That's not a bad idea. It doesn't need to "float" or anything, just didn't want to be grabbing it (or my iPhone) directly with wet hands.

Thanks. Now I just have to figure out where I put it...

Unfortunately, this only works for an iPod/iPhone that is in a powered dock or connected to the Mac (as far as I can tell).
