I have a Bluetooth speaker, so no cable required for my iPhone 4S or
iTouch. Cost about $60 in the US back in April. Circular and
comparatively small (about 10cm diameter and 3cm deep). Very easy to
connect (go to settings, turn Bluetooth on, and then select the
speaker). No batteries, so it needs to be recharged through a USB
port or charger, but it doesn't seem to use that much power so it has
always lasted the day easily. It seems to save power on the iPhone /
iTouch compared to connecting it via a cable. Your iPod should have
Bluetooth capability. My iTouch does.
You can put it on the ground (or in the fork of a tree), back away 20
metres and play the call in short bursts. This worked brilliantly
for King Rail, Clapper Rail, Northern Bobwhite, etc in the US.
I am not at home at the moment, so I can't remember the make and
model. JBW Wireless or something similar. Bright red was the only
colour available at the time.
