Without lifting your thumb, use the Click Wheel to navigate the alphabet until you find 
the first letter of the item you’re looking for.

This takes you to the first item in the list beginning with that letter. Items beginning 
with a symbol or number appear before the letter “A.”




Lift your thumb momentarily (or stop moving your thumb for about one second) to 
return to normal scrolling.




Use the Click Wheel to finish navigating to the item you want.


Searching Music


You can search iPod nano for songs, playlists, album titles, artist names, podcasts, and 
audiobooks. The search feature doesn’t search notes, calendar items, contacts, or lyrics.

the Center button to enter each character.

iPod nano starts searching as soon as you enter the first character, displaying the 
results on the search screen. For example, if you enter “b,” then iPod nano displays all 
music items containing the letter “b.” If you enter “ab,” iPod nano displays all items 
containing that sequence of letters.
