A way to quickly go to main menu?

Hi,

Just got my 10 Gig 3G and lovin it so far. A couple of noob questions (sorry if been asked, I tried searching first):

1. Is there a quick way to go to the Main menu, or do I just have to hit the 'Menu' button a few times? I tried holding or double-tapping but it didn't do anything.

2. Can you display more info about a song, like bit rate? Just curious, doesn't seem to be the case.

3. If you keep the iPod in your pocket, do you need to turn on 'Hold'? I've been experimenting, and it seems like you don't need to. I like how the buttons and wheels aren't strictly pressure-sensitive (maybe measures conductivity from your skin).

The iPod interface is golden, just like iTunes!

Thanks,
Steve

As far as I know, there is no quick way to the top menu. This is a bit of a hassle for me as on my Nomad Jukebox 3, the top menu was just a button press away. A double tap to get back to root would be a great idea. Maybe in the next firmware.

Detailed track info is another missing feature. All you get is what the iPod shows in the "Now playing" screen.

As for keeping it in your pocket, it depends on if the buttons are facing out or in. If in then, yes, you'll need to use the hold switch as the buttons will be activated by your thigh.

And I agree, the interface is excellent. My wife picked up my iPod having not so much as read about them and was very surprised at just how intuitive it is. Within seconds she was zipping around the menus with ease. Very impressive.
