Not ideal for everyday listening to iPod music in most situations, volume does not get high enough

The RCA RC59i is a clock radio with a built-in iPod docking station. It’s compatible with all iPods, but no iPhones. Regardless, the device hosts a large .6” LED display for easy viewing, an audio line for accepting MP3 music, and a total of four alarm settings—two per person. Included also of course is AM/FM radio, and the ability to wake up to either the radio or the attached iPod. Unfortunately you can’t wake up to your MP3 player. One notable feature is that the unit can recharge your iPod. Overall users say the RCA RC59i works well for listening to the radio. However, there have been a bevy of complaints regarding its iPod functionality, such as the iPod dock breaking down, or the dock not being compatible with iPod 5G.
