Like a lot of you I use my device to listen to audiobooks and pocasts. Just converted to Fiio (M6) and am curious how you set it up for podcasts and audiobooks?

You just add audiobooks normally, as the FiiO products don't have special ways to handle audiobooks, unfortunately.

If you want to split the audiobook by chapter, you can either use an editor like Audacity and manually split the audiobook, or, if it is an m4b format, there is a free tool to split it automatically. See here:

It doesn't always remember position, and no more for audiobooks / podcasts than any other audio. I'm not sure, but it will hold a position at least until if or when you navigate away from the track, or turn it off, etc.

In other words, it generally won't remember position, but then I don't remember the ipods holding position for audiobooks either.

Hope that helps.

Edit - actually I don't know the specifics of the M6, but am speaking for FiiO players in general (I have the X1II). If anyone knows better, hopefully they will reply here.

I have an M11 and use the smart audiobook player does all the chapters and bookmarks in multiple titles etc. I downloaded mine from the google play store.  Have a look for the apk file might work for you.  It is the best audiobook app I have ever used.
