Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Extremely easy to install. Great remote features and display is a +++. When M502 head unit is connected to Pandora or Spotify via blue tooth the remote displays all my song titles.

Pros: Easy to install. Display is a plus.

Cons: Whish there was a white and gray color scheme option rather than black and chrome.

Perect design

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This remote is larger than and older model Clarion remote I used, and I like the larger size, The remote has easy to use and see bottons and screen. It's very intuitive, easy to use! It has a back lit screen for night use, which is great. If it's too brite for some you can place a piece of Tinted Solar film over the glass screen.

Pros: Large Size, with easy to use and see buttons, back lit screen for nite use.

Cons: None!

Allows for full contol of the stereo and IPOD. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Pros: This is exactly what I was looking for. It is very easy to use

Cons: The buttons are very firm and adjusting the stereo could be a little difficult.

A Good Choice

Written By Janine, Prescott WI on Wednesday, August 08, 2012

We installed two of these remotes using the splitter cable, one on the fly bridge the other in the aft cabin, with the Clarion marine radio in the salon. They are wonderful and allow good control over the audio player.

I've got one of these in my boat. Wish I would have added it a long time ago. It's awesome and looks awesome too! I can control my Ipod with it since I have the Ipod cable hooked up. Sit in the water and drink beer and flip thru your music.

Pros: Awesome

Cons: None

Product Research


Overview: The MW1 is a hardwired remote control with an LCD display, it is compatible with select Clarion marine head units, including CMV1, CMD6, CMD7, CMD8, CMD9, CMS1, CMS5, M303, M309, M502, and M505 (as of 11/1/2015). The MW1 has backlit rubber buttons with the following functions:

  • Power/Source
  • Volume Up/Down
  • Up/Down/Left/Right Cursor buttons
  • Enter
  • Play/Pause/Mute
  • Menu/Band

LCD Display: The display briefly shows the volume when it's changed, and can be set to show the time of day or source information; chapter/track, elapsed time, song title (for iPod and CDs with CD Text), band (AM/FM), frequency, and preset number.

Wiring: The attached 12" cable on the MW1 connects to the back of the head unit. Because the attached cable is only a foot long, in most cases an extension cable will be needed (item number 020MWRXCRT, sold separately). Up to three extension cables can be daisy-chained together.

Note: The MW1 can be used in conjunction with Clarion's MF1 marine RF remote control (020MF1, sold separately). This type of setup requires a proprietary Y-adapter (020MWRYC, sold separately).

Durable: The MW1 meets ASTM B117 salt/fog exposure and ASTM D4329 UV exposure standards.

Flush Mount: The remote comes with an aluminum flush mount C-clamp. The clamp attaches to the two M4 machine screw studs on the back of the remote and holds it in place.

Remote Dimensions:

  • Diameter: 3.607"
  • Cutout Diameter: 2.994"
  • Mounting Depth: 2.255"
  • Mounting Height: 0.603"
