Remote

Written By Dan Veres, Cape Coral, Florida on Tuesday, January 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The radio buttons are awful, but with the remote ,it becomes better to use the radio. They shouldn't sell the radio without the remote.

Remote...YAY!!!

Written By Monty, Grove City, OH on Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The remote was included in the Head unit purchase. I like it! Honestly, it probably will not get used much but I like the thought of having a remote. It's always about "guys & their toys".

No complain

I got this free with the purchase of a HU, and I cannot complain. Only improvement I can think of within this short span of ownership - the folder up / down buttons to browse the USB drive would have made it a perfect one!

Handy Little Item

Written By Edward, Los Angeles,CA on Sunday, April 12, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
At first I thought this was a ridiculous unit- a remote for a radio that is one foot away, but the controls are more logical and the buttons larger than the head unit,which makes using the remote a common occurrence.

Nice Addition

Written By HsSrvnt, Grants Pass, OR on Friday, February 06, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great, free addition to the radio. Nice to have a mute button. Wish it was on my stereo but at least I have one and don't have to have my arm hanging up towards the stereo. I can relax with my hand on my lap and switch my music with ease.

Great addition to Package

Written By Wilzer, Florida on Sunday, October 26, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Came bundled in package but was a big part of buying decision because I didn't want to have to fiddle with radio while driving. Works great when you learn it. Con: Infrared not RF so it needs to be pointing directly at radio or bounce off reflective surface.

Decent remote

Remote is fairly intuitive and mirrors the major functions of the Clarion head unit. Works well and has a good range and good response. A nice addition to the product.

This thing is great for when you want to crank the stereo and subs, but you are worried about cops. I keep this in my hand while I drive, and I can either press pause or mute when I see a cop
