Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Has worked as needed. Almost plug and play. A little practice on the how to use. But a little practice back and forth and works great. The reciver can be out of the way. Glad i purchased this item.

Pros: Easy to mount. Various ways to mount the unit.

Cons: A longer mounting cord from reciver to unit. Glad I purchased the extra line.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I mounted this control on the helm of my cruiser so I don't have to go bellow to adjust the radio. It is on e of the best add-ons ever. It looks good and works like a champ. I would recommend it to any one who needs some flexibility on their boat.

I've had this for about a year now installed on my jet boat and this little remote
is perfect! It is mounted on the transom, near the swim platform, and is
consistently bombarded with water and submerged at times. This remote has
been flawless from the start and shows no signs of water penetration or wear.

-recessed install option
-easy to read display in the daytime
-backlit display for night time
-access nearly all same options as on head unit... EQs, filters, searching,
menus, etc.
-title/artist display
-wired.... no batteries/reliable

-recessed install hardware seems to lack some strength but after the install, it
was solid.
-volume button needs to be pressed precisely in the right location or you could
be activating the wrong button
