Our take on the Kenwood KCA-RC107MR

by Ken Nail
Kenwood

Keep your Kenwood marine receiver in a safe spot out of the elements. The KCA-RC107MR wired remote allows you to access all major functions of your Kenwood marine receiver, as well as control peripherals like an iPod or satellite radio tuner. Best of all, the remote's LCD screen lets you keep tabs on the source and music you're listening to.

You don't have to be in line of sight when you use this wired remote, so you can mount the remote almost anywhere to control a receiver mounted below decks. You can even connect multiple remotes to allow control over your receiver from several locations.

Highlights:

  • controls select Kenwood receivers, along with iPods and other peripherals connected to the receiver
  • mounting hardware included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Marine Rated: The Kenwood KCA-RC107MR marine wired remote control is designed to withstand the harsh marine environment.

Compatibility: The KCA-RC107MR marine wired remote control is compatible with the Kenwood KMR-700 Marine iPod/USB Receiver (up to 3 remotes can be connected) and the KMR-440U Marine CD Receiver (only 1 remote can be connected).

LCD Display: The add-on marine wired remote features an LCD display which lets you view source information, so you can mount your KMR-700 or KMR-440U marine headunit out of sight. The LCD display provides an adjustable contrast (0-10) for better visibility out on the open water.

Dimmer: You set the remote's LCD display illumination to dim in conjunction with the light switch of your vessel or set it to be dimmed constantly.

Controls: The KCA-RC107MR wired remote allows you to access all major functions of your compatible Kenwood marine receiver, as well as control peripherals like iPod or satellite radio.

Connections: The Kenwood KCA-RC107MR features an attached 39" cable terminated by a proprietary 8-pin connector which plugs into the rear-panel of your KMR-700's or KMR-440U's proprietary wired-remote port.

Installation: The Kenwood wired remote control unit comes with a plastic mount bracket and hardware which allows it to be mounted flush in your vessel for a neat and clean looking installation.

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.

Watertight!

Written By Tucknott, Chandler, AZ on Wednesday, April 06, 2011
 
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.

Pros:
-recessed install option
-watertight/proof
-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

Cons:
-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
