Marine, Display, & Installation Features

Marine Grade Protection with Life Shield: The MB Quart MDR2.0 digital media receiver meets or exceeds IPX5 requirements for water and dust protection, making it ideal for marine or off-road environments. Rest assured, when you see the MB Quart Life Shield icon, you are choosing a product that is engineered to the highest standards and built to last.

High-Contrast Display: The MB Quart MDR2.0 features a high contrast display that allows easy viewing and control. Regardless of full sun or shade, the display is clearly visible. The front-panel LCD will display source and menu selections, as well as song/artist/album information (no album art) from USB, iPod/iPhone, and Bluetooth devices.

Mounting Options: The compact chassis of the MDR2.0 offers greater installation flexibility and placement options because of its shallow depth, so it fits well in nearly any recreational vehicle's dashboard - motorcycle, UTV/ATV, or watercraft. The MB Quart MDR2.0 requires a rectangular cutout and mounts to the dash or bulkhead with four screws (not included) through the front-panel of the receiver.

  • Cutout Dimensions: 7.035" (w) x 2.015" (h) x 4.755" (d)
  • Front-Panel Dimensions: 7.595" (w) x 2.365" (h) x 0.8125"
  • Screw-Hole Spacing: 7.25" (w) x 1.25" (h) x 1.0"

Note: Even though the MB Quart MDR2.0 has a Single-DIN chassis, it is not designed to work in standard Single-DIN automotive openings because it lacks a mounting sleeve and removable trim-ring; plus mounts with four screws (not included) through the front-panel of the receiver.

Variety Of Sources

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The MB Quart MDR2.0 features built-in Bluetooth 4.0 with support for wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your Bluetooth device to the MDR2.0 receiver. You can operate basic playback functions, such as Play/Pause & Skip Next/Previous, from the unit's front-panel controls (advanced music control will still need be done from your Bluetooth-enabled source device). The unit will also display song/artist/album information (no album art) of your Bluetooth streaming music. The unit offers quick and easy wireless connection to your Bluetooth enabled device thanks to Simple Secure Pairing (SSP). When the unit powers up, it immediately connects to the last device connected. The unit has a Bluetooth wirelessly range of approximately 32'.

Notes: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

USB Port: The MB Quart MDR2.0 is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the chassis by a 6" pigtail (not extension cable included).

The unit also charges your connected USB device (up to 0.5A).

Note: The unit's USB port does not support Android devices, USB hubs, card-readers, and computers/laptops.

iPhone Direct Connect: The unit's rear-panel USB port can be used to connect your Lightning-connector or 30-pin dock connector iPod/iPhone with the cable that came with your Apple device. The MDR2.0 supports audio playback, basic control (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), song/artist/album display (no album art), and charging of your compatible Apple device. You will continue to use your iPod/iPhone for advanced music browsing.
