Bluetooth and more for your boat
Bluetooth and more for your boat
Using a Bluetooth device to stream music on a boat doesn't mean going without the features you're used to in your car or truck. Fusion's MS-BT100 Bluetooth audio module lets you enjoy your favorite music, plus you'll get to see track name, artist and song info displayed on the screen of your Fusion marine receiver.
The MS-BT200 connects to the satellite radio connector of select Fusion marine receivers. The Data Display function lets you play, pause and skip tracks directly from your Fusion stereo, and the graphics will let you see what you're hearing.
With a range of approximately 33 feet, you can enjoy seamless streaming from almost anywhere on your boat, while Direct Media Device Control lets you choose songs, albums, artists or playlists from your portable device.
Built to last, inside and out
This marine-rated module is certified IP65 water resistant, so it's totally prepared for wind, water, and waves. Voltage spikes happen on a boat from time to time, but this module features special protection circuitry which ensures that you'll enjoy your music no matter what.
Works with select Fusion stereos
The MS-BT200 module streams audio from any A2DP Bluetooth-capable Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry or other device when connected to Fusion's MS-IP700, MS-IP700i, MS-AV700, MS-AV700i and MS-RA205 marine receivers. This module uses the satellite connection on your Fusion marine receiver, so you can't connect your satellite radio tuner too. You can opt for the MS-BT100 module to enjoy Bluetooth audio streaming.
Important Note: A software upgrade is required to access the functionality of the MS-BT200. Data display will vary depending on your media device. Your streaming range will vary according to obstructions on your boat.
