Our take on the Fusion MS-CBUSBFM1

A tough USB cable for outdoor use

Fusion designed this 40" panel-mount USB connector cable for use on your boat, ATV, side-by-side, motorcycle, or personal watercraft. It features a waterproof cap on one end that can be closed to protect the USB port from dust and moisture when not in use.

Product Highlights:

What's in the Box:

  • 40" USB extension cable (terminated by a male USB type-A connector on one end and a female USB type-A connector on other end)

Would of liked to have longer cable, otherwise OK!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good length but not happy with the plastic threaded make and female, male not long enough for my application and the female nut would jump threads when tightened by hand. Would not recommend.



Convenient USB hook up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great add on! This keeps my head unit's USB protected from being vulnerable to the extreme salt water environment and gives a me a great option for convenient placement to best suite where I want to keep/charge my USB device. Very happy with it

Pros: Very easy to install, gives me a mounting placement option that suits where I want to hook up/keep my USB device, protects USB opening in actual head unit from the elements

Cons: None

Remote access

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had been needing to add a USB charger to the boat - as all things seem to require now a days. With the purchase of my Fusion Marine Entertainment radio, which Crutchfield price competitively, they included this USB - Thank you Crutchfield. I've now been a satisfied customer since 1996.



now have in dash USB direct to HU

Buddhahead Steve from Washington on 12/23/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Popped out the extra cigarette lighter, with a few washers it fit perfectly

Pros: simple install from HU to dash

Cons: wish it had a locking USB at the HU, hope it doesn't come loose


Hands-on research

USB Extension Cable: The Fusion MS-CBUSBFM1 USB extension cable is fitted with a male USB-A connector on one end which plugs into the rear-panel USB port of your in-dash or bulkhead receiver. On the other end is a female USB-A connector and integrated flush-mount bracket which allows for discrete installation and connection of your portable USB audio device, like your Apple iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone/tablet.

Integrated Flush-Mount Bracket: The Fusion MS-CBUSBFM1 USB extension cable's integrated flush-mount bracket requires a 0.75" cut-out. A threaded nut tightens and secures the USB extension cable into place in the dash or bulkhead. A rubber gasket provides an airtight, watertight fit.

Protective Cap: There is a screw-on protective cap to keep dust and moisture out of the the USB-A connector port when not in use.

Cable Length: The cable is 40" total in length.
