NMEA 2000 remote adapter for Clarion marine receivers
Our take on the Clarion MW6by Crutchfield's Jon Paulette
Change the tune without changing your seat
This marine-rated MW6 adapter lets you control a Clarion marine receiver through the multi-function display (MFD) device on your boat's NMEA 2000 network. It can be integrated smoothly into your network (no programming is necessary) and it makes life on the water a lot more convenient.
The MW6 lets you use your MFD to control receiver functions like source switching, volume, play/pause, and next/previous track. You'll also be able to see artist/album/track info and the current radio frequency on the display.

There is an attached 6" cable terminated by a male 8-pin connector which plugs into a compatible Clarion marine source unit. There is also a 3' cable terminated by a male 5-pin connector that plugs into the boat's NMEA 2000 network.
Control Functions: Once installed between the boat's MFD and supported Clarion marine source units, boaters will be able to control various audio system functions - including power on/off, source selection, play/pause, next/previous track, seek up/down and more, directly from the UI of their MFD.
Display Info: The boat's Multi-Function Display (MFD) device will also display the Clarion marine source unit's song/artist/album info, track number, current radio station (frequency), and more.
