cBus to CeNet translator box

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unit works great. Allows you to use an older cBus component in this case a marine cd changer and connect it to a new CeNet head unit. It will work even when used connected to a Sirius Tuner then to the head unit. It will not however display song titles or disk info besides track number, disk number and time.
