Wired marine remote control

Our take on the Sony RM-X60M/L by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Sony's RM-X60M/L wired marine remote control lets you manage the tunes on your boat from a convenient spot — without exposing your Sony stereo to the elements. When connected to a compatible Sony marine stereo, this splash-proof remote can handle track selection, fast-forward, rewind, volume, and source selection. If you've added a Sony HD Radio™ module, iPod® adapter, or satellite radio tuner to your stereo, you can use this remote to navigate quickly through long lists of stations or music files.
This 4" round remote comes with an 16.5-foot cable, so you can mount it in a variety of locations. Store your stereo safely inside the cabin and let this IPx7-compliant remote deal with the sun, salt, and spray. Warranty: 60 days.
Bought this for my 330 Sea Ray Sundancer and mounted it to the rear swim platform. Makes it so much easier to adjust the receiver from the swim platform without tracking up the carpet in the boat full of water.

Sony RM-X60M/L Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Compatibility: The RM-X60M is designed to work with Sony's UniLink control marine receivers that are compatible with Sony's wired remote. The included UniLink "Y" adapter allows you to connect this unit and another UniLink source (CD changer, Satellite or HD Radio, and iPod) to a compatible head unit.
Display: The display shows source and mode information, satellite radio information, and RDS and CD text information (if supplied by the head unit).
Water Resistant: The remote is water resistant, so it is ideal for use on boats, where a head unit needs to be kept dry, but you need to control it from a damp remote location.
Mounting: The RM-X60M requires a 3.25" diameter round cutout. It's held in place using the included mounting bracket. The mounting depth is 1.4375".
- Volume +/-: used for volume control
- Source: selects source (Tuner, CD, CD-changer, Satellite, HD-Radio, iPod, etc)

Yes it should work. And it's simple to install to work with your radio just plug and play. I love mine. Hope this helps [ erich Jul 28, 2015 ]
This remote should work with the CDX-M630 receiver. That receiver does have a wired remote input. [ Jeff Jul 30, 2015 ] Staff
I'm sorry, I do not know. Sony may be able to answer that if you can reach someone. It works great with my sony cdx-60m. [ AARON R Jul 26, 2015 ]
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your Sony. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Greg Jul 25, 2015 ] Staff
I have the Sony CDX-M60UI and it works great. [ ROBERT May 30, 2015 ]
It does not look like the MEX-N5100BT is compatible with a wired remote. [ Jeff May 11, 2015 ] Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: I do not show the Sony RM-X60M/L Wired Marine Remote to be compatible with the DSX-A55BT. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Dec 06, 2014 ] Staff
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy Jun 25, 2014 ] Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This remote is not compatible with the CDX-GT700HD, as it does not have the connections necessary. It appears that remote is a dedicated "marine" remote. The only remote I find compatible is the remote that came in the box with the 700HD, which is a wireless IR remote. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Jun 18, 2014 ] Staff
