RF marine remote control system
Our take on the Alpine RUE-M1RF by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
The bright sun out on the water does more than give you a great tan — it also makes conventional IR remotes impractical, since the light interferes with the IR remote eye. Alpine solves that problem with the RUE-M1RF RF remote system. Plug the included RF receiver module into the steering wheel controls jack of your compatible Alpine receiver, then use the RF remote to control the receiver from up to 100 feet away.
Don't worry about losing your remote when you hit choppy seas. The remote comes with a mounting cup, and you can string it onto a lanyard using the built-in tabs. Best of all, it floats if you do accidentally drop it in the drink. If you're unlucky, or want spares on hand, extra remotes are available.
easy to install. good range over all works good only negative is the power on with remote dont respond

Alpine RUE-M1RF Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Alpine RUE-M1RF Marine RF Remote Control Kit is compatible with Alpine headunits that offer the steering wheel remote-control input. The RUE-M1RF kits comes supplied with one RF marine remote control and an RF receiver that plugs into the steering wheel remote control jack of your compatible Alpine headunit. In addition to the supplied RF remote control, additional single remotes may be purchased separately, if needed (item# RUE-M1EX). You can program as many as eight remotes to work with the same Alpine headunit. The Alpine marine remote uses RF (radio frequency) technology so you can control your system with the remote from up to 100 feet away. The RUE-M1RF Kit's remote also has the ability to float and is water resistant. The RUE-M1RF Remote Kit comes with a mounting bracket that the remote can clip into to prevent it from getting tossed overboard in rough waters. You can also string the remote through an optional lanyard and hang it up to prevent loss.

Why did you buy this?
I am a Master Car Audio Tech for 41 years and do a lot of custom cars and boats. This product is great for hide away the Alpine head unit and to be able to control the Alpine decks and feature with this remote system. Working on a $70,000.00 1970 Chevelle right now as we speak and have custom hid the head unit away from sight to leave the factory radio in ash, untouched. [ dale Jun 10, 2017 ]
Wanted a waterproof remote for my Alpine marine receiver. [ Kevin Feb 01, 2017 ]
It's a great remote, especially to be used on a boat. You can be on the dock and be able to raise the volume, change the station, etc. It works great. Replacing ours because it went "missing" during a dock party a few weeks ago. Someone else is obviously enjoying it! We attached it to a float, so we know it didn't go overboard!!! Keep it close as everyone who sees it wants it! [ S Nov 16, 2016 ]
It is one of the very few remote controls for car audio that uses Radio Frequency. Ideal and perfect for in a RV to be able to control a car audio from anywhere in the vehicle. [ Mike Jun 06, 2016 ]
So I can run my Alpine head unit from my trolling motor seat! [ Dennis Feb 02, 2016 ]
