We have a older Clarion with wired remote, works great. Getting ready to upgrade to the newer style remote and new head unit next week. I beleive the model #M309 on the head unit and the remote has an LED display for the dash. The remote is the only thing I use to control the radio. Everything else is JL audio, amps and speakers. Sounds great.

What about the MB Quart WM1-DVD or WM1-CD?

Has 3 RCA pre-outs, sub output control, full iPod control, splash proof to IPX5 standards and can add wired or wireless remotes.

I really dont need all the options on the Cmv-1, is the sound quality of the lower level units still good?
If you don't want the DVD and color display go with the cmd6. Same features less DVD. Also less money. You can also add a blue tooth interface for cell phone. There is a company Interactive marine that makes wireless waterproof remotes that float. Works great when in the water. Sound quality is awesome.

do you remember the hole diameter needed? I am making new cockpit side panels & would like to get the hole precut. i cant find this info online anywhere.

Fusion makes a fairly inexpensive unit, but has excellent sound and features. It has a built in ipod dock and full control of the ipod. It doesn't have a CD slot as the ipod is docked behind the drop down face plate. Also allows for many wired remote units. I am now on my second season on the Fusion unit. It has multiple "zones" as well. I absolutly love it.
