Product Description

An onboard hub for your digital devices, and made for the marine environment, the CMD8 Watertight Marine Stereo boasts a watertight face with a humi-seal coated PCB and a drip shield, and meets or exceeds ASTM standards for salt/fog and UV exposure. The CMD8 is SiriusXM and Pandora-compatible and made for your iPod or iPhone with iTunes tagging. Just use the USB cable that came with your iPod/iPod touch and connect to the head unit’s rear USB input to get complete control including genre/album/song title search. Enjoy intuitive operation with use of the iPod/iPod touch control wheel. Pandora internet radio plays songs while you feedback a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” which is reflected in future selections. Album artwork and song information, as well as the ability to bookmark artists/songs and create your own station, are supported by the Pandora app on your smartphone. Built-in CD player supports home-burned CD-ROMs with MP3 and WMA files stored on them, as well as common store-bought music CDs. Includes high pass/low pass filter and three-band P-EQ, Beat EQ and Magna Bass EX, giving you freedom to customize the level and range of the bass, midrange and treble portions of each pattern. Low power consumption mode when powered down and long memory retention for your station presets. Rear USB port with watertight cap.

      Comments about Clarion Marine Audio CMD8 Watertight Marine Stereo:

      I have had multiple problems with this radio on my boat. The rear unit had to be replaced due to moisture and now the main unit has to be replaced after just 2 years. That's poor quality.
      I would not recommend this unit.
