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.

      Comments about Clarion Marine Audio CMD8 Watertight Marine Stereo:

      I install this unit in 2010 and it has worked flawlessly since, salt spray, washdown after use, nothing has effected it. I figured to get a couple of years out of it since it is out in the elements, to say I am pleasantly surprised is an understatement. If this unit goes down no question what I will be ordering to replace it.

          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.
