Manage your musical experience on the water with this gauge hole sized bluetooth digital media receiver.

You'll love everything about this receiver from its simple-to-install mechless design and zero current draw construction to its intuitive bluetooth interfacing and built-in safety-minded weather band tuner. This durable device features a 3" ten-character black and white screen that's visible even in bright sunlight and straightforward buttons with blue LED backlighting. With a bluetooth connection you can create player control profiles and trust the zero current draw memory backup to store them.

Key Features

  • Capabilities: Connect to your devices through the AUX and USB inputs at the back of this device or wirelessly using bluetooth. This unit has a built-in weather tuner and works with local AM and FM radio. It charges your device and allows for speaker connections up to 60W/channel and four channels.
  • Personalize Your Sound: This device comes with five preset EQ settings to fine-tune your listening experience. Choose from Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical or Beat. Create unique listener profiles so you don't have to adjust the settings every time you set sail.
  • Installation: Installation is a breeze with this receiver. Its 3" gauge hole and mechless design mean you may not even have to drill new holes in your boat. Because you can control it from anywhere on your vessel, you can also install it anywhere it fits. West Marine strongly recommends against installing this device where it will be submerged, however, so avoid installation on the hull.
  • Zero Current Draw: The zero current draw memory back-up saves the boat's battery when idle. It saves your preset radio stations even when the boat's batteries are completely powered down. 
  • Built for Boating: For boating safety, the AM/FM receiver receives NOAA Weatherbands and the unit is IP66 waterproof to withstand heavy splashing, spray and rain.
