      say goodbye to your wired remote on you boats dash


      from 11356

      Comments about Sony Marine Bluetooth CD Receiver:

      I think its bad advertising that sony says the RMX60M/L is compatible with this unit. I guess its all about the sales.. the RMX60M/L will work but the remote screen will not function because sony changed the plug on the head unit. and only the buttons will work.. what a joke.


      Good performance, some complaints


      from Spokane, WA, USA

      Comments about Sony Marine Bluetooth CD Receiver:

      I had this installed last year, when I bought my boat. My only problems with this so far: 1. The remote SUCKS! my stereo is mounted in the glove compartment, and you have to prop the door to the glove compartment open AND have the remote within just 2 or 3 feet of the unit to use it. Kinda defeats the purpose of having the remote. 2. The app for iphone, is pointless. I know sony makes phones that are the competition to apple, but really?? It seems childish and poor marketing to make any useful app only have decent features for android. Whoever made that decision obviously thought that by doing that, it would make people go out and grab an android phone, but, in at least my way of thinking, it does the opposite, it makes my next purchase of a stereo, or any sony product, WAY less likely. I do like the sound quality, menu setup, and options


      Broke in a few weeks and interface stinks


      from Stanhope, NJ 07874, USA

      Comments about Sony Marine Bluetooth CD Receiver:

      I installed this unit in my boat and it broke after a few weeks. The FM would only tune in the Japanese freq which ends at 88mhz making it pretty useless in the US. The interface is hard to use and hard to pair with a Bluetooth. Since it is on a boat and a lot of boat owners turn off their batteries when the boat is not in use so it loses its memory so every time you need to repair the blue tooth, EQ, and presets which is a pain due to the poor interface. To avoid this limitation you could run a direct line to the battery or build a small trickle to keep the memory alive or the device could have been designed with true memory like many others have done. After I sent the unit back to sony I received a call a few "weeks" later saying it is a known issue with the unit and they can not provide a replacement unit and to send a copy of how much I paid so I could be refunded. Sony has really gone in the wrong direction in the past few years and this product really highlights that.

      from Georgia

      Comments about Sony Marine Bluetooth CD Receiver:

      I would give this zero stars if I could. Bought this, had it professionally installed and connected my Bluetooth iPod to it and kept getting a beeping noise through the speakers along with the music. Called Sony support and basically a button is stuck somewhere and they want me to have it uninstalled and send it back all at cost to me! This was a brand new unit!!! Now I have to pay to have it uninstalled, send it back, wait for replacement, then pay to have new one reinstalled all at cost to me. Don't buy Sony people, read on other blogs where this radio has a programming glitch, look at YouTube if you need more info!
