Careful...I polished my hull yesterday. I'm getting strange urges.

Yes, they got everything you might need and very cheap. Delivery was quick and fairly priced so no problems at all.

That model is discontinued but after a fair amount of online searching for a bespoke unit that can be mounted inside a console it looks like the Poly planar or similiar with a seperate MP3 player feeding it may be the only way to go.
There are MP3/tuner players with 4GB for around 30 or a bit more. Has anybody tried the tuner on these inside a console?

i thought they were probably discontinued , but for a 20gb mp3 with a tuner and facility to record from the tuner to mp3 they were so much better than an ipod at the time and for a lot less money, ipods for 40 at the time just didnt exist and ipods for 80 just annoyed you by not displaying the track playing and then shuffling to some hip hop crap that your mrs had downloaded just to piss you off,
my wife has even put britney spears toxic on mine several times when she has been feeling particularly spiteful

How about one of these?

It says you can fit an external remote to it so you could mount the head unit out the way and the remote on the console.

And it has a radio!!

I have one of these supplied and fitted by rib-shop and it is awesome. The speakers are those supplied with the unit and it sounds great even at 40kts with an opti 225 on the back at WOT. One of the best things I have bought in a long time.

Was going to fit it myself but the price they offered was very good including installation.
