Contrary to Martini's views, I'm quite pleased with my Fusion radio ipod thingy. I fitted Fusion 6" speakers into the console and with it cranked up, it's loud enough. Admittedly there's wind and engine noise so it's not the same as a stereo in your car, but it whiles away the monotony of a boring crossing. My only regret is that I mounted the speakers a bit low on the console which means volume is fine for passengers but not so good for helm and navigator seats. The Fusion is simple to operate but sophisticated as well. If the remote panel wasn't so expensive, I'd have mounted the main unit int eh console out of the way and just put the remote panel on the dashboard. Neater installation, and being round it woudl compliment the dials nicely.

Fine unless you have passengers that want to talk to you. Actually come to think of it, maybe that's not such a bad idea after all. Won't be able to hear the cries of 'slow down'
