I've got the music on a memory stick and only use the dock if I need to charge the iPhone ( or watch videos ;-))

900 down the drain.

+1 that's probably where it all went wrong

I once bought a car with a "professionally" installed ICE system, I had to rip the whole lot out and do it again properly to get rid of the interference and other weird goings on

Totally agree. May just be a problem with my installation. I would just like anybody who may be thinking to install one to check that it meets what they want. At this point I don't know if my issue is with the installation or the unit. Don't you love boating, nothing is simple.

Mine shares the VHF aerial and worked fine. Had a small link box in the console, first time I'd seen one to be honest.
