Also made by Clarion, and JVC. all about $160.00

Stll looking for a marine one.
We did a BananaShark 770 with a remote USB socket in the glove box and a regular head unit - plug your memory stick in and instant tunes - even came up with the track name - add a wired waterproof remote and you're done!

I must admit that I think the easiest and neatest installation is the Ipod in a waterproof box, amp and speakers from Marine AV - this is the amp we use: http://www.marine-audio.com/Products...and-Alone-.htm

Please use correct marine terminology.

We built it and that's what we call it - what would you call our "glove box" then?

I agree that the iPod+ amp+ remote is a neat installation and has the advantage that you can use the Ipod for other purposes and it is more powerful. Question: is the amp. USB connection powered so it charges the iPod? However, you are only using the iPod as a memory stick ( kinda expensive in comparison) and you do not get am/fm/cd etc. it is an expensive solution compared to a full featured head with USB and ipod inputs. Still cannot make my mind up which way to go though.

It's still working fine! You just download tunes from windows media player onto a USB stick and choose what you want on the regular display.

That unit looks realy good for the price, makes me regret the 100 I spent on a Sony marine CD player.
Ebay does have some good speakers on sale at the mo, just got the ones I bought last week, two pairs of Sony marine 140w 6.5inch speakers for 76 delivered.
Big enough to blast around the harbour and annoy everyone if I ever have the urge to be a hooligan :-)
