What type of plotter are you using Tim - there are "integrated" units out there...

no the plotter i have is to old and does not link into the radio , i know you can get the nmea 2000 that does the all the music thing on your chartplotter . but i can say that you said thats the best way , just to convince her we should get another chartplotter because if i say it she wont believe me

I had two aquatic AV units in 4 years, both ended up with cracking around the head unit fascia, have now gone over to Fusion. You can get a fusion bluetooth device as optional which would allow bluetooth of music from an Iphone. Go have a chat with a Fusion specialist.

Fusion do a little head unit, I think it's Bluetooth enabled but if not you can get a module for them for 40.

I've got the fusion 600 but have the Bluetooth adaptor fitted so you can use your iphone without docking it. Works great!

Fusion ms ra50 small head unit and you can fit a fusion ms bt 100 to it which is the Bluetooth interface device.

I'm looking at fitting this to my new boat, force 4 have pretty good priced units at present....

+ 1 for Fusion and blue tooth module as this is something I am also looking at Tim. I am looking at RA200 fusion series as it has 4 x channels (4 speaker outputs) rather than the RA50 which I think it only has 2 x channels.

Are you going to hear any tunes over 400Hp of erimtrudes at WOT?

Another Fusion fan here- RA-200 on mine.

4 speaker outputs - split into two zones , marine VHF receiver ( so you can actually hear stuff through decent speakers - but it wont transmit of course) , normal FM radio , ipod input via a normal ipod/USB lead and full ipod menu control on the head unit .

RA 50 came out shortly after I fitted the 200 - and probably would have been OK for me ....
