    The m309 or the older but new m475 both work with the older remotes and have iPod capabilities.

    With the RF remote you do not need line of sight. Check out the link and info

    I stream music over bluetooth on my RV stereo and on a home stereo. Sounds great. Much better than a RF modulator. Those things are terrible.

    How's the sound quality on streamed blue tooth? Anywhere near being plugged in or is it somewhat like an RF modulator?

    No kidding! Glad I just replaced both of my remotes!
    More information about the conversion cable in this thread: Clarion CCUMRA1 cables in short supply ...

    I ended up spending more money on the conversion cable, Y adapter cable, 25' extension cable and one wired remote than I did on my refurbed CMD6 last summer. I have 3 wired remotes in my boat and I only updated the one by the driver to the newer version. The CMD6 receiver comes with an IR remote. The receiver and new wired remotes have the IR receivers built in so if your glove box is closed you can still use the IR remote if you have line of sight to a wired remote. The USB ipod control is way better on the CMD6 than what I had with the Ipod module on my old CMD4a. I just bought the Clarion hands free kit of Ebay for $40 so my daughters can use the bluetooth A2DP connection on their Ipod Touches to stream music to the stereo.

    My head unit is not visible from anywhere in the boat other that right over the glove box. Does it need direct sight to work?

    They justed released to pre-order the RF wireless waterproof remote again. For some reason they did not ship last season but the guy from Crutchfield said they were just informated by Clarion this week that they are shipping this spring and to start taking orders. Now we don't have to swim back to the boat and change the volume or song

If I replace the head unit is it a common remote plug so that it will most likely work with the new unit? I'm not apposed to replacing the remote but re routing a remote cable seams like a nightmare as it surely goes under the floor. Best case I would like to plug the new unit into the pigtail that is "industry standard" if their is such a thing. Second would be a head unit and new remote pluged into the existing remote extension cord. Again if they are somewhat standard. The functions of a basic remote have not changed over the years. Volume, ship/search, pause, mode, etc so I'm hoping the pin configuration is maybe the same? Does anyone know if these remote extension cords are somewhat standard? Don't have my boat, still in the gel shop for first run of the season damage.
    The 2003 remote has a 6-pin plug. This is compatible with the Clarion CMD4, 4A, 5, and the M475 (single DIN size). The Clarion CMD6, 7, M309 all changed to an 8-pin plug. these are compatible with your remote, but would need an adapter cable to convert the 6-pin plug to an 8-pin plug.

    I've got an '01 Prostar and was wondering just how to get the from upholstery out. I can't get my arms behind there to take the nuts loose from the side cushions.
    PITA! Hopefully you have the worlds smallest hands. The remote is held in by a u bracket. I changed mine when I had the panel off. Be careful though! The bolts that hold the side panel on are just attached to the thin plastic and it will pull through and leave you with an issue.

    The remote will not work. You will have to buy a new remote/cable. I found mine online for like 75 bucks+ 20 sumin for the 25' cable. The remotes only come with a stub of a connector (6" or so")

    Price to pay for having the ipod hookup unfortunately. At that point you might as well buy 2, get the y adaptor and put in a transom remote too

    I have a 209 with an X9 tower.

    Yes-I had to contort my not so small body (6'1" 235) to make sure I was getting the routing properly. I don't recall them using any zip ties but at a couple points I remember a one loop rap around the small PVC tube. Yes, I did get some fiberglass rash but it wasn't bad and has healed nicely . In my opinion there is no need to remove the side cushions. Take your seat cushions out and also remove your speakers and you should be able to get enought access. By the way, this was the first and only time I have done this so it is do-able. The key is to use your old cable as your router.

I felt the same way about routing a new extension cord to but on my prostar the cable is routed through the glassed in PVC tubes along the gunwales from the drivers seat to the front of the bow and back to the glove box. What I did is disconnect the old remote and used the old extension cord as my fish tape by duct taping the old cord to the new one. Then remove all your bow cushions and bow speakers for access if need to help route. Then I had my wife pull gently on the stereo end on the cord as I followed on the under side of the boat. Just take your time and it should go smoothly. The new remotes are worth it if you are putting in a new deck. It has a digital display and a ton of functionality especially if you are working with an IPod. You can see the song and artist, move through playlists, and many more. Good luck
    Was the remote wire zip tied or was it fairly loose around the nose. I can see this as a fiberglass rash nightmare. I should have the boat back this weekend to see how it's routed.
