For less than $50, boat owners are able to replace old Clarion radio, retain old remote without rewiring.
Many boat owners are left scratching their heads upon discovering their new Clarion radio won't plug into the remote extension cable. With this scenario, the boat owner is left to either pay thousands of dollars to have boat re-wired or forfeit the install, but for less than $50, the CCUMAR1 adapter cable makes it possible to install new radio and retain user of wired remote
Why? All 2009 and up Clarion marine products were fitted with 8-pin cables and older radios/remotes were fitted with 6-pin cables and therefore most boats were also wired with 6-pin extension cables; however, in order to install a new radio will also require installing a new extension (cabin to helm) cable which is very costly if not impossible. Facing these odds the boat owner is left to either forfeit the radio upgrade or proceed with the upgrade and keep remote as an ornament; but thanks to the CCUMRA1 adapter cable, it is possible to use existing 6-pin cable to replace old 6-pin radio and retain old remote(s) with one small exception: the display on LCD remotes remain blank.
» Replace old radios to newer models (e.g. CMV1, CMD6, M505, M309, CMS1 etc.) and retain old remote (e.g. CMRC1, CMRC2, M101RC M102RC etc). -- See drop-down for listing.
» Works with existing 6-pin extension cable (M101RC) or 6-pin splitter cable (M101RYC)
» Mute button on non-LCD remotes (e.g. CMRC2 SB, CMRC2-BSS) may or may not function.
» The display on all LCD remotes (e.g. NW1, NW2, etc.) will be blank and not illuminate. (Don't ignore this warning)
» Old style Clarion wired remotes do not support IR remote signal pass-through.
