Do you have your own personalized playlist? MP3 players have become very popular these days, and many boaters like to listen to their tunes while on the water. If you are one of those who covet your iPod and cringe at the thought of your playlists getting wet, a waterproof (IPx5 rating) iPod dock from Fusion Electronics may be what you are looking for. Two very popular Fusion stereos are the MS-IP600 Marine Stereo for iPod, and the combination of the MS-AV600 Marine DVD Stereo and the MS-IPDOCKG2 Marine Dock for iPod. The MS-AV600, in addition to playing audio CDs, can play DVD movies when connected to a TV or Monitor. Tired of those flashy, multi-button stereos that are so hard to use? You won't find things like seven band graphic equalizers, high pass crossovers, or other over-the-top options; fusion stereos feature a simplified user interface. The buttons are large and easily identifiable. They make it easy. Just flip down the front cover and slide in your iPod. It even works with the iPod Nano and classic iPod. Once you close the cover, your music player is shielded from the elements.
Another great option for the Fusion Stereo is the wired remote. This small unit is dash mounted in a convenient location and allows full access to your Fusion stereo. So if your Stereo is in the cabin, you can have your wired remote up on Deck or beside the helm. The Fusion also comes with an IR remote and is Sirius Satellite Radio ready.
