I purchased a CMV1 for a marine application aboard a 38 Deadrise workboat; I read the pros and cons before the purchase and elected to buy based on everything Clarion claimed the unit would do and the back-up information from the Sonic Electronix Customer Service Team. Everything was self installed along with a 4 Ch AMP driving two front speakers and a subwoofer all Klipsch outdoor units. The AM/FM receptions is good from an amplified car antenna, iPOD, iPhone, HTML interface is great [charges, displays, programs, etc], CDs & DVDs are just like using a component entertainment system, have not used the HD or satellite radio capability. We use the CMV1 as the DVD video source to view a Samsung 27 TV powered by a 300 amp inverter off my 12v house battery bank. The unit was pricey, but performs very well; I could not find a similar single unit component to do everything the CMV1 does. Cons: the installation diagram is vague and Clarion offers little assistance. When the battery bank is down to 12V the unit will not turn on; the face back light blinks 3 second cycles and there is no explanation as to what it was going on. After some trial and error I came up with the low voltage issue. I suggest Clarion include this in their Installation/User Manual.
We bought both the CMV1+Amp through Sonic Electronix: great customer service, answered all my queries and UPS shipping was uneventful.

June 11, 2013 Awesome Head Unit

I installed this in my Cabin of my boat. Added a wired remote at the helm as well. The unit is awesome. I have had many head units in my life in this one is by far the best one. Very easy to use and very durable. The display is beautiful. This thing will hook up to just about anything. I hooked my iPhone 4s and was able to play Pandora or my iTunes library. Okay here is the part that I have never experienced in a head unit. I can be playing iTunes or Pandora turn the boat off to go grab a lunch turn the boat on and the head unit starts up, wakes up my iPhone and starts playing right were I left off.
