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.
