Remote Control Features

Remote Type
The type of remote is determined by the remotes use.

Car Alarm remotes are used with security systems. These are mainly replacement remotes for the vehicles security system.

In-Dash Receiver remotes are used for controlling a compatible in-dash head unit.

Marine remotes are used for use on boats. They are marine certified and treated to withstand harsh marine conditions.

Television remotes are usually universal remotes that are compatible with all types of televisions. Some are also compatible with VCRs and DVD players.

Compatible Brands
This is the manufacturer(s) that the item is compatible with. Unless it is universal, usually the item will only be compatible with the same manufacturer.

For example, a JVC Bluetooth adapter will only work with JVC units. A Pioneer iPod adapter will only work with Pioneer head units.

This means that the item is wireless. It transmits its signal to the receiver without the use of wires.

If the value is no, then the item requires a wire to transfer the signal.

Remote LCD Display
Some devices (such as remote controls) feature an LCD display to show information such as text, pictures, icons, or other helpful information.
Marine Certified
Marine certified means that the unit has been designed and manufactured with a marine use in mind. It will withstand the harsh conditions that come from marine use. Generally, they are treated against UV rays and treated with special protective coatings.

Secret Compartment

May 4, 2014

I have not yet had this unit installed, but, I would not have bought it if I thought i wouldn't like it. The best (IMHO) reason i bought this unit was for the iPod/iPhone secret compartment, accessible by a push button on front of unit. It also comes with a pouch to protect your device while in motion, although this is a marine grade stereo, I bought it for my suburban as my dogs love to slobber on my cars interior, its a little more protected for the environment than your standard head units…i.e., spills, weather, elements...

Is it waterproof to mount on the rear of the boat to control while in the water outside the boat?
todd s on Feb 7, 2015
Best Answer: Yes it is waterproof but I wouldn't expose it to a lot of water .

Best Answer: Hello,

Unfortunately, Kenwood has not confirmed compatibility; So we are to assume it is NOT.
