Dimensions: 1-11/16"W x 4-7/8"L x 15/16"D.

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.

In-Dash Receiver
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.

Alpine
Wireless
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.

Yes
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.
No
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.

great little remote!

May 27, 2014

I love this remote! Since it uses 2 AA batteries, it fits great in your hand. There's something to hold on to, making thumb navigation a breeze. Unlike the Pioneer remotes. I never felt like I'd drop it while driving. A great feature while driving. Most stereo functions are accessible, so I haven't felt like it's too basic.

Range and operations are limited, but it's better than no remote.

Great Remote

August 8, 2011

Great little remote for the money! I enjoy not having to rub the paint off the buttons on my HU. Very durable, Ive dropped it out of my lifted truck countless time and it hasn't quit working yet so it gets 5 stars in the category. I only have 2 cons. First one is SQ settings (besides Volume) I would have liked to be able to control my subwoofer level and tweak other SQ settings from it. Second is the distance in which the remote works, maybe only about 12 feet or so. But it is definitely worth the money, especially at SonicElectronix.com
