Take Control

Have a Kenwood marine receiver? Now you can keep control of it even if it's mounted below deck. The KCA-RC55MR wired remote features a 2-line LCD screen that lets you keep tabs on what you're listening to and with an anti-glare screen its operation isn't affected by bright sunlight. You can access major functions of your Kenwood marine headunit like power on/off, volume, and track up/down and input/source. Gone are the days of needing to be in the receiver's line of sight.

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...

I have it installed at the helm under an enclosed hardtop ... The plastic material is crumbling and the unit is falling apart. This is the second season on the boat. The entire boat was shrink wrapped over the winter. An E-Mail to Kenwood had no response.

Best Answer: Hello,

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

Will it work with a Kenwood KMR-D362BT? If not how about a KMR-D562BT? Thanks!
William T on Apr 2, 2015
Best Answer: Hell William,

The RC55MR will not work with either of those headunit. It will only work with those listed in the description.
