Now that I'm installing Accuski, I'm able to free up a small guage hole, (depth guage). I'm looking for a Sony compatible remote, but haven't had much luck. I've found the New Sony marine commander, (it's way too big). I've also found Access Technologies, again, not designed for the standard opening. Does anyone have any more ideas?

I'm in the same boat(so-to-speak). But with my deck in the arm rest I WANT A REMOTE WITH A DISPLAY, and the sony seems to best (though large) choice. Clarion now makes one (I saw it in the new Overton's catalog) It's only 2-3/8" BUT it only works with the big (double DIN) decks.
Anyone else have any ideas?

Patrick I would check with Clarion I bet that remote works with the M335-RET deck.

Good luck

I have the Sony and have my deck in the glove box. The nice thing about the sony is it will display the mode your in, the volume, the cd, and the radio station. I placed it on the dash. If you already have a Sony deck it's the best way to go.

Where is the best place to order the Access Technologies sony wired remote? How much should I expect to pay?
By Ryan (ocrider) on Monday, January 27, 2003 - 7:34 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post

You can pick up the Access Technologies one for $49.95. At least that's how much it was the last time I installed one.

Try calling them directly to get the local distributor for your area. They don't sell direct to the public, but they will tell you who to call.

Good luck!

I don't think so, the Sony with LCD will set you back a bill and a half. Nice though

The last time I spoke with Access Tech, they said the one with the LCD was a prototype that wouldn't be ready anytime soon. I would expect it to be much more expensive if they ever did decide to make it.

Overton's has the Access Technologies remote on sale for $39. I also talked with them and they said the new one with the LCD readout will be available "sometime this year", that's a nice 12 month window.

Anyway, still looking for a sony compatible remote that will fit the std 2-1/2" guage hole

Anyone know if there is a wired remote that will work on my JVC head unit?

I don't have the model nummber with me, but it came in my 2001 LSV.

JVC does offer a remote. Overtons carries it.

I searched Overtons for JVC and\or remotes......I found Sony, Clarion, Jenson, and Kenwood but no JVC.

Prospec modified the JVC headunits found in last years boats to work with a wired remote. Someone over on MBO contacted them and found that they no longer perform that modification, and will not do single units.

They also manufacture the JBL headunit for HK, which explains why the remotes are almost identical to the older JVC models.

You'll have to upgrade to a new headunit if you want a wired remote, which isn't all bad, as you'll have the chance to move up to a remote that includes a display.

Well, that sucks.

I don't really want to buy a new head unit and it bugs the crap out of me to have to lift the armrest up everytime to adjust the volume.

I'm going to look into getting the head unit modified with an external remote reader that I can mount somewhere next to the remote that came with the head unit. That might look a little hick, but will still be easier than the other option.

You could also try an IR repeater. I know others have brought up and it looks like a good option, below is the site I last heard about. It looks like they have a new product for marine use that allows the use of access technologies sony remote on other brand head units. (as mentioned before the remote is on sale at Overton's.

How about something like the Sony RM-X4S? What I would want to have is the controls on the steeing wheel like some cars do.
