Anyone use it or try it out in their boats? Got it in my Chevy van, and it's kind of nice, wondering if it'll work in a boat.

Well thank you sir. I think I'll try it. I do like some of its features. Your pops and me must be about the same age, haha

That unit sounds nice, killer. I do most of my boating on a lake that's 1800 feet above sea level. The houseboat owners at the marina have the same system. But the reception gets sketchy when they're on the water. I'm hoping it'll sound okay when I'm hold up in a cove someplace with my honey. I'll just have to buy it and find out. Thank you very much 4 your replies.

I had  SiriusXM Edge unit in my last truck, and had their. Marine kit in the pontoon. I took my Egde unit out, and plugged in into the water proof housing in the boat, and never lost music, no matter where we were. That was the best part is not losing reception. The kit has everything to install, housing, remote, wiring, SAT/GPS antenna for around $50

Hey Nordic, sounds like the same unit. I'm just curious where you mounted the antenna? It's truly an amazing unit. I love the variety of music that's available. Here's a pic of our toon. It's been in the family since dirt. I know you enjoy yours as much as we do ours. Thank you very much.

Our toon HS the aluminum hardtop to begin with before I built the custom top it now has. I had it mounted on top of the hardtop. Once I built the new canvas/hardtop o mounted it to the top of the drivers console, and it worked great, without interception from the canvas top. As I suspect you would be just fine with the Bimini tops. We enjoyed the crap out of it, especially since I did a full complete restoration/customization on it

you can upgrade your existing Sirius account to add the "Mobile" version to your phone. Your phone then becomes the receiver and you pick stations just like you do in the car using the Sirius mobile app on your phone.

Then you hook your phone up to your boat radio or your boom box and there ya go!

Now that is awesome.

I have found that phone reception is spotty at best on Havasu using a phone for music is a frustrating deal. I use the Sirius radio with great results.

I used the phone app in the Nordic, with 50/50 results. It works great if you have phone service. But since it tells on the service you have on your phone, it doesn't always work well in the middle of the desert where we boat!! Lol

I have a bunch of music loaded on my phone and just use the blue tooth head unit to play.  Never have to worry about reception...

I have a simple Bluetooth head unit with regular 6x9 and 5 1/4 speakers. No amps or base sounds pretty good. not loud enough to hear over motor when driving tho.  No Perko switch running radio on a deep cycle 24 battery, can play all weekend without having to charge it.

In the Nordic I had 6 6x9's, powered by the JVC head unit, with 1200w 12" and matching amp.(2-batts) In the pontoon I had 6-6.5's, 2-6x9's also on a Kenwood head unit, with 850w 10"/amp.(2-batts) The new Cheetah deckboat has a Kenwood heady it, 8- Infinity 6.5's running on 850w amp, and a 1500w 12", running on amp.(3-batts) this one definitely rocks the beach/cove
