  • COOL USB indash...can this be modified?

    Here is my situation: I am building an indash MP3 player for my Yamaha Rhino ATV. I want to use this headunit (it is tested waterproof):
    http://cgi.ebay.com/CLARION-CMD4A-21...em140065251867

    BUT...this headunit does not offer USB interface. But I found this really cool USB interface for alpine...check out that indash USB insert!!
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Alpine-KCA-620M-...em330063111093

    Anyway, is there anything out there that can let me use a Marine unit with USB?? I like the Alpine USB interface...but alpine does not make marine players.....or wired remotes I cant find a single Marine unit that offers USB. There are a few units that offer MP3...but id really like either a USB or SD slot. I would love a wired remote thats waterproof with USB

    Anyone have any suggestions? IS there another way I am missing here?

    Thanks!!

      Good idea.

      Try looking at marine supply sites to see if you can find just the box to mount the HU in. Its been a while since I did it, but we installed a CAR HU in my father in laws boat and used a waterproof stereo box. HU goes in box, box goes in cutout and all is sealed up by a flip up latchable cover.

      or try something like this? http://www.crutchfield.com/S-7oQnQk1...p.asp?g=267250

        David -- great idea, but that is what everyone else does for their installs. I mean, its the best way to go, but like everyone else on here, I wanted to do something different, custom, and flush. Also, I would like to just see a wired remote rather than the HU for security reasons.

        Thanks for the suggestions!
