The M505 is an audio system designed specifically for a boat environment, but also looks wonderfully attractive. The 13-digits 2-line display on the M505 allows numbers and characters to be displayed clearly – in all lighting conditions. And connectors have a protective cover to inhibit corrosion and damage. The built-in multi-band tuner supports reception of radio stations just about anywhere in the world -which is nice when you're sailing around the globe or just across the gulf. And with Weather Band you'll always have the latest weather updates, including automatic reception of emergency weather information. Enjoy Bluetooth audio streaming with improved quality thanks to aptX codec support. This technology improves audio quality when listening to compressed audio over Bluetooth in a way that doesn't degrade audio quality or cause latency, and reproduces the full audio bandwidth for quality sound on the waves. Enjoy the familiar control of your iPhone, with ALBUM / ARTIST / SONG LIST on screen display and List back operation. Simple control mode lets you easily operate the system using just the iPhone controls, including ABC search to quickly access tunes. Pandora internet radio is at home in your boat. The source unit's Pandora feature works together with the Pandora app on your smart device. Connect, control and enjoy SiriusXM Satellite Radio on your boat with an optional tuner. The M505 includes Front AUX Input for convenient connection, Dual Zone Audio with fixed output, 3-Band EQ for customizable sound, Low Pass Filer for Subwoofer and 6-Channel 4-Volt RCA outputs to make it easy to expand and upgrade your Audio System.
