After a few marine ones over the years I decided to try some automotive ones and put some clear tape on it. The first one lasted about 20 minutes because there was a leak in the console right above it so when I washed the fiber glass cuttings off it died right away. The replacement is going on year 4.
It's this cheap Boss brand's predecessor. Features are Bluetooth(reads TXTs, great speakerphone even when slow cruising), DVD player, USB port for phone charging or playing music from phone or movies on USB or phone, SD memory card for audio or movies(I keep all my songs on SD and just update when I want to), audio/video OUT if you want to go to a larger screen or projector, wireless remote(seal in vacuum bagger).
I think I paid $139 for it and it has external heat sinks which is a must for one you'll seal up.
I think I'm going to trade it out for a 2 Din so I can have a 7" screen. The little screen his kind of hard to touch right at speed.

Tater, I love ya bro, but please dont influence folks to put this on thier boats!
Get you a Clarion C-series. Or a Fusion. (If you must have am/fm or sat.) Or an amp with an rca to headphone jack adapter cord, and plug in your phone, I-pod or mp3. Who the hell listens to anything other than internet (Pandora) or stored data these days anyway?

lakeside if I can find the link I put a third party bluetooth connection made by blackberry in a few boats all it needed was 12v and a aux input on the radio and it worked great. We kept it in the console and it has seemed to last about 2 years so far.
