Marine Bluetooth Stereo Radio Recommendations
Pyle Marine Bluetooth Stereo Radio
We have heard a lot of positive things about the Pyle Marine Bluetooth Stereo Radio. The radio is fitted with a 12v single DIN style boat in dash radio receiver system with a built-in mic. The radio also features a 300 Watt (75W x 4) peak power output and EQ configuration, which allows you to easily control and manage the bass, treble, balance and fader for a high quality sound that few other marine Bluetooth stereo radios can match.
The Bluetooth connectivity was very good when we tested it. It is possible to stream audio directly from your hand-held A2DP Bluetooth enabled device, such as from your personal iPhone, Android, or iPad. You can even use the Bluetooth technology integrated into the technology to stream music from a music player such as Pandora through your speakers.
The radio also has a reliable built-in mic for answering calls and the radio is able to display the telephone number of the person you are calling on the compact LCD panel digital display. This is a great all round radio, and should be seriously considered.
Rockville RGHR2 Marine Gauge Hole Receiver w Bluetooth
The Rockville RGHR2 gauge-hole digital media receiver with Bluetooth/USB/AM/FM capabilities is another radio that comes highly recommended. It is able to fit easily into a standard tachometer opening, so installation is quick and easy with no complex instructions to follow. It really is plug and play. It has IP66 Waterproof Certification, so it is built to withstand the elements when being used at sea. This is a vitally important piece of certification to have, as not all radios have this.
The Bluetooth capabilities are built in to the radio to allow you to stream audio from any Bluetooth enabled device, such as from a smartphone or a tablet. There is also a USB input which allows you to easily charge your phone if required.
