industry's first wireless remote controls for marine audio, allowing boaters on
the deck to control a stereo in the cabin without running wires through the

The Alpine MC10 commander
kit uses an RF transceiver "brain" and one wireless mountable remote control.
It works with Alpine's two marine head units â€” iDA-X100M and CDA-9886M â€” letting
users remotely search through iPod and satellite-radio selections.  The remote has an LCD screen that displays
song and artist information or album information. It can also control volume.

Additional remotes
may be added to the system without causing interference as each remote has a
unique RF ID, said Alpine.  

The MC10 can
withstand water, salt and sun abuse and has an IPx6 water-resistance rating.
First shown at International CES in January, it is available at a suggested
retail of $230, and additional remotes may be added at $150 each.
