'02 197 alpine MC 20 in the armrest

Has anyone put this thing in the armrest? I saw where one replaced a speedo...I really would like to keep it in the stock location but if I can't I need to come up with an alternative.

Suggestions please...photos would be great. Overall diameter is about 4" I haven't had a chance to do any measuring of the armrest yet but as I remember the existing remote is about half that size.

Where did you read the lack of full iPod control with the MW1? Just asking, not questioning your info. I am going through the same thoughts on upgrading to something I can control the iPod from the remote.

I am also interested. I was looking to purchase an Alpine CDA-118M deck and a MC20 remote.

I read his post and was bored so I went to the Clarion website trying to find any information on the remote I could but there is no user manual for the remotes, that I could find.

But I found this.

With the CMD6, you can fully control your USB-connected iPod via wired marine remote control (optional).

And it has a photo of the MW1 so I would think it does have full control.

More:

Direct USB iPod control

The smart USB connection enables you to continue enjoying your favourite tunes offshore. Just connect your iPod’s USB cable to the CMD6’s rear USB input and you get complete control of your iPod including genre/album/song title search, and you can even use your iPod’s control wheel (Simple control mode).

BTW:

The face on the MC2 or MC20 is about 4 inches but the back part is only 2 inches so it does fit in the same hole as the other remotes.

Question is will the 4 inch face fit on the armrest? that is the deciding factor for me right now betweent the alpine and the clarion the MW1 is a little smaller.

I don't have a 197 so I do not know the answer to your question.
