Finally!!! 205v solution to the large alpine remote.

Alpine mc10 or MC20 remote....it fits in the drivers side cup holder. Just a couple dabs of super glue to hold it. The wires come right out the bottom. Don't need to cut up the dash, or lose the speedo or whatever else. It's not out of reach too bad, and if you ever swap stereos or boats again, you can take the alpine with you and just pop in a new cup holder! It's 100% reversible!! Drop in a 2" blank gauge or a depth finder in the old hole, tell the observer to hold (not drink) your beer and yer dun!

Talking

Some people may say I'm a hero for coming up with this. I can't say either way. I'll let history decide.

Looks like a perfect fit. I might choose clear silicone to mount it, but that's just my

In hindsight, i would have used silicone too. The super glue is a bit "chalky" looking.

do you know if that remote will work with any alpine unit or does it only work with their marine head units?

it is only compatible with the 3 alpine marine units.

I just touched it up with a black automotive paint marker, and hit it with silicone. looks much better.

To actually gain hero status, you'll have to tell us what to do with the hole in the dash where the Clarion remote used to be.

1) 2" faria depth gauge.
2) 2" clock or a blank gauge.
3) make a handgun holster out of it.
4) make a flower vase like the old vw beetles had.
5) make a tip jar for the driver there - my favorite.

Hero. That just happened.

Tip jar sounds like a winner to me.
