I have 2006 230V with the stock clarion, sub, and amps. Boat has remote at driver side and rear. If i replace my stereo will my remotes still work. Clarion makes a few with bluetooth and was wondering which one would work.

The simple answer is no. Your current generation remotes will not work with the new Clarion generation head-units.

Don't get a regular Bluetooth adapter. The audio is compressed and will sound horrible. Get something that supports aptx.

Always interested in better quality !! What is APTX and how do I know if the adapter supports it?

The adapter will state it explicitly. Both of the ones in the links I posted support it. Your phone also must support it, but most new and recent phones do. I re-read your question, here's a better answer. Aptx is a specific Bluetooth protocol for high quality music. Google is your friend.

You can keep your remotes with an updated stereo I have a 2000 XStar with all the factory remotes with a Bluetooth capability You just need the adapter which can be had on ebay

I will look for the post that has the exact part numbers little later this evening and get bakc to you. Do you know which model stereo and remotes you have?

ya basically if you want your remotes to work you need to get another clarion stereo. swatguy is right that you need the adapter (basically switches 8 pin to 6 pin to make the old remotes work w/ new system). http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clarion-CCUMRA1-8-Pin-New-stereo-to-6-Pin-Old-remote-Adapter-Cable-equivalent-/130738444207

when I did this upgrade I kept the stern remote the same and upgraded the driver remote to the mw1 cause the new remote has lcd display and ipod control which is nice.

I want to add a stereo remote on the driver side of my x14 V. What would be the best tool for making that hole in the plastic housing around the throttle arm?? Have any of you done this?? I get freaked out by the idea of making a hole in my boat!! Doh!
