I ordered the Jensen Marc100 which the wired remote that’s capable with the MA200 stereo deck in my 2017 AR195. Currently I run Bluetooth off my iPhone most of the time and use my phone to pick and choose songs and adjust the volume. However it runs my phone down fairly fast and with my phone in the sun it’s caused it to overheat a few times. I’m hoping this will solve my problem and I can just keep my phone in the glovebox plugged into the usb charging port. The only thing after I order it I looked at my dash and I’m not sure where it will fit for mounting.
I think the parent company for the Marine stereos labeled as Marine audio, Jensen and PolK are made by ASA . My rear remote knob went bad on my 2017 242x and I ordered the MARC200 (Jensen remote ) that pugs into the the stock harness at the time amazon had them listed for $19 now they are $58 you can add remote control Y cable ad add up to 3 if needed it works . The hole needed for the marc200 is 40mm or 1 5/8'' it comes with the extension cable. These remote units seem to all work together and use the same plugs and pin out configuration and allow multiple remotes using the y cable shown below
If you do install in the same location by the throttle, don’t tighten down both sides real tight. It’s not a flat surface and if you tighten it down all the way after a month or two it causes the board to flex and the buttons stop working. I backed out the screw on one side and worked like new.
Jenson told me that the MARC-200 won’t work on my 2017 AR195 with MA-200 headunit and I need the MARC-100... does anyone know If that’s true??looks like the only difference is that the MARC200 has a male connector and MARC-100 has female?? The MARC-200 is much more available online and cheaper
