Marine Entertainment System with Bluetooth & NMEA 2000

Sources: AM / FM / USB / iPhone / iPod / Android AOA / Bluetooth / DAB+ Ready (Requires MS-DAB100A)

Introducing the MS-RA70N, Fusion’s sleekest value-packed marine stereo, designed to deliver a quality on-water entertainment experience by incorporating some of the latest marine technologies. The MS-RA70N is engineered to seamlessly replace any standard DIN sized non-marinized stereo without the need to reconfigure dash space. Clever styling gives the installer the option of either mounting the stereo with a conventional flush finish or integrating it flat into a glass helm, ensuring a high-end finish to the installation.

UPDATE: Now with added support for Fusion-Link Lite via ANT for Garmin watch control.

Features:

A2DP Bluetooth wireless technology with Fusion-Link app remote control available - Stream your favorite soundtrack from any compatible device with control* available from the stereo or your connected Apple or Android device via the FUSION-Link Bluetooth app. Simply download the free Apple® or Android™ Fusion-Link remote control app for Bluetooth from the Apple® App Store or Google Play™ Store and enjoy localized zone control, source navigation, track selection and the freedom of wireless control.

The Fusion-Link Wireless Remote Control app for iPad or iPhone is available for FREE download from Apple app store, click HERE

The Fusion-Link Wireless Remote Control app for Android is available for FREE download from Google Play, click HERE

To download the free Fusion-Link Lite app from the Garmin Connect IQ Store to enable wireless control via ANT technology from your compatible Garmin watch, click HERE

Multiple sources available including USB MP3 playback and AM/FM radio - Listen to USB MP3 audio, connect your supported smartphone or even relax to your local AM/FM station; the MS-RA70N delivers marine grade entertainment to those who would normally have to resort to installing rust prone car audio stereos. Rest easy, let Fusion entertain you on the water. DAB radio is accessible with the MS-DAB100A module and antenna package (sold separately).

IPX7 water resistant front face with optically bonded LCD - The MS-RA70N is designed and engineered specifically for the marine environment, with an IPX7 front panel (when mounted correctly) to withstand the environment like none other, perfectly paired with an optically bonded LCD for crystal clear display on the water.

Flat or flush mounting installation options - Two options are available for installation, giving you the option of a conventional flush mount or seamless integration into a glass helm with a flat finish for high-end aesthetics.

Multi-Zone control (2 zone system) - With two independent audio zones available, each with advanced localized menu controls, including zone naming, you can easily customize and control your listening experience in each zone. Note: Line Out/Sub Out requires additional amplification.

FUSION-Link NMEA 2000 ready for connection and control from any supported Multi-Function Display - The MS-RA70N is a Fusion-Link Wired NMEA 2000 certified product and is compatible with a range of the world’s leading Multi-Function Displays for on-screen audio control. When pairing the MS-RA70N with a supported Chartplotter or Fish Finder, you bring your music to the big screen, allowing you to keep an eye on the charts or the fish while skipping tracks or adjusting the volume at the same time. In addition to MFD control, the MS-RA70N will connect to any Fusion NRX series remote control attached to the same powered NMEA 2000 network for localized control of the audio zones. (Note: the NRX remote must be incorporated onto a powered network. If you are planning on using the MS-RA70N and a NRX series remote on a standalone network, additional cabling is required to power the network).

*Play, pause and skip tracks.

The MS-RA70N is protected by a 12 month worldwide consumer warranty.
