What type of antenna should I use for DAB/DAB+ radio on the MS-RA60?
The MS-RA60 has a built-in DAB module so no external module is required. Simply connect an appropriate AM/FM antenna to the MS-RA60 which has a Motorola type antenna connector to enjoy DAB/DAB+ streaming wherever it is supported (Europe and Australia only; does not support traffic or weather). If you are installing the stereo on a boat with a metal hull, you must use a ground-dependent antenna, and if you are installing the stereo on a boat with a non-metal hull, you must use a ground-independent antenna.
Are you experiencing Bluetooth disconnections on your phone with your Apollo RA770 or SRX400 when streaming audio?
We have identified an issue with the Bluetooth firmware and is currently waiting for an update from the chipset supplier. A workaround to mitigate this is to disable Wi-Fi if you are not using it or have a valid Access Point connection to your phone to support Apple AirPlay.

When playing music via Apple AirPlay on my Apollo RA770, my NRX300 remote shows 'unknown source' on the screen. How can I fix this?
Please update the software of your NRX300 remote. Simply turn on the remote and connected stereo and then go to Settings>Update>MS-NRX300 to allow the remote to update. We recommend that before doing this, you also ensure your stereo is running the latest software version.
The screen on my MS-RA55 has fogged up. Is this an issue?
Most marine stereos have small vents on their cases to allow a way for moisture to find its way in. In some limited instances, it is possible for moist air to be drawn into the vents when the air inside the stereo cools down after being turned off. Direct sunlight on the front can draw this moisture up against the screen, causing fogging - but turning on the stereo will speed up the moisture removal.
Fogging is not abnormal, nor will it harm your stereo as it is built to withstand the moist marine environment.
Can I connect a MS-DAB100A or a SiriusXM module to my MS-RA205, when I am using a MS-BT200?
Unfortunately not, as the MS-DAB100A, SiriusXM module and MS-BT200 use the same port on the rear of the MS-RA205 stereo. To be able to have DAB/SiriusXM functionality as well as Bluetooth, you will need to purchase a MS-BT100 and connect this to the stereo via the AUX input (Loom B).
