Clarion have launched the new NMEA 2000 interface module. It allows you to control on board functions with any Multi-Function Display.

The MW6 NMEA 2000 Certified interface module allows Clarion marine source units to be seamlessly added to a boat’s onboard NMEA 2000 network, enabling control of the unit directly from the boat’s Multi-Function Display (MFD) device.

It is a simple plug-and-play installation with no programming necessary by the user. Once installed between the MFD and supported Clarion marine source units, boaters will be able to control various audio system functions, including power on / off, source selection, play / pause, next / previous track and more, directly from the screen of their MFD.

The MW6 also enables two-way communication between a Clarion source unit and MFD, providing the MFD feedback regarding source selection, song / track / album title, radio frequency and more to display within the GUI.
