Alpine RUE-M1RF

boater, Crutchfield
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I was a bit worried the remote wouldn't work from the fly bridge on my boat. After I installed it, I couldn't wait to test it. Before I knew it, I was sitting in my captain's chair turning the volume up and down with no problem. So nice to adjust the volume now from my fly bridge with the Alpine CDE-143BT stereo in the cabin.
  • Pros: Range
  • Cons: I wish it could seek pre set stations on the radio versus scanning to the next available station.

Still up in the air on this purchase

  • Summary: I purchased this unit hoping to control my Head Unit from the water. It works from a pretty good distance . . .but I have to push the buttons quite a bit. Almost like they are not working 100% of the time. Kind of bites cuz if you hold the remote and the volume goes WAY up. I have about 2000 Watts RMS (need to be able to bring volume down quickly) on my boat, it takes a good while for the volume to go down. The buttons stick a little also.

Boat-Remote

Awboater, Crutchfield
23 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought this remote for my iDA-X100. It works fine, after I discovered you have to depress the "OFF" button to turn the unit on and off, while the owner's manual sez to use the SRC button. The switch membrane also seems to stick occasionally, which can result in constant transmission. But otherwise, it works like a champ, and I like the idea of a small waterproof remote that uses RF rather than IR for marine use - which means you can use it outside.
