Sony replacement options with RM-X60M

Recommended Posts

clint888

Hi all

 

We have a 2006 247lsv which came with a sony sound system with RM-X60M remote heads around the boat. These units aren't sold anymore and I was chasing suggestions on an alternative product that would fit the same hole dimensions around the boat. Has anyone had a stereo refit and still used the remotes?

Those remotes are proprietary Unilink bus.  Nothing but Sony will work with them.  If you buy a new stereo (JVC, Aquaticav, Clarion, etc.) you can get wired remotes.

Are you looking for a replacement RM-X60M remote? I have one that I just pulled out of my boat when I upgraded the system.

I'm looking for a replacement RM-X60M remote. Just purchased a 2008 Four Winns 224F with the same head unit but the remote isn't functioning. Anyone willing to sell a used replacement?

Just went through this problem with my 2006 boat, but mine was wired with the Sony RM-XM10 remotes.

I'm pretty disappointed in Sony.  They don't currently even make wired remotes, let alone support those that they have made in the past.

My biggest problem was the hole in my transom drilled for the original remote.  I can live without the one at the helm.

After considering all the current options, I elected to kick the can down the road and purchase a used Sony remote.

I seriously considered switching head units to a Fusion, and purchasing their wireless remotes, and that may be what I eventually do.

Patch the transom with a plug and some epoxy, sand, some gel coat if you like, then put a nice decal over it.  Done.

The Sony remotes were never waterproof, go figure....

Me, rather than remove the non functional one and patch the hole, I plan on replacing the entire boat.

ScottD. are you looking for just the RM-X60M   remote or the remote and adapter that connect to the head unit? I have the remote and it was working as of August until I updated my system.

Ill let it go for 25.00 plus whatever it cost to ship to Alabama.

 

Let me know
