The XMA1 is an older double DIN cassette unit with CD changer capabilities. It should accept the Clarion EA1251 iPod adapter for units older than 2006. I would call Clarion USA just to confirm though..

CeNet is Clarion's proprietary expansion interface for their stereo systems.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Just toss the cd changer. Once you get your collection on the ipod there will be no need for it. I use my ipod everywhere, on the boat, on the motorcycle, through the intercom on the plane and primarily on the bus going to work. Ipod is the greatest thing that ever happened for commuters using public transportation.

I wasn't aware that there is a possiblity of interfacing my ipod using the jacks for the changer. I'll be looking into that but, I have had decent results with my FM unit. The biggest advantage is that I can have the ipod next to the helm, so I can select tunes and pause the music if I need/want to. I still have to go below to adjust volume though. If I ever upgrade the stereo I'll be looking for remote capabilty.

Ah yes that's the predecessor to the CAWV2 that I mentioned. I looked at the XMA-1 manual and it doesn't mention anything about being CeNET capable so I'm thinking it might not work. But Definitely Xort should call Clarion to be sure.

Thanks much for finding that. I did a websearch for xma-1 and didn't find anything of help.

Mid
tossing the cd changer is a possiblility. want to hold off if possible altho I totally agree and will still have the single cd in the stereo.

thanks

Ed...Unfortunately I think Maines solution will not work for your unit. I have Clarions 16 page compatibility chart book for IPOD and it says NOTHING they sell will make your unit compatible. If you or anyone else would like the booklet in pdf form...just send me a pm with your e-mail. You can double check with Clarion...
Customer Service: 800-347-8667

Your actual product manual can be found here. http://www.clarion.com/us/en/MungoBl...A1(Manual).pdf

Alternatively and more cheaply...since you do have a cassette with a cassette adapter you can simply play through one of those with good sound quality.

READ the reviews about mod needed for some auto reverse decks !

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

On the Clarion Website under the support tab. Look in the Marine -> Source units area.


Is the plug for your changer square or round?

That's assuming he actually has a CeNET connector. If it's a CBUS connector then we'l have to do a little hacking. It IS doable though.
