Siri goes boating
Better still, if you have a compatible iPhone, you can enjoy Siri Eyes Free on your boat. Just press the volume key to activate voice commands for making calls, setting up reminders, and other features. You won’t even miss a text message while you’re on the water — Siri Eyes Free can read your messages out loud while you’re at the helm, and even let you compose responses while you’re baiting a hook.
Get the sound you want
The MEX-M100BT produces plenty of power without noise or distortion, and if you like low-end thump, you’ll love the Mega Bass feature. You can also customize the sound to suit your musical tastes using the built-in 10-band equalizer, selectable low- and high-pass crossovers, and other soundshaping tools. If you’re planning on expanding your system in the future, you’ll really appreciate the 6-channel preamp outputs.
You’ll also enjoy plenty of control options with the Sony MEX-M100BT. The intuitive front panel is easy to learn, but when you’re away from the receiver, you can use your smartphone or the included wireless remote. With Passenger Control for iPhone® and iPod® devices, your guests can play DJ while you’re at the helm.
This receiver also works with the SiriusXM tuner (not included), allowing you to enjoy satellite radio programming even when you’re miles and miles offshore. If you’re planning on expanding your system in the future, you’ll really appreciate the 6-channel preamp outputs.
