    FYI for those with/considering the Gekko Alliance / Aeware remotes, they are NOT marine audio remotes. In fact they are not even vehicle audio period. They are SPA wired keypads ... yes spa, as in hot tub. SC uses them because they are dirt cheap and work genericlly with a variety of HU's. The white one from a couple years are NOT backlit, they will NOT operate your ipod, what they will do is on/off, band, volume & mute if i remember right. These are discontinued.

    There is/was a version two of that remote but from I found out it two is pretty much discontinued as well. If you guys want remotes then my suggestion would be to get the proper ones for your HU's if you want full features.

    That I do not know, I just know that I used 2 Kenwood KCA RC50MR's, spliced the wires together, and they work. Backlights are controlled by Nav lights being on.

    nash, the 700u is a different animal from the other kenwood decks. it will ONLY support the 107r remote. none of the others are compatible with it. I know this as I spent time on the phone with kenwood and then tried to plug my old transom remote, the kcar100 into the 700u and although they are both a din-style cable, they are not compatible. I had to order the 107r. the instruction manual does list that the 107 is the only remote that will work with it, and earmark's site only shows the 107r as the compatible remote. the 700, unlike some of the other kenwood decks will support up to 3 of the 107r's tho.
    each 107r gets a unique "address" similar to an ip.
    I don't know much about the rest of the kenwood lineup, but if you do the 700u, you must replace all the remotes with the 107r's.

    Thanks for the input. After doing a little research on the board I'm having the dealer swap my unit for the KMR-440U hopefully the existing remotes will work. If not I will swap them out accordingly at a later time.

    I believe the 440u HU will work fine with the transom remote. You can wire multiple 1 wire remotes together and they will all control the HU thru the steering wheel control wire. And the best thing about the 440u you can add the digital 107r remote later @ the driver seat and it will control every aspect of the stereo system. I have a usb stick in the HU and do not have to open the glove box unless I change the usb stick. Great set up I don't beleive you can go wrong with the 440u.

    I received the radio today and will install it over the weekend. I was thinking of adding a remote in the bow. Has anyone done this?

    I havnt installed a remote in the bow yet. All it takes is a small hole for the cable behind the remote and some 3m tape which im sure the remove comes with it.

    Just have to make sure the wire will make it to the plug and the deck can use multiple remotes before you drill. Also double and triple check before you drill.

    Have you drilled Gell coat before?

    No, But I was thinking of putting the remote inside the bow like near one of the speakers. I do know that you are supposed to cover the area with tape and drill backwards to get through the gell coat to avoid cracking...right?
