Dual is adding 10 new marine systems in 2014 including two radios that are round and designed to fit into the gauge holes in the boat’s console.
The MGH30BT and MGH20 are some of the first gauge hole receivers heading to market. They are CD-less (mechless) AM/FM/MP3/WMA radios that fit in 3-inch gauge openings, but the actual size of the radio is 4 inches.
Both units are marinized to IPX6 standards to work in heavy splashing and rain. Both offer direct control for iPod/iPhone devices via rear USB input.
The MGH30BT model has a large 3-inch TFT, multi-line, full-color LCD, and built-in Bluetooth with audio streaming.
The MGH20 has a 2-line LCD display and control for Pandora running on an iPhone connected via USB.
They ship in April at $199 and $149 suggested retail prices, respectively.
