Kenwood KMR-M562BT

Kenwood USA said it will ship its 2015 marine/powersports audio products this month, offering Android control for the first time.

Where last year, Kenwood marine audio decks controlled iPhones, this year, they can also control music from Android smartphones by a simple USB connection from the radio to the phone.

As marine units, the three new decks use conformal coated main circuit boards to resist moisture.  They also have front, rear and subwoofer preouts for system building.

The marine models include two CD receivers and one mechless (CD-less) deck:

It accepts up to 6 RC35MR remotes, and is SiriusXM-Ready (SXV300).  It also works with iHeartRadio, and Pandora via both iPhone and Android phones.
