New boat with pa4a and radio came on to last station playing after battery switched on but head unit had no illumination/blank display and no knobs functioned so had to pull fuse. No, I tried after plugging in the fuse a second time and same head unit dead. Only had like 10 hours on the system.

This unit drops Bluetooth signal repeatedly and the screen locks up on the first or second song that is played. It's been sent back for service but told that nothing is wrong. Still does the same thing. App does not work properly and if your source screen (iPhone) goes to sleep mode it will try to reconnect. Frustrating! Sound is really good but cannot get consistent BT connection. Works great if wired connection used but not what I paid for and it's 2017. Could NOT recommend this unit.
Looking at replacing with FUSION!!

I bought this unit and had problems immediately with connecting after pairing a device on bluetooth. I returned the unit to the factory, and they said it was fine, just reset the unit when you have the problem. So, every couple of days when I can't connect, guess what? I have to pull the unit from the bulkhead and press a button on the back of the amp/preamp behind it. Awkward and time-consuming. This is completely unacceptable in a high-end stereo!
