I finally set up the NMEA 20000 network completing the install of my Fusion Ms-ra205 marine stereo. I have to say I am very happy with this system. It is simple to use with all the features you need and nothing else.

A little background on the stereo setup in my 245. The boat came with a Jensen head unit with Hose speakers. The Jensen worked good but the fm reception was nonexistent. So last year I replaced it with a Kenwood marine head unit. It was a nice unit with Bluetooth control etc. Well after about nine months it died... corrosion on the main board. Best buy protection plan replaced it for me... then the replacement unit died from corrosion as well! And this was in the cabin outed behind a splash cover... so no more Kenwood for me.

I found the Fusion unit online and was impressed with the specs... and the Nmea 20000 networking ability.... so I picked one up along with the optional bluetooth module. The Fusion unit is much smaller than a standard din unit. So I made a starboard adaptor plate. Wiring was easy and straight forward. I was able to mount the bluetooth module up high for better reception. However I didn't have time to route the n2k cables when I first installed the unit. I finally had time to install it this weekend. Wow is all I can say... being able to control the stereo from my Hds is awesome! The sound quality is excellent!

Here is a video of it in action:
