Not a permanent marine stereo, but some consumers like its portability. Doesn't pair automatically.
A marine stereo is a system designed to withstand the elements. They are most often meant for installation in boats or on docks. A marine stereo should hold up well in the sun or rain. These systems can also withstand the corrosive nature of salt. Not all marine stereo systems are waterproof, meaning only some can actually be submerged in water. Some systems are merely water resistant—they can get a little wet and still work but should not be completely submerged. If you plan to enjoy your stereo system on the open water, consider a higher-powered model. Most models come with features similar to a car stereo. Check the stereo’s ability to connect to your device through a USB or Bluetooth connection.
