NMEA2000-enabled multi-function displays are a great way to consolidate data from numerous devices and make it more accessible, and save on valuable helm space. Prospec Electronics delivers two stereo receivers that easily connect into an NMEA2000 network, the Infinity by Harman PRV450 and Infinity by Harman MBB400. Now, controlling music through a GPS, chart plotter or fish finder is as easy as touching a screen.

The INFPRV450 is a stand-alone receiver that has a color 3.5" TFT screen.  By installing a stand-alone unit, audio can still be played in the event of failure of other components. Also, the Infinity receiver allows for more user information than what would appear on just the GPS device.

When there's not an inch of dash space left, the INFMBB400 is perfect. It's a black box stereo receiver that provides everything an owner would want, but without the faceplate. It simply connects into the NMEA2000 network and uses an enabled display to control the music.

Both stereos boast 4 x 50 watts of power and exceptional sound clarity. They have AM/FM tuning, Bluetooth® audio streaming with ID tagging, USB and aux inputs, and are Sirius XM-ready. They're RF and wired remote ready, and come with three pair of pre outs, including a separate subwoofer out, and an NMEA2000 connector. The INFMBB400 adds Weather band, RDS, and separate zone control, and is made for the iPod® and iPhone®.

The Infinity by Harman PRV450 retails for $379.95 and the MBB400 for $499.95.
