There are a lot of different models of Poly Planer, or any other brand, so a general answer is pretty worthless. Look up the specifications for the exact model number you are interested in and see if there is an Auxillary input. That is what is needed to add an external audio source.

You'll have a hard time finding radios by "Poly-Planer".
It's Poly-Planar. .

Thks guys for your help, the model is the MRD-60 Marine Stereo, the one with the water-proof cover. The Jennson looked cool but I'm kind of set on the Poly. I have a Std Horizon which does not want to die and it's over 8 yrs old.

I know Jimh does not like tunes on his boat but I get all of my complaints from people who anchor near me that I don't turn my music up enough, then again I only play easy listening, Sinatra, Bennet, Domingo and Bocelli. I've made a lot of good friends on the water by playing timeless tunes.

According to Poly-Planar's website, that model has two
Aux inputs.

I have that exact setup -- and it works great. See pics at:

I highly suggest mounting the stereo in your console and going with either the wired or wireless remote (I went wired as I had an empty old 2" gauge cutout anyway...)

Works great. An added bonus is that you can run your VHF through the second AUX input if you'd like.

You need to purchase a separate aux input kit part (see their wesite for more info)
