Polaris Slingshot Bluetooth Audio Receiver by Clarion
If you own a Polaris Slingshot or plan to buy one you should know that the base model currently comes without a Head Unit / Audio Receiver and the SL Model Source Unit is limited in it's functionality. We've searched the globe for an Audio Receiver that would provide all the bells and whistles that the consumer demands while maintaining a 100% waterproof environment. Not an easy task to say the least. After almost a year of searching, Clarion released the CMS5. This head unit provides an enormous amount of scalability and includes essentials like AM/FM/Weather Band Radio, support for Bluetooth, Pandora, Dual USB, iPhone, iPad, Aux RCA Inputs, Sirius XM Satellite, dual camera inputs and more. We feel the most important feature of the CMS5 is that it's IP67 water rated.. which means it's VERY protected from water damage. Our Billet Aluminum Mounting Plate is made exclusively for the installation of the CMS5 in the Polaris Slingshot and is required to install the head unit. The mounting kit has been fabricated to perfectly fit the opening in the dash of your Slingshot.

IS THIS UNIT SIRIUS XM READY? I JUST NEED TO SUBSRIBE TO IT? ( TERRENCE SHADDERS, 06/12/2017 12:13 pm )
Hey Terrence,

Hello Terrence, yes this unit is XM ready.. but you'll still need to purchase a SiriusXM SXV200/300 Tuner Module and Antenna, then activate the service! I hope this helps. Thanks for the inquiry. ( SlingMods )
Is this unit compatible with the stock 2015 SL speaker pods? Also what harnesses do i have to purchase with the head unit. ( Dean Daenens, 06/05/2017 6:14 am )

Hello Dean, you will need to do 3 things if running the CMS5 head unit with the stock speakers.

1. Purchase the Power Harness here: http://www.slingmods.com/polaris-slingshot-aftermarket-stereo-wiring-harness?search=power%20harness

2. Purchase the OE Camera Integration Harness here: http://www.slingmods.com/polaris-slingshot-oem-backup-camera-integration-harness-aftermarket-head-unit?search=camera%20harness

3. You'll need to run additional speaker wires from the output on the Clarion to the OE Speaker pods for sound.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on this.

With this unit installed as a replacement for the factory infotainment system, how water proof/resistant is the mounting plate and the cavity behind the radio? When I wash my SS, I hose down the entire vehicle, cockpit included, and then I use a leaf blower to dry it off. Am I more likely to introduce water intrusion into that radio/electronics cavity with this setup than the factory set up? ( David Stidham, 02/02/2017 2:31 pm )
Hello David, the CMS5 mounting plate is very water resistant. I also hose down the interior of my Slingshot and have the CMS5 installed and not a drop of water gets through to the cavity behind the deck. ( SlingMods )
is this unit android compatible ? I see it says IPOD but does not mention android. ( craig david, 05/12/2016 10:26 pm )
Hello Craig, yes it is. I have an Android phone and my bluetooth works seamlessly with this head unit.

To have a sound system in a base Slingshot, at a minimum which components do you need to purchase along with the Clarion CM55 kit shown here? ( Jerome Connors, 04/04/2016 7:35 am )

Hello Jerome... At a minimum, you would need the Clarion CMS5 head unit with included mounting plate and the SSVWorks Front Speaker Pods with speakers. Those two items can be found here:

The Worst Mistake
So slow & clunky, how did Clarion think this was ready to be released on the market? You pretty much have to set it to play one way, and leave it alone. Beyond frustrating, staring at the slow-responding screen would be a serious danger while driving. They saved maybe $10/unit by using an underpowered CPU, but even worse, they chose to save another dollar by using a non-marine spec pot for the control knob. Being the only way to control it, once water seeps into that, countdown to kaput. They make it painfully difficult to find a way to satisfy warranty work, and one once the measly 12 month warranty is done, Clarion has no parts which can be purchased for it… you’re stuck with no help to correct what amounts to a fraudulent “marine “ product. They know they have a problem, as they quietly pulled the stereo off the market. Watch them release a new and improved CMS6 model without mentioning what a disaster the CMS5 was, or offering to fix their mistake for their CMS5 victims.

Great fit, easy install.
This is a great fitting, good looking radio that was easy to install. I installed the black box in my passenger seat cargo bin. The wires in the pic have seen been cleaned up and looks nicer. I primaraily use my cell phone and use my own music or stream Pandora; hate all the commercials on regular radio and I really don't get good radio reception even with an after market powered antenna. The radio is a little slow to respond to some commands however. So if you are one that is frequently changing stations or input devices this could start to get annoying. That's not me so I'm fine with the performance of the radio. I used 4 Kicker marine LED speakers in the SSV front & rear speaker pods with a JL Audio M700/5 amp

Worth the time spent to install
It took me about 4 hours to install this system. It is well worth the time and effort it took to install. I use the USB link to listen to the top 1000 hits of the 60's and 70's and don't have to find a Radio Station every few miles :) I highly recommend this system over the stock option.

Stereo
This system beats out the OEM system hands down. I now have XM, which I have been wanting for some time. I do a lot of riding, and finding a radio station to listen to is not always the easiest, having this system solves that problem. Would highly recommend is to serious riders.
