Question about Clarion XMD3-RET AM/FM MARINE CD PLAYER
Same problem: I have a Clarion Marine Magi 2 CENET XMD3 in my boat.
I was thinking about solving the problem with the 3.5mm to RCA adapter as a solution, but I was wondering if there was any way that I could hookup my ipod so that it would charge as well as play through the sound system (or does that only work for certain ipods?). I'm concerned that if I use the 3.5mm adapter, then the battery will run out quickly and I don't want to run cables everywhere. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I am not sure that you will be able to power the iPod through the sound system. Could you not run a nearby 12VDC plug for power without it looking bad or getting in the way?
This seems more of an iPod issue rather than a Clarion issue. You may be able to get a solution from the iPod Support community with a Google search for iPod Support.
I trust this information proves beneficial.

SOURCE: NO SOUND FROM CLARION XMD3
I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.

SOURCE: connecting my ipod to xmd3
I believe that if you use the RCA connectors, you can use your iPod. If you use the clarion cca connector, you get more functionality from the dash of the clarion.

With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.
