Shark Radio Update
Written by rvicke on 3/26/2012 at 02:10 pm

I am curious....I'm using the Shark 100w, and can hear it, but the remote
stinks....they use some combination of buttons that doesn't work too well while
you are riding....hard to push two buttons at the same time with one hand,
particularly the throttle hand....;)

My curiosity is how the wireless remote works.? The wired remote is easy....plug
it in and go, but the wireless....doesn't it have to be 'line of sight', and
since my radio is in the trunk....hard to do.

Thanks,

Rick

PS: Just bought a new (to me) '02 Toyota Spyder....cool car, crappy
engine....so, while my new, low mileage Toyota is inoperable while I fix an
issue, my PC is my daily commuter.....my Toyota, only 10 years old and less than
70k miles, is less reliable than my 23 year old PC with 30k miles, and
ultimately, the PC engine will outlast the Toyota engine, which will be replaced
before 90k (if I make it that far)....;)

    I experimented with the Shark 150w and though I could hear, I couldn't really "hear" it. I would catch bits and pieces of the music enough to know what song was playing when at highway speeds. I have since switched to the DWG sy

      Here is one that might work. Proably made in China but at least sold by a semi reputable company in the USA

    I had given up on the Shark radio, and was about to pull it out, when I wondered if the thumb drive I had used went bad. Changed it, and suddenly the Shark started working again! But remote controls were not responding consistently. A friend

      Thanks for the update Dave. Even though I'm not in the market now you never know what might happen to my audio system. Tim Davies Seneca Falls, NY YankeeSmuggler II 1998 Sent from my iPhone 4S???? On Jul 2, 2012, at 5:01
