    Yes we all have ADD here and can't stay on a serious topic. Is this a great forum or what...I wouldn't want to be anywhere else

    Nothing will get in or out there. I'm not sure you would want either. D Divers just scare and impress the hell out of me. I was a Coast Guard Safety Officer and rescue swimmer. It was hell just staying on the surface!

    Check this one out - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013ALB2TI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    HAs video inputs, but not sure how to activate the video display. I originally bought this uinit because it had video input capability, but after installing a 24" wide rear view mirror I am no longer too concerned about needing a rear view camera. Doesn't have RCA connections for an amp, so you need an amp that can accept speaker line inputs. Price has dropped since I bought mine.:( I am only now starting to get around to making a faceplate and trying to get my system installed.

    I just ordered the rockford fosgate PMX-2 headunit. It's weatherproof.... now to find a kit that will put it in the dash with the 3" hole opening to install it.

    the face plate is 4.5" by 4.2".... but the opening for the back of the unit is 3" round opening.... it has all the pre outs I need and the controls I wanted and its weatherproof.

    It looks really nice - take a look at this set up it may give you an idea on how to mount yours. This was my original set up before I switched to the Clarion I have now. For Sale - REDUCED MORE - Stereo Head Unit For Sale

    I'm considering swapping out the OEM Polaris radio for the Clarion CMS5. (I'll keep the original speakers).
    Will I be wasting my money and does it come with the appropriate camera? It appears that the "Slingshot Only" one does and the "Slingmods" on does not include it. Can anyone help?

    I'd at least go with the Pioneer upgrade in the stock pods (rotate your phone the long way, see: Hedges Index: Stock Speaker Upgrade on the cheap).

    The stock camera on the SL should plug right in if I remember correctly. Those with a base model probably want to order the Polaris plastic camera housing and a decent camera, which it sounds like @Noel Hughes of Slingshot Only is including from what you're saying. Since an SL has a camera you'd have to ask Noel if he thinks there is any benefit to putting in a different camera.

    Yes Slingshot Only Cms5 comes with the camera and relay/wiring harness for the camera to work when the slingshot goes into reverse
    The CLARiiON Cms5 would be an upgrade over stock with the stock speakers.
    Just would have to be careful not to over power the stock pods
