Here are some key features and considerations regarding golf cart radios:

  1. Installation: Golf cart radios are usually designed for easy installation and can be mounted into the dashboard or mounted to the roof of your golf cart. Sometimes a custom dash board may need to be used.
  2. Audio Output: Golf cart radios often come with built-in speakers or audio outputs to connect external speakers. The audio quality may vary depending on the brand and model of the speakers, so it's worth considering the sound performance before making a purchase.
  3. Source Options: Most golf cart radios have multiple source options to play audio content. These may include AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music from your cell phone, and USB ports for connecting to external devices
  4. Weatherproofing: Since golf carts are often exposed to outdoor elements, it's important to choose a golf cart radio that is marine-grade or at least water-resistant. This ensures that the radio can withstand rain, dust, and other environmental factors without being damaged.
  5. Power Consumption: Consider the power consumption of the radio and its impact on the golf cart's battery life. Some radios have energy-saving features or automatic shutoff functions to preserve power when not in use.
  6. Answer / make calls and be hands-free with no distractions. The built-in microphone picks up your voice and your cart speakers let you hear the person on the other side. Use hands free text dictation. Play and control your music and apps like Spotify / Pandora wirelessly,

When purchasing a golf cart radio, it's recommended to check compatibility with your specific golf cart model and consider any additional accessories or wiring that may be required for installation.

These radio kits come in two versions:

Weather Resistant

Weather resistant means it's not water proof and it will be damaged if it you are caught in the rain and it gets wet. If your cart has an enclosure that protects the radio from getting water on it, it may be fine.

Water Resistant or Marine Grade

A water resistant or marine grade radio means if your cart is out in the rain it will not be damaged.

You can purchase them in kits which saves money and time.  Many of the kits feature:
